I’m obsessed with goat cheese and strawberries, which is why you’ll find both fully-stocked in our home at all times. We used to grow strawberries in our garden in Washington when I was a kid. There is nothing like a fresh, juicy, plump red strawberry plucked right out of your own backyard. Combine that delicious fresh fare with nature’s best cheese product in the form of luscious, creamy goat cheese and what do you get? Goat cheese Valentine strawberries. The most amazing little bites of deliciousness that has ever graced your tongue.

Remember the days before parenthood? When you would actually go out into the world and eat at a restaurant and see stars on the BIG screen? I always liked to seek out movie theaters with extra-decadent snacks. You know, the ones with cinnamon rolls and bon bons. Man, movie night’s changed for us in the last couple years!

I don’t just want to throw fruit or vegetables on a plate, but there’s a bit of a learning curve involved in preparing them in interesting ways without adding a lot of processed oils and gluten that I used to rely on to make my meals. This mango coconut rice is a quick and easy side dish that works with my allergen-free dietary needs right now.
