Praise Mother Nature, strawberry season is almost upon us! This weekend I harvested the very first strawberries from my little strawberry patch and they were delicious. In a few weeks, Ontario strawberries will start rolling in full force and I am so excited.

There is nothing like a summer strawberry!

I got into the swing of things for this edition of Magazine Mondays with some organic strawberries from California (I know, I know, not local but I’m only human and can only resist for so long!).

I had my eye on this gorgeous recipe from the June 2007 issue of Bon Appétit: Puffed Pancake with Strawberries by the brillian Lori Longbotham.


I am not even ashamed to admit that I had this for dinner! I had been planning to make it for breakfast but throughout the day all I could think of was a golden puffy pancake piled high with strawberries. I added a dollop of mascarpone and a nice a generous amount of maple syrup.


Delicious all around!

For those of you that don’t know, Magazine Mondays is about getting at that pile of magazines and recipe clippings that we all have lying around. Here’s who joined me for this week’s edition of Magazine Mondays:

Lynn of Les Cuilleres made Morrocan Date Bonbons from the March 2011 issue of Food & Wine.

Jan from Kitchen Heals Souls made a Rhubarb and Raspberry Upside-Down Cake from a recent edition of The New York Times.

Danielle from Eating the Screen made Mango Coconut Sherbet from the June 2011 issue of Cooking Light.

Janie from Panini Girl made Ragu’ Bolognese from Gourmet.

Thanks to everyone who joined me! And remember, to participate in Magazine Mondays all you have to do is send me the link to a post on your blog featuring a magazine recipe.

Have a great week, everyone!
