Summer is the time of year that so many of our favorite fruits are in season. The best part of living in California is the long growing season because even if you don’t have a garden there are plenty of local farmers markets where you can purchase fresh, organic seasonal fruits and vegetables almost all year long. It is well worth dropping in on your local farmers’ markets the prices are usually very fair, the quality amazing and there’s a large organic choice to enjoy.

Nobody wants to heat up their kitchens all summer long! Right? Right! Today’s recipes are for all things strawberries that have been catching my eye that I thought you might enjoy too!
