Celebrate California Strawberries with a Strawberry Teakettle Giveaway!



I had the pleasure of meeting the folks from the California Strawberry Commission last month at Child Play Communication's Bloganthropy Awards, and I'll thrilled to be working with them to promote strawberries! My whole family loves strawberries, and we're so lucky to be living in California because we can get the sweetest, juiciest, brightest strawberries any time of the year.

There are so many delicious ways to enjoy strawberries! We cut strawberries up into our cereal, and blend them up with bananas and yogurt for a healthy smoothie. I lay them in a prebaked pie shell and pour glaze on top for a quick, yummy strawberry pie. Sometimes we eat strawberries and whipped cream for dessert. And for a decadent treat, we love strawberries dipped in chocolate! Here are few more ways we enjoy strawberries:

Strawberry frosting for The Pea's birthday cupcakes, made with fresh strawberries.


Sliced strawberries to decorate Alfie's chocolate birthday cake.



Yummy berry parfait made with yogurt, cinnamon, strawberries, and -- guess what? -- salad dressing!


For more strawberry recipes, you can visit the California Strawberry Commission's website; they even have a free iPhone app that you can download to get over 50 strawberry recipes from top food bloggers.



Win a Strawberry Tea Kettle

One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will will a 2.5 quart Copco Strawberry Tea Kettle with a plug-in harmonic whistle.
