Strawberries Galore! A Recipe Fest

strawberriesDid you know that strawberries are not actually classified as a berry by botanists? It’s true, and I just learned this useless fact today thanks to my friend Stephanie. (She later confessed that she learned this from a Snapple lid. Ha!)

Regardless of what you consider a strawberry, prices are dropping as summer is approaching. If you are stocking up on this healthy fruit, get creative in the kitchen! They freeze well, too, so be sure to grab some freezer bags and save some to enjoy later.

I happen to adore strawberries. My favorite way to eat them? Chocolate-covered. Mmmm. What’s yours?

I have rounded up some delicious recipes using strawberries from around the blogosphere. Who knew there were so many ways to enjoy the popular berry fruit?

    Oh, I’m going to check out those recipes…I heart strawberries! I also learned all the useful information I know from Snapple lids. My parents should have saved their money on college and just bought me cases of Snapple every week. ;-)

    Oh how I wish I lived in the south these days. Just got peas/carrots/spinach/beets in the garden yesterday. We have to wait until late June for our fresh strawberries! I guess that’s the difference between Texas & Wisconsin!

  4. I did a guest post over at Inexpensively last week, sharing my Mini Strawberry Pies. It’s also a very frugal dessert, only $3.55 and it makes lots! :-)
