My Family's Favorite Strawberry Recipes


Strawberry season is in full swing here in New England.  It's one of my favorite times of the year.   We hit the fields and bring home somewhere around 15 pounds of beautiful, juicy, sweet delicious berries. These are some of my family's favorite strawberry dishes.

If you've never made homemade shortcake before, you're missing out.  I love the vanilla added to the berry mixture.


 
Either full size or as minis, these Berry Sour Cream muffins are always a hit! They're great for breakfast, or snacking.  I make them all summer long, starting with strawberries in June, then blueberries in July, and winding up with blackberries in August.


 
Strawberries aren't just for desserts!  Strawberry Salad with Mojito Vinaigrette

Another favorite is Citrus Berry Cake. It's like a shortcut version of strawberry shortcake. Great with fresh whipped cream or a dusting of powdered sugar.


 
Cool down with a delicious Strawberry Patch Frost



 
This Strawberry Pineapple Jam is always on the "to make" list.  It's so good on English muffins or homemade bread!



One of my most recent favorites is this Fresh Strawberry Salsa. I've been eating this non stop for the past few weeks. 



Looking for a sweet treat to beat the heat?  Make Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles! Nothing beats the summer heat like a cold, refreshing, fruity popsicle.



 
 
 

 



I developed a serious addiction to Homemade Frozen Strawberry Lemonade when a fast food restaurant put it on their menu.  Now I make it at home, sometimes even a spiked version to enjoy on the patio!

 

How about breakfast? These Strawberry Cream Cheese Waffles are super easy to put together! My kid loves these (and so do I!). 

Strawberry Rhubarb Ice Pops


 Streusel Strawberry Muffins

Just look at the beautiful bits of strawberry and the light and fluffy texture!  These were great by themselves but they'd also be awesome griddled with some strawberry butter.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Olive Garden Fried Lasagna

On a recent trip to Olive Garden, I tried the Lasagna Fritta.   Fried pasta and cheeses, with two fantastic sauces.    Few chain restaurant dishes stick with me, but I had a hard time getting this one out of my mind.   I decided I wanted to recreate it at home, but instead of an appetizer portion, I wanted dinner size.    It's a little fidgety, but once you get an assembly line process going, it's pretty smooth.   I used pre-shredded/grated cheeses, you are more than welcome to shred your own.   I also used store bought marinara and alfredo, but it would be over-the-top fantastic with from-scratch sauces. This was a huge hit here.   While it's not something that I'd make weekly, it was a fun way to present lasagna to my picky eater, who doesn't like a lot of red sauce.  Since there are only 3 of us, I froze the remaining fried bundles in single serve portions.   They can be heated from frozen, or defrosted in the fridge overnight.    Enjoy!   Fried Lasagna P
