Even though it’s still in the twenties today, Spring is definitely here! This morning as I walked through Bryant Park, the ice skating pond was gone and the lawn was back in place. Lovely flowers were in bloom in various spots.
I love the Spring flowers and I also love one other thing about Spring: STRAWBERRIES!
They are so luscious and of course, healthy for you. They have a good deal of sugar, but have a low glycemic load which means they won’t make your blood sugars shoot up and then crash. A cup of strawberries has 150% of your daily requirement of Vitamin C. They also contain manganese and antioxidants.
So, today I’m going to take you to a list of 60 – SIXTY – fabulous strawberry recipes. Just click here to see them!
Also, don’t forget this is Day 2 of the Double Trouble Blog Tour! Come visit with me at the All the Fun Starts After Dark blog today and follow the rules for a chance to win some fun prizes!
It was a tough choice this Monday, but this delicious hunk has been on my mind since Terminator Salvation, where he stole the movie from another hunk, Christian Bale.
Sam has appeared in a number of movies, including Avator and the two Titans movies. Sam was born in Britain, but raised in Australia. There are so many sexy Australians you gotta wonder what’s in the water down there!

My daughter and I picked another healthy version recipe from our Pinterest boards: General Tso’s chicken. I actually cut back even more on the calories by eliminating the oil in the sauce and just relying on reducing it with a slow boil. Just one word of warning, use less red pepper if you do it this way unless you like spicy! Also, make sure to only add the red pepper toward the end of the sauce reduction to avoid the spiciness. Also, I didn’t have apricot jam, but had some orange marmalade to use. Worked out great with that and not too sweet.
The “breading” comes out fabulously crispy and tasty. I set some aside some of the chicken for my daughter to eat as nuggets during the week.
