Strawberries are just so darn good. Seriously, how can one fruit be so delicious in so many recipes? I make strawberry crumbles in a pinch when I need something dependable yet incredible. You have to literally pry a bowl of strawberry ice cream from my hands. I could drink strawberry lemonade like water (and sometimes I try). And of course, my absolute favorite, strawberry shortcake is the best of them all (which I made with pound cake before here).

I am a true daddy's girl. I always have been. Even now that I'm married, I never resist a big bear hug or call with my daddy about basketball. My husband accepts that I'm my father's "princess" and doesn't try to compete with that.

I had such a pleasant surprise a couple of weeks ago. I received this incredible box from Sur La Table. I was literally beaming like it was Christmas morning. It just so happens that Sur La Table is one of my absolute FAVE stores. I bought this cute heart shaped pan there and so many other goodies ranging from cookie cutters to any kitchen gadget you can think of! Let's just say that I sometimes forget to tell my husband when I have a little shopping spree there. I may even leave some purchased items in the car trunk until I can safely sneak them into the house.

I am constantly inspired by everything around me but more than anything, I am inspired by my heritage and family traditions. Pineapple upside down cake is such a classic Southern dish that was served countless times in my house. I was always so mesmerized by the creation of this dessert as a child. I would watch the cake bake in the oven not knowing the unique surprise beneath that awaited me.
