If I had a kitchen full of strawberries my kids would be ecstatic! We would eat them fresh (we love them plain with nothing on them!), until we couldn't eat anymore. Then I would freeze the rest for smoothies, strawberry rhubarb pies, and baking into muffins and cakes. We LOVE strawberries!

Strawberries really mark the beginning of summer fresh fruits. I like to slightly crush and add a sweetener and eat alone or with cottage cheese or throw some in a blender with a milk alternative and make a strawberry milkshake or also add a banana for a double fruit smoothie. Of course on the decadent side nothing beats a real old fashioned strawberry shortcake with "real" whipped cream....:)

I'd make Monkey Bread and top it with a dollop of fresh made strawberry butter. Then I'd have lots of Strawberry lemonade available. And a spinach, strawberry and goat's cheese salad.

I would make unlimited smoothies with strawberries, top crepes with strawberries, eat them raw, and maybe try making jam!

I'd invite my 5 grandchildren over with their parents of course, who more than love these strawberries, they adore them, and serve them for our 50th wedding anniversary.

"Holy strawberries Batman, were in a JAM!" If I had unlimited strawberries in the Kitchen I would go banana's! And speaking of banana's, I'm sure I would be mixing in some banana's with my strawberries for some delicious smootie action! Strawberries sort of kick butt all around. Delicious, and super nutricious considering they have the highest andy score for fruit. (Over 200 points! Wheww!) Aside from smooties, I would be completely psyched to learn and try out some new and amazing recepies to whip up with my new immortal fruit! Cakes, pies, ice creams, and even some exotic type recipies that you would never in a million years beleive to be good! Whats more? I would love to make an edible sculpture out of the strawberries for WholeFoods!! Thanks, Ben Carothers :)

Ohhhh, strawberries! First, I would cook a delicious breakfast of strawberry pancakes with homemade strawberry syrup for my family. I would add sparkling wine with strawberries for the adults and sparkling cider with strawberries for the kids. I would make extra strawberry syrup to freeze for later. Lunch would be spent with friends. Fresh, delicious strawberries with different kinds of cheese and crackers with homemade strawberry sangria. I sensing a wine theme here, too! Dinner would be a romantic one with my hubby using some of the fabulous strawberry recipes on the Whole Foods website. Since strawberries last for a couple days, I could eat more the next day, make jam and what the heck more sangria!

I would just eat them plain - they are great for you and delicious, too. I would freeze any left over.

I would make strawberry jam with my kids, which they could give to their teachers for Teacher Appreciation Week.

In a Strawberry Jamboree, anything goes. Strawberries are not just for yogurt parfaits. Let's make them sweeter in ice cream and strawberry-rhubarb pie. And then let's bring them to the start of the meal in a strawberry salad. The possibilities are endless. With such a naturally sweet and healthy treat, I'd eat them any way I could!

Strawberries on pancakes to begin the day, making strawberry preserves in the afternoon and end the day with strawberry shortcake! Can't ever get enough! :)

We just wash 'em and eat 'em. We love, love, love strawberries! If there are a few that are a bit on the soft side we mash them up and spread them on some buttered toast. Yummy!

I would love to have a kitchen full of strawberries. I would make strawberry smoothies for my boys. I would also make strawberry jam. For dessert I would mix up a lot of cut strawberries with dairy free cream cheese and sugar yummy! I would love to surprise my friend next door with a jug of ice cold strawberry limeade.

A kitchen full of strawberries sounds like a little piee of heaven! The kids and the husband would eat many raw, as is. The teenager and I would make smoothies and strawberry shortcake. Then I would have the pleasure of making strawberry jam (our favorite), strawberry lemonade concentrate to can for later, strawberry ice cream, mabye dried srtawberries or strawberry fruit leather. A kitchen full of strawberries would definately keep me busy (and smiling) for a few days!

First, a question--may I have a couple of days' notice? If you give me a week, here's the plan: 1. Invite the neighborhood. Most people love a "real" strawberry as much as they love a "real" tomato. So I'm sure everyone would happily accept an invitation to a mini Strawberry Festival in the back yard, especially if we throw in a little whiffleball game, some good coffee and a tray of mimosas. 2. Get out the trusty old fondue pot, given to my parents around the time of the first lunar landing... or maybe even rent one of those great chocolate fountains! Then, of course, we'd have to have some of that incredible Valrhona chocolate for melting. Maybe skinny branches from the just-bloomed forsythia bush instead of traditional fondue forks? Have to make sure it wouldn't taint the flavor of the berries. 3. Find the recipe for Aunt Lil's famous shortcake, given to me in a packet of recipes (wonderfully stained from years of stoveside splatters) sometime back in the last century. Hmmm, individual shortcakes or big, cake-sized extravaganzas? Maybe both, we'll have to see. As I recall, the shortcake isn't too sweet, so we'll chop up some of the fruit, put a little sugar on it the night before, and use it to moisten the cakes before we pile on the just-sliced fruit. 4. Dust off the Kitchen Aid mixer and find the whipping attachment, so we can make bowls and bowls of whipped cream. The big dilemma here will be how to satisfy purists (no sugar, no vanilla) as well as the more decadent types who love their cream sweetened... Oh, and then there's the option of adding a little orange peel, maybe a hint of cardamom, how about shaved chocolate? We might just have to make more than one batch of each to dollop on those incredible, juicy, local strawberries. 5. Finally, we'll have to find some red, white and blue bunting for the front of the house--what's a strawberry festival without a little patriotic decoration? Or maybe I'll dye my hair red for the occasion--always thought that might be fun. Red shoes? Red and white tablecloths for the big spread in the back yard, maybe they have some of those fold-out 3D strawberries we can hang in the trees... We're going to have a ball. Want to join us?
