I am buying pounds and pounds of fresh berries every time I go to the grocery store and I’m putting them in everything I eat. I can’t get enough. I just want to bake ALL THE THINGS with berries.
I decided to make these Meyer Lemon Strawberry Shortcakes because I wanted something to pair with my favorite Gloria Ferrer wine.
Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards is Carneros’ original sparkling wine house, owned and founded by the Ferrer family of Spain. The winery opened in 1986 in the breezy, now-famous region in southernmost Sonoma County. Their wines have earned over 400 gold medals and 50 90+ scores in the last 5 years.
My personal favorite Gloria Ferrer wine is the Chardonnay. It’s aged for 9 months in French oak barrels to intense complexity. It has notes of peach, pear, pineapple, and meyer lemon, as well as the delicious toasty oak note.
I thought the bright citrus flavor of the Chardonnay would be perfect with these shortcakes!
If you haven’t baked with meyer lemons yet, you’re definitely missing out! They’re a bit sweeter than regular lemons, a little bit like an orange. I actually caught my 4 year old eating one the other day and couldn’t convince him that it wasn’t an orange!
So the shortcakes themselves have the meyer lemon zest inside and then they are topped with sweetened strawberries! And then you put a big dollop of meyer lemon whipped cream on top to make them extra delicious!
I loved the meyer lemon twist on a classic and they really did pair wonderfully with the Gloria Ferrer Chardonnay.
Make sure you check out the Gloria Ferrer website to find out more about the winery and the other wines they offer!

Can we agree that Easter is the best holiday for candy?
I can’t get enough of the egg-shaped, pastel colored candy right now! I’m especially in love with the Easter makeover Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Minis got – cute blue and gold foil packaging. And individually wrapped so they’re perfect for your candy jar or for filling plastic eggs!
There are also new Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups Smooth & Crunchy Eggs which are the perfect combo of milk chocolate, creamy peanut butter, and crunchy Butterfinger bits.
And you can feel good about enjoying these two new treats because they are both made with no artificial colors or flavors!

Happy almost Friday!
Let’s continue our Easter countdown!
I really love Easter. I never list it when talking about my fave holidays (because people always ask what my favorite holidays are…) but every year I go Easter crazy.
I definitely think it has the best candy, the cutest decorations, and, of course, the best food.
I love a big Easter dinner with ham and mashed potatoes and… okay, I really just care about the ham and mashed potatoes.
I thought I would share a fun way to change up your leftover ham sandwich game today!
I used the most epic ham ever for these sandwiches. Oh, you thought all hams were created equal?
You are wrong.
