  4. Thank you so much for including my blackberry malt cupcakes, Kammie! It must have been a ton of work to compile all these amazing recipes– great job!!!

  5. Hands down, farm fresh strawberries are my favorite. When they are in season we literally buy pounds of them from the fruit stand and I live off of them. I add them to salads, bake with them and just eat them raw. Thanks for sharing all these great recipes! 🙂

  6. EASILY one of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh fruit available. I love strawberries, blueberries, and peaches especially. I actually rarely eat any of those fruits outside of summer, even when I can find them in the grocery store, because it just feels wrong to eat them when it’s not summer! (And they’re not as fresh, and therefore not nearly as good)

  7. Thanks for including my strawberry mascarpone tart in this round-up. What an excellent selection of recipes to be included in! 🙂

  25. These are just two of the questions that are asked of outside experts.

    Another good rule is to avoid sarcasm or other attempts at humor
    (such as poking fun at a student’s words). Employers won’t be concerned as much concerning the instutution where you earned your
    degree from, but rather the ability which you posses as the degree holder.
