It's summer 2016 and there are so many things to update on!  My goal is to keep a little more current on my blog and Twitter and share more cooking ideas and tips. Maybe I'll slip in a recipe here and there...

I love this time of year, as the promise of what is to come is almost as sweet and tasty as the harvest.Tomatoes, beans and herbs are all planted and the apples are starting to form on the tree. I just had my first local strawberries this summer - life is sweet. 

There are so many ways to enjoy these strawberries besides giving them a rinse and popping them in your mouth as I've been doing. I'll be making jam and putting putting some in the freezer for when they're not in season so I can enjoy them over the winter. While they're in season there will be a constant supply of fresh berries to nibble on, and add to whatever appeals. If you are looking for an extra sweet treat, one of the favourite things in this house, is to serve them on top of organic vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of good balsamic. If you haven't tried it, now is the time! Make it healthier and substitute the ice cream with a good quality Greek yogurt or Skyr - something nice and thick - with a drop or two of vanilla mixed in.
