Tip: How to Freeze Berries

It’s berry season – yay!  Actually, we’re coming to the end of strawberry season (which was late this year), and tiptoeing into blueberry, blackberry, and raspberry season.  Now’s the time when the berries are ripe, and sweet, and bursting with flavor…not to mention way cheaper than any other time!  So it only makes sense to […]

Hail Mary Strawberries

Sometimes I amuse myself with food, and this is one of those times.  In honor of the big game today, I decided to get a little festive in the kitchen.  Aren’t they cute? These were pretty easy to make.  Just your basic chocolate covered strawberry to start with.  I like to use good quality semi-sweet […]
