Living in Florida has been fantastic for my taste buds!  The hot weather makes my family crave fresh fruit and veggies, and Florida delivers during every season.

Florida Farmers make it so easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year around!  Within a 5-mile radiance, there are over a dozen farmers markets held on various days of the week, and in Florida, something delicious is always in season!  My favorite is the Dunedin Downtown Market, I love the quaintness of Dunedin with the cute shops and restaurants, and this market is held in the center of town so we can shop for our weeks produce and then enjoy a morning stroll around town.

One of my family’s favorite treats is Blueberry Shortcake, it combines one of our favorite fruits and an indulgent biscuit with whip cream.
We like to make this to enjoy after Sunday dinner or for breakfast on special mornings.  The only problem I encounter with this recipe is that if I shop with my children, the blueberries never make it home.

Being new to Florida, I was used to digging through a carton and finding a few big juicy blueberries surrounded by small sour ones.  So, when I bought my first package of berries in Florida, I ate them all in less than 10 minutes and had to go back to the farm stand to get more for the kids.  Every blueberry was plump and sweet!  So now whenever I shop, I always look for the Fresh From Florida label on produce, seafood, and even wine!
