    Happy 2nd Birthday Kitchen Lit!

    I can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I started Kitchen Lit. It’s been such a bright spot in my life being able to share my love of cookbooks, cooking and baking with all of you.  Last year was a little rough in recovering from the fire and the loss of all my cookbooks. I’ve been slowly rebuilding my cookbook collection. Now I have 27 physical cookbooks and 39 digital cookbooks.

    Red, White & Blue Strawberries

    The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. I still remember being a kid and watching the fireworks in Tarpon Springs, FL from my Grandma’s house. To this day I still think those were the best fireworks I have ever seen. Lots of times we would have big family picnics or barbecues to celebrate the 4th of July. I loved all the patriotic dishes that were served.  Over the years I have made many different holiday recipes but I love making these Red, White & Blue Strawberries. They are delicious and it’s the perfect time of year for the strawberries. The dessert is very simple to make and doesn’t…
