    Strawberry Purée

      To enjoy making light Strawberry desserts all winter long, make raw Strawberry Purée at the peak of their harvest. It's so easy and so incredibly convenient to have frozen airtight freezer bags lined up in the freezer. One way to use Strawberry Purée is in our easy Strawberry Yogurt Mousse.

  2. Strawberry Fields Cake

    Strawberry Fields Cake

      After years of trying different recipes and never being really satisfied, I finally created the perfect mocha cake recipe for my taste buds. I use all-purpose flour since I don’t usually have cake flour on hand. I prayed that the finished cakes tasted as good as the raw batter. I think it does. It even comes out of the cake pans easily without using parchment paper.

      The Mocha Cake recipe is wonderful when Strawberries are in season too. Then, I forsake the Mocha frosting and Strawberry Topping. Once the cakes are at room temperature, slice each cake into two layers so that there are four layers. Wash, dry and slice freshly harvested Strawberries and sprinkle them with fine sugar and a splash of raspberry liqueur. After about an hour, spoon the Strawberries over the bottom layer and top with a 1/2 inch layer of whipped cream sweetened with brown sugar and vanilla paste. Assemble the remaining layers of the cake, spreading each with the macerated Strawberries and whipped cream. Top the final cake layer and cake sides with an ample frosting of whipped cream. Decorate the top with whole strawberries. Slice with a serrated bread knife. (Sometimes I freeze one of the cakes and make just a two-layer cake, saving the second cake for another time. Such restraint.)

      Spinach Pesto

        As much as we love our Favorite Basil Pesto, there are times when its flavor is a tad overpowering. That's when we turn to our new Spinach Pesto. Use it as a base for other recipes because it is really thick. To serve it with pasta, I thin it out with hot pasta water. I use it on sandwiches after I've mixed some with an equal amount of mayonnaise. I spread a thick pesto coat all over a pork tenderloin, seared it on all sides in a skillet, applied more pesto and roasted it to 145ºF perfection. Freeze it flat in airtight freezer bags: snap off chunks for impromptu use all winter. For a quick hors d'oeuvres, spread soft goat cheese in a little baking dish, top it with a thin layer of spinach pesto and heat it until bubbly and fragrant. Serve with crostini.

      Savory Watermelon Bites

        When friends surprised us with a drop-by visit one scorching late summer afternoon, I whipped up these bites to have with drinks on our terrace. Inspired by Shelburne Farms's Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad, I did my own version of classic cantelope wrapped in prosciutto. It worked.
