Open-faced Strawberry Omelet/Patty's Food

When it comes to strawberries, it’s never just about eating your daily fruit.  Sweet brightly colored aromatic strawberries and all the ways we love to eat them through out their brillant season elevates these berries to a much higher level.  I find strawberries to be inspirational, whether I’m plowing through the preparation of  a massive […]

Tink, tink, tink.  I know that we are headed towards Summer when I wake up early to make coffee and hear the chirping of birds outside my kitchen window.  Only the birds don’t  all go tweet tweet, we always have a few loud ones that go tink, tink, tink which is kind of weird and […]

Could it be possible that I’ve found a new favorite dessert?  I’m talking about a large buttery shortbread cookie spread with a thick layer of homemade lemon curd that’s piled high with fresh berries and sprinkled with lavender vanilla bean sugar.  A BFF of desserts.  Yes, I found a new favorite dessert today.

Strawberry Lemon Lime Bars

Strawberry Lemon Lime Bars / Patty's Food

Jammy slices of strawberries nestled into a lemon lime filling supported by an oat-y flavored shortbread crust were a couple of good reasons why I thought it was okay to mess with one of my favorites- Classic Lemon Bars.  Plus the strawberries look pretty- all jammy on top of the lemon lime filling.  The strawberries and lemons came […]

Strawberry Lime Upside-down muffins with Lavender Sugar / Patty's Food

Fun with strawberries 101.  First thing- find sweet strawberries, I found mine at the Santa Rosa farmer’s market.  Second thing-find an excuse to take some time to yourself for strawberry recipe development (very important!)  Excuses could include, I’m sick, headache, cramps, backache etc…you get the idea.  Third thing- when everybody is out of the house […]

Strawberries and rhubarb do make a great pie filling but they also pair wonderfully in these muffins, especially with the addition of your own homemade rhubarb conserve.  Rhubarb conserve is jammy sweet with a concentrated tangy rhubarb flavor to it.   When it’s in season I can’t get enough rhubarb and one of my favorite […]

Very Berry ~4 kinds of Berries~ Napa Cabbage Salad

Very Berry Slaw / Patty's Food

I was in the mood for an easy fresh and fruity salad today.  The strawberries from San Diego at the farmer’s market this morning were calling out to me, saying both serve me with vanilla ice cream for dessert and toss me into a salad for dinner tonight.  Is this berry overload?  Impossible, the parade […]
