Happy Friday everyone! If you want to play, click on the top button!

#1. bestmomma’s question. If you could copy the cooking expertise and ability of one person, who would it be?

In my dream world: Susanna Foo, a Philadelphia restauranteur. She is famous for her Chinese with French influence. I have never enjoyed fried rice again since going to her flagship restaurant several years ago, hers was so flavorful and not-greasy. But really? Rachael Ray or Robin Miller. I love how they are able to pull together flavorful meals quickly, and in Robin's case, "morph" them in to the next meal too.

#2. What’s the first red food that comes to your mind?

Strawberries. Hoping to make a strawberry-rhubarb pie this weekend.

#3. How do you eat your strawberries?

Usually in smoothies with a banana, pineapple, and some OJ to blend.

#4. Share a recipe that uses cherries.

Mmm...cherries are on sale around here and we have gone through about four pounds this week, just pitted and ready to go!

But for a real recipe, I defer to my best friend, who sent me an amazing one a few years ago. However, I can't find it right now so I'll give the super-easy one instead!

Cherry Chocolate Smoothie
1 bag frozen cherries
1 half-gallon chocolate milk (can be soy, almond, or rice)

Place both in blender (make sure cherries are still frozen). Blend to milkshake consistency. Enjoy!

That is super simple! Do you think it would be low in calories to make that smoothie with % milk?

Oh Rachel Ray - she's like nails on a chalkboard to me. Haha.
