This time of year finds us spending at least a few hours at a strawberry field picking (and eating) fresh strawberries. The California Strawberry Commission website is full of recipe ideas that I can use to make some delicious treats. I can smell the yummy shortcakes in the oven now just waiting to be smothered in whip cream and strawberries.

There is also a neat site called Stawberryville that has a cookbook, games, downloads and fun facts. Did you know that there are 200 seeds on the outside of a strawberry or that if you line up all the strawberries grown in California in a straight line that you could wrap it around the earth FIFTEEN TIMES! Head on over to learn more about the little red gems.

Yum, I think that I am off to the store! We need some ingredients for Strawberry Shortcake.

I wish it was still strawberry season here! It's so hot now, our strawberry season is more in March. I hate getting the strawberries shipped in from CA, by the time they get here they're not that good.

Who am I?
