I never thought of myself getting into gardening like I have, but something happened along the way (probably the horses), that has made it incredibly difficult not to love playing in the dirt. Gardening takes time and commitment. It can be life-changing and, ... Mother Nature may be one of the most unpredictable forces there is. If you don't grow your own, please support your regional food system and get to know who grows your food. Make friends with your local farmer. Its "food with a face, a name, and a place".
Now ... I would like to share with you this lovely little recipe. Because of all I said above, I hope all of you will run to your local farmer and pick some of their lovely strawberries. You will love this. Very seldom do we find a strawberry bread recipe. Enjoy!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 cups sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
2 cups strawberries, sliced (fresh or frozen)
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
Combine dry ingredients. Add eggs, oil, strawberries, and pecans. Stir just until all ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into 2 well-greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes until cake tests done. Cool in pans 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. Freezes well.
