Strawberry Iced Tea

Strawberry Iced Tea is made with sweet, fresh, strawberry simple syrup for a refreshing summer drink! Sometimes at the end of a long, excruciating grocery store trip, I reward myself on the way to the check-out lane by grabbing a frosty bottle of peach iced tea. I enjoy it as I drive home and unload the groceries, patting myself on the back for a (dreaded) job well done (or at least accomplished). On a recent trip to the grocery store, {Read More}

Strawberry Snack Cake + Five Heart Home’s 4th Blogiversary

Strawberry Snack Cake is soft, moist, and easy to make, loaded with sweet, ripe strawberries, creamy buttermilk, and a shower of powdered sugar on top!   Today’s a special day, y’all, and I’ve decided we should celebrate with sweet, simple Strawberry Snack Cake! Four years ago today, I published my very first recipe on this blog (incidentally, also a strawberry recipe), thereby launching Five Heart Home. So every year, I commemorate June 1st as Five Heart Home’s birthday…or anniversary…or “blogiversary,” {Read More}

With umpteen variations of homemade granola already on the blog, I’ve been wanting to experiment with a Nutella recipe for awhile now. Wouldn’t you know it…I finally succeeded! And even though this Nutella Strawberry Granola looks more pre-Valentine’s Day than post-Easter, I promise that it’s delicious any time of year. My 4-year-old daughter is {Read More}

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Honey Vinaigrette (AKA, Easter Salad)

Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad with Toasted Almonds & Lemon Honey Vinaigrette (AKA, Easter Salad) is a beautiful, delicious addition to any spring or summer meal! I’m of the opinion that every special holiday meal should include a gorgeous, festive, scrumptious salad loaded with seasonal ingredients. And y’all apparently agree, because my Holiday Honeycrisp Salad is one of the site’s most popular recipes from Christmas to New Year’s, and my Thanksgiving Salad gets lots of attention come November. So why shouldn’t {Read More}

Easy Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal

Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal is an easy, healthy breakfast recipe for busy mornings, topped with toasted almonds and chia seeds to make it extra tasty and wholesome! I usually try to keep make-ahead recipes on hand for quick breakfasts on busy weekday mornings — granola, granola bars, baked oatmeal, overnight oats, freezer breakfast sandwiches, mini frittatas, muffins, breakfast cookies, and the like. But the truth is that sometimes, I don’t have my act together and I’m running short on time…so {Read More}

Strawberry Poppy Seed Chicken Salad

Strawberry Poppy Seed Chicken Salad is light and fruity, with crunchy toasted pecans and a creamy, honey-kissed dressing that’s been lightened up with Greek yogurt! Spring is officially here…yippee! True to form, central Texas was already hitting the high 80s in February…and then dipped into the mid-30s last night. Our poor bluebonnets are so confused. Nevertheless — Lone Star State weather-schizophrenia aside — the arrival of spring (and Easter coming up this weekend) means that it’s time to bring on {Read More}

Mixed Berry Cream Cheese Muffins

Melt-in-your-mouth Mixed Berry Cream Cheese Muffins are bursting with your favorite juicy berries and swirled with a lightly sweet cream cheese filling. With Independence Day right around the corner, I’m in the mood to infuse my attire, my decor, and my menu with some good ol’ red, white, and blue. And when it comes to culinary endeavors, what easier way to channel those vibrant hues than with some fresh, juicy berries? A couple of weeks ago, I shared a scrumptious {Read More}

Chicken Berry Pasta Salad with Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette

Chicken Berry Pasta Salad is a sweet and savory summer dish drizzled with fresh Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette. And with its red, white, & blue color scheme, it’s the perfect recipe for 4th of July picnics, potlucks, and BBQs! Pasta salad is one of those things that I could happily eat pretty much every day through the warm weather months. I love it plain and simple. I love it loaded with veggies. I love it served from a picnic basket or {Read More}

Strawberry Pretzel Chocolate Swirl Bark

Strawberry Pretzel Chocolate Swirl Bark features smooth semi-sweet and white chocolate, salty pretzel sticks, tart strawberries, and festive sprinkles for a fun and tasty homemade candy treat! I apologize for two candy recipes in the same number of weeks, but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I apparently have chocolate on the brain. I promise that there’s a dinner recipe coming up on the roster later this week! 😉 But in the meantime, how gorgeous and yummy is this {Read More}

Whole Wheat Strawberry Muffins

Tender, wholesome, Whole Wheat Strawberry Muffins boast a burst of fresh, sweet strawberries in every bite! Around our house, we are mad for muffins!

Yup, {Read More}

Strawberry Spinach Salad with Feta Cheese, Toasted Pecans, & Blush Wine Vinaigrette

It’s hard to believe that June has already arrived!  Though spring doesn’t technically wrap up until later in the month, in my mind, it’s already summer in every way that matters…school is letting out, vacation is upon us, and here in Texas, temperatures are already cruising into the mid-90s.  I don’t know about you, but my palate changes with the seasons.  Summertime has me gravitating towards recipes that are on the lighter side, quick and easy to prepare, and raring {Read More}
