  • Check out Hick Chick just for fun and Living Tastefully for a beautiful banana breakfast treat.
  • To satisfy your artsy needs, take a look at Robin Rosenberg’s Fine Art site. Robin passed on a strawberry life-extending tip that she learned from her mom. To extend freshness for up to 2 weeks, refrigerate your strawberries in a closed jar. I’m currently testing it out.
