There’s absolutely nothing like hanging out with your best friends over a couple of margaritas, a bag of chips and some homemade guacamole. It heals the soul, I’ll tell you.

Turn Frozen Strawberries into Sweet Smoothies

Frozen Strawberries

After a winter full of earth-toned root vegetables, seeing bright red strawberries with their sexy sweet perfume at the market is like seeing the light of a warm fire in the middle of a blizzard.

For me I love getting the first strawberries of the season because they are always the sweetest and most flavorful. To enjoy the seductive perfume of the season’s first berries for more than a week or two, I like to freeze them.
