    I think our season is almost over here but I still can’t help dreaming of strawberry recipes. You’ve given me more inspiration to keep on baking with the gorgeous beauties:)

    I love strawberries in salads with some kind of balsamic dressing and blue cheese. I should have enough baby greens ready to pick for a salad from my own little garden and there is an organic berry farm a few minutes away. I am already anxious for lunch today! Your round up has me craving strawberries….and the smoothie and mixed berry bars are really jumping out at me this morning!

      strawberries, balsamic dressing and blue cheese sounds so good right now to me!

  3. Lovely! It’s so nice to have more ideas for what to make with all those strawberries this time of year. I love the look of that strawberry butter! Mmmmm….

      Super duper easy and it’s hardly a ‘recipe’…it takes about 2 seconds to stir together but it’s so good! :)

    I’m a huge fan of strawberries. I buy them every week during the summer. I’m excited about these recipes that use my favorite fruit! They all look wonderful!

  5. Rachel Cooks — May 17, 2013 at 5:05 am (#

    I want them all!!! PS: I’m probably super far behind, but I love your new logo!

    Averie, all these recipes look so good! I hade no idea it was national strawberry picking day and national strawberry cream day next week!! Wish I would have post the Strawberry Margarita Doughnuts I made next week!

    Strawberry season is the best and I have to make the sweet rolls! They have been calling my name ever since you posted them!

    • Averie Sunshine — May 17, 2013 at 5:15 am (#

      Well it’s not til next week and really, there is no wrong time for strawberry donuts! :)

  7. Liz — May 17, 2013 at 5:11 am (#

    Whoa! I can’t wait till our local berries are ripe…soon, I hope! I’d have to start with your sweet rolls and work my way through all your features!

    I love my strawberries in everything buuuut if I had to pick, it would be with my granola and milk for breakfast or in your banana bread or rolls. Most if these recipes are new to me! For the strawberry addict in me, this is a gold mine, Averie. Oh, vanilla ice cream with fresh strawberries is hard to beat:)

    • Averie Sunshine — May 17, 2013 at 12:52 pm (#

      So glad they’re new-to-you recipes! It pays to re-link and remind I guess :)

    Ohhh, days like this I wished I still lived in California! The strawberries must be huge already! Hope you get out there to pick some strawberries today or this weekend, Averie. These are a bunch of great recipes you shared! Love the look of those sweet rolls… mmm!

    • Averie Sunshine — May 17, 2013 at 12:50 pm (#

      How did I not know you used to live in CA? It must be hard to be away (I tried moving away once…I lasted 9 mos and we were back! lol)

    The Strawberry and Sprinkles Buttermilk Pancakes are a sure winner to my heart, what beauties!

    Thanks for all the great ideas for strawberries!

    I read this post as I have 5 pints of strawberries in my fridge right now. Can’t beat this week’s sale!! I put some into a smoothie this morning and am making muffins tomorrow. I can’t get enough of them! Definitely one of my favorite berries to cook and bake with. Have I ever told you how much I love those sprinkle pancakes? I’m sure I have. I would love them on my birthday next weekend!! Have a great weekend friend.

      It’s your bday next weekend? Well happy bday!!! :)

  20. Gloria @ Simply Gloria — May 17, 2013 at 11:45 am (#

    What a beautiful bunch of recipes you’ve put together! I’m still so in love with those pancakes! I love this time of year…with all the fresh strawberries to create such wonderful recipes like these!

  21. Strawberries are so amazing. And all the recipes you use them in look to die for! Growing up my mom would clean/cut strawberries, sprinkle a little sugar on top and keep them in the fridge. I used to always sneak a strawberry and roll it in more sugar. Maybe that’s where this sugar addiction started!? LOL I must, I must make the strawberry butter-it always looks so appetizing!

  22. Barbara @ Barbara Bakes — May 17, 2013 at 2:02 pm (#

    What a delicious roundup. I don’t think there’s a way to eat strawberries that I don’t like. Thanks for linking to my cheesecake.

    • Averie Sunshine — May 17, 2013 at 3:37 pm (#

      I loooove that photo shoot of your cheesecake, Barbara. I could stare at those pics all day!

    oh wow these look amazing! My all time fav is strawberry pavlova or strawberries and clotted cream – yum! x

  25. Heather @ French Press — May 17, 2013 at 4:51 pm (#
