Select berries that are in dry unstained containers. Stained containers may indicate oversoft berries that are not freshly picked. Mold on berries spreads quickly. Never leave a moldy berry next to a good one.
This colorful salad is a real eye-catcher, and it tastes as good as it looks. Fresh fruit is always a welcome side dish with a summer meal. The addition of oranges and grapefruit gives this salad a different twist.

This versatile sauce brings a sunny new taste to pound cake, ice cream and bread pudding. I wouldn't be without it! As a mother of two, I don't have time for long, tricky recipes - this one fits my lifestyle.

The recipe for these two loaves and the creamy strawberry spread came from my mother's collection. I added macadamia nuts to give the fruit bread a fun crunch and tropical flair. —Pat Stewart
