Ingredient Spotlight: Strawberries

Tis the season for delicious, ripe strawberries! We are so happy these juicy berries are back in season and can’t wait to hit the fields to pick our own. Delicious on their own, mixed with yogurt in the morning or as a topping on desserts, we just can’t get enough.

A quick and tasty dessert recipe we’ve been enjoying lately are these Strawberry Apple Rhubarb Dessert Quesadillas. Freshly sliced strawberries top a buttery tortilla with a cream cheese and jam filling that is delectable.
