Here is another quick and easy dessert recipe to add to your arsenal. The key ingredient is fresh strawberries, which are pretty much available nearly year-round in Southern California. They are prime for eating as the weather begins to warm in spring and summer, so now is the time to start stocking up on the big, red berries. The other ingredient you’ll need is some fresh whipped cream and chocolate sandwich cookies. Oreos are the best of course. Grab a family-size bag, and start layering!

Depending on how you look at it, Sunday is either the end or the beginning of a new week. Some people want to wrap up the seventh day with an easy meal, while others use it as a full day of preparation and cooking for the evening and rest of the week. It is always a good idea to have Sunday dinner recipes on hand that are simple and quick, in addition to a few that may require a few hours of cooking.

Dole Golden Summer Cocktail - The Duo Dishes

It’s about that time…time to share what happened during this year’s Dole Summit! Nine other bloggers convened at the Four Seasons Westlake for two and a half days of food, relaxation and a bundle of exchanged information about Dole Packaged Foods. Many people recognize Dole by products around grocery stores, but the internal team who handles canned, jarred, frozen and dried fruits are completely different than the folks who work on the fresh produce side.  We had the chance to meet and greet the Dole Packaged Foods team who answered oh so many questions, while also filling us in on the ways in which Dole wants to be part of your healthy lifestyle! Prepare yourself. This will be a long one… Continue Reading »

Irish Brown Soda Bread Dry Ingredients - The Duo Dishes

I often think about my trip to Dublin, Ireland these days. Out of all my trips over the last 4 or 5 years, I must say the Irish have proven to be the most friendly. No matter what happens during your trip to another country, if you encounter sweet people, you will always remember that. The Irish will always hold a lovely place in my heart. And so will the food of Dublin! Perhaps Dublin is not known for being a city of gourmands, but that has never been of importance to me. I search for good, hearty food that tastes good. That’s all I need. In Dublin, I found just that, so on this St. Patrick’s Day, here is a recipe for a traditional bread that stirs up fond memories of the Emerald Isle.

Dole Pineapples Can - The Duo Dishes

Cake is here! Do you want a piece? Probably. It’s nearly impossible to say no to a hunk of fluffy cake full of sweet fruit, covered with whipped cream and scattered with coconut. It is also nearly impossible to say no to an invitation to join a local Blogger Summit. Dole Packaged Foods will host several bloggers for a couple of days of hanging at the headquarters with the Dole team and learning more about the brand and its products. Accepting the opportunity happened as quickly as one would say yes to a plate of this poke cake.
