Mmmm…I’ve been eating strawberries almost every day for the past few weeks; they really are terrific this year. Food on the Food has a recipe for strawberry shortcake if you’re tired of eating strawberries out of hand. Last year, I made strawberry shortcakes using this scone recipe from Orangette.

The chilly weather we’re experiencing in the UK has me thinking of warm, savoury, hearty dishes – not perhaps conventional for July but it’s really quite cool here! One such dish is the rudely named Gramercy Balls over at Off the Broiler.

On Serious Eats, there are instructions on how to achieve a steakhouse-like crust on your steak. C’mon…rubbing butter on your steak can’t be bad!
