Fresh berries add an unexpected kick to a grilled cheese favorite.

Strawberries in desserts are expected (and delicious) but it’s when we mix our sweets with our savories that things start to get really interesting. In the past, I’ve had great success pairing strawberries with basil and separately, with balsamic…but what about all three together? If this grilled cheese is any indication, then they are a trio made in heaven. The syrupy, almost sweet tangy vinegar is perfect for really bringing the berries and herbs together, while the brie unites them in sandwich unity, making each bite more exciting than the last.

Fresh berries add an unexpected twist to the feta and black bean tacos.

I can’t seem to control myself around strawberries these days. I buy flat after flat with the intention of DOING something with them, but they just look so juicy and sweet and perfect that I end up eating them, straight from the carton, unabashedly “as is”.

That is, until I made these tacos. And now I can’t think of doing anything else with them! They are the perfect mix of sweet spicy savory and allow you to still appreciate the beautiful flavor of in-season berries, just in a new (and equally delicious) light.

It’s still hot here in Austin, and by hot I mean 105 degrees. Yep that’s right, while most of you around the country are getting out your boots and jackets and making hot apple cider, we are still in the throws of a full blown heat wave!  After lounging by the pool this weekend I decided I needed something cool and refreshing and alas, this Strawberry Lime Parfait was born! I will definitely be making this the next time we have friends over. It is so pretty and freezes well so can be made well in advance. Read More
