I love strawberries, nothing is better than a perfectly riped one! I like to cut them up and pre-portion them in one cup servings. I put them in my freezer for my breakfast smooties all year long. I also love to simply cut them up for a snack, and it is a great way to cut your craving for a more caloric dessert!

Strawberry season marks the delicious beginning of summer and fresh food for me. I enjoy making homemade strawberry Margaritas (Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner!) with a touch of lime. Strawberry tarts with custard are wonderful. My favorite way to eat strawberries is by themselves with a big dollop of homemade sweet whipped cream. Yum!

I love strawberries, and eat them on a daily basis. I have them sliced up with my greek yogurt, I have them right out of the container. But I absolutely love them in Napoleon's with puff pastry topped with whipped cream!

Strawberries Yum! There are several new things I would love to try with Strawberries, like combing them in a toss of sugar and Cilantro for snacking or to include in a salad. Lately what I have been doing with them is including them in my spinach salad with sunflower seeds and a strawberry vinegarette dressing. My favorite would be Strawberry Shortcake. Gotta go now made myself hungry!

We eat strawberries every day. On pancakes< in cereal, in smoothies...I live with my three grandchildren, my daughter and her husband 3 years running now. We like our strawberries unadorned with sugar and carbs. They are never as sweet and good as when we can pick our own in-season.

Strawberry martinis. I would muddle those beautiful berries to a gorgeous red pulp- strain to get the little seeds out and add some really good vodka- perhaps some Grey Goose or Ketel one....pour into a beautiful sugar rimmed glass and of course add the most perfect strawberry in the bunch for garnish! Happy Mother's Day to me!! ;-)

If there were no limits to the number of strawberries in my kitchen I might finally get to eat some myself. We buy organic strawberries, and as soon as they are in the house my ten year old seems to get to eat most of them!! If there were no limits to the number in my house I wouldn't feel guilty about having some myself!

Since it's Teacher Appreciation Week it's only appropriate to share this wonderful treat with my kids teachers. My personal favorite is making strawberry pillows....phyllo dough...vanilla pudding...whip cream and most importantly strawberries. Every teacher deserves a treat and this is one worth sharing!

I would slice them, dehydrate them and then add them to granola cereal, sprouted buckwheat cereal, "banana ice cream", anywhere that needed dried fruit.

My favorite is delicious homemade strawberry ice. Simply muddle 2 cups of fresh strawberries- add to 2 cups simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar- dissolve over medium heat while stirring constantly, then allow to cool).Put in your icecream maker and VOILA! Fresh strawberry ice in less than an hour. No preservatives- you can freeze any left-overs in individual sized containers to enjoy later.So refreshing!

I would can them! I could make strawberry jam, strawberry syrup for my pancakes, and of course just freeze some to put in smoothies. I also have some rhubarb planted in my garden and I'd love to make a strawberry rhubarb pie...yum! I like to know what's in my food, and the best way to do that is to buy it fresh and unprocessed.

My day would start with fresh strawberries in my protein shake, followed by sliced strawberries on my children's french toast. Around mid-morning our craft for the day would be to make strawberry creme popsicles to be eaten after our naps. At lunch we would have sandwiches with blueberry and strawberry parfaits. After nap time we would enjoy our creme popsicles while preparing a strawberry rhubarb pie for dinner. When dad gets home we meet him at the door with a fresh strawberry margarita. After dinner we all enjoy our warm pie with strawberry ice cream. Perfect day!

I just made strawberry banana muffins today! Smoothies, strawberry shortcake with biscuits - not pound cake, dipped in chocolate, or my favorite...dipped in sour cream and then into brownulated sugar from Domino, are some of my most favorite ways to eat strawberries. When I was little, my grandmother had a huge summer fruit and vegetable garden and I used to love going to visit her and picking our own strawberries. I'm not sure many of them made it into the house, most went into our mouths!!

I love Summer and I LOVE fresh organic Strawberries! Such an amazingly healthy fruit deserves to be drenched in the best organic dark chocolate and shared with family and friends. I would also LOVE to make my mother's famous Strawberry preserves and give them to families in need, as I believe very much that all of us NEED clean, fresh, organic produce more then ever these days! I would also make some amazing pound cakes and have a strawberry shortcake party with my Kids...FUN TIMES!!! = )
