I like to share creative ideas for moms, DIY, family fun, crafts, travel, recipes, party planning, shopping, discounts, gifts, and more.

The strawberry really is an amazingly popular food and cooking ingredient. We use it in so many ways, such as:

  • Breakfast: yogurt, smoothies, pancakes, muffins, blintzes

  • Lunch: On salads such as the berry spinach salad recipe you'll find below.
  • Dinner: On grilled chicken breast as a spicy strawberry salsa, or perhaps on a delicious steak with a balsamic berry reduction.

  • Desserts: ice cream, sauce, chocolate covered berries, cheesecake, shortcake, fruit salad.
  • Snacks: popsicles, fruit chews
  • Drinks: smoothies, daiquiris and margaritas, vodka, or refreshing Strawberry Lemonade.

One of my favorite ways to eat strawberries is in a salad, here's a great recipe for a Strawberry Spinach Salad.

Wash berries under cold water before cutting off the tops (hulling). A strawberry stem remover is a handy tool.

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
