Broiled Oysters with Garlic Toast


We love oysters at our house. I enjoy Oysters Rockafeller, but I wanted something so much more simple. The ingredient list looks a little lengthy, but if you take the time to gather everything up first, you’ll whip right through the prep and have everything put away in time to sit and relax with your meal.

National Pick Strawberries Day – Strawberry Round Up.


Yesterday was National pick strawberries day. They aren’t really ready here in Oregon, but it won’t be long. I’ve got a few plants in my garden and they are loaded but not ripe. They are, however, ripening in their ruby goodness in other parts of the country so I thought now would be a good time for a round up!


First, here are a few strawberry facts. Did you know they are part of the rose family? Yep – and they are great sources of vitamin C, fiber, potassium, folic acid and they are fat free!! They also have anti-inflammatory properties. Wild strawberries have been a fruit source for centuries, but the big ones we see in the store were first grown in France in the late 1700s. Oh – and these gems are the only fruit with seeds on the outside!


So let’s start cooking! I’ve shared some of the strawberry recipes I have and now it’s your turn! From now until Sunday night, share with us your very best strawberry recipes. Continue reading
