    Lemons.. Limonchello

    I have posted this recipe before. But I have had so many requests this week. The past holiday week I was the opening act/speaker  for Camp Blogaway.. It's a two day fast intensive camp on blogging and writing. I spoke about cookbooks with my publicist Trina Kay. Saturday night I broke out the two bottles of "chello" Cara Cara Orange and Lemon..  I like to use it in drinks (re: Lemon Drops, Just a little in a shot glass, etc) or as part of my Lemon Triffle.

    Here it is.. and make sure you make a double batch!

    It's Spring for Strawberries! 

    The World of Strawberries... Glace Them!

    For ten years most of you know I was the Corporate Chef for Driscoll's Berries Associates. I learned so much and was able to teach it in my classes. I attended a 3 day event in Watsonville, CA that they call " Driscoll University" From packaging of the berries to picking a flat and the judging of the product. You also learned how the berries go from field to home..

    First the long stem berry... Its called the King Berry. only one comes from the plant and its normally the first berry off of the plant. I used to think that a long stemmed berry was made up of a careful picker that would cut the berry further of the plant.

    Water damages berries! Do not wash your berries until right before you need to use them.

    For every hour berries are out of refrigeration, you loose one day of freshness. Berries will last about 8 days if they are stored correctly. I act like berries are like ice cream! Place into a single layer on a tray into your fridge.

    Here is a recipe for Glace Berries. I made them in Dayton, OH at Dorothy Lane Market. You can use these as decoration on a cake.

    Enjoy!

    Rose Meringues

    What do you do with the left-over egg whites? Here is a fast and easy recipe to make. You can make these last in your holiday baking so you can put them in the oven to dry out overnight. I made mine with rose water and light pink coloring.
