Strawberry margarita Serves 1 This is my version of the margarita. It’s like a margarita got stilettos. 1 oz tequila blanco 1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice Splash of lemon-lime simple syrup (see recipe below) 1 C strawberries and 1 C ice Combine all ingredients together in blender and blend until smooth. This recipe is a little light on the tequila, as I have some tequila horror stories I’m still living down. Feel free to ramp it up if you’re of stronger stock.

Alice McKeehan of Elkhart, Ind., wanted help locating a recipe for making a Twinkie cake. Her friend who used to make it has died, and McKeehan cannot find her copy of the recipe. All she can really remember is that it was an easy, no-bake cake that had Hostess' Twinkies as the base layer. According to the Hostess website, the Continental Baking Co. first made Twinkies in 1930. Although Hostess briefly went out of business in 2012 amid bankruptcy and an employee strike, Twinkies are back on the shelves and have been a part of the American snack food culture for the better part of a century.

June's full moon, known as the Strawberry Moon, coincides with the ominous timing of Friday the 13th this year. The moon will be full at precisely 12:11 a.m. Friday, so essentially on Thursday night, not Friday night. But it will still shine brightly on Friday, perhaps behind some storm clouds. The "strawberry" name comes from the fact that it's strawberry season, and Algonquin tribes knew this was the time of year to gather them, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac. It is also known as the Rose Moon and the Hot Moon, according to the almanac.

Something is happening. The chemistry of the National League West race has changed and the reason just might be the return of Darryl Strawberry. The troubled outfielder who once insisted that he would not play again this season is playing up a storm in a San Francisco Giants uniform, which could spell trouble for the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers.Strawberry has had a catalytic effect on the Giants' offense, particularly this weekend in Montreal. He hit a grand slam Thursday, added a home run Friday and an RBI yesterday as the streaking Giants cooled off one of the hottest teams and extended their winning streak to eight games.

The San Francisco Giants apparently are in a gambling mood, now that they find themselves two months into the season and still unable to assert themselves in the soft NL West. General manager Bob Quinn confirmed on Thursday that the club is investigating the possibility of signing troubled outfielder Darryl Strawberry to replace Willie McGee, who has been lost for the season with a torn Achilles' tendon. Who knows whether the addition of Strawberry would help put the Giants over the top, but wouldn't it be ironic if he turned out to be the only member of the Los Angeles Dodgers spring roster to make the playoffs?

On the first day of pick-your-own season at Gorman Farm, parking was at a premium. The lot quickly filled, forcing customers to park along the 1,000-foot gravel driveway and spill out onto the shoulders of Gorman Road, just a mile or so from Interstate 95. The object of everyone's desire: plump, sweet strawberries. By the third morning of opening weekend, owner Dave Liker was choreographing the heavy foot traffic on his 58-acre produce farm in North Laurel. He asked his wife and co-owner, Lydia, to switch signs to direct visitors to another field.

Donna St. George reports in The Washington Post that the Montgomery County Public Schools have decided to address a serious hindrance to the education of students in that county: strawberry milk. In a move that seems to defy logic, the county has decided to take away strawberry milk:  Come January, school cafeterias in Montgomery County will be missing the pinkest offering of the lunch line. Strawberry-flavored milk is on its way out. St. George reports: "The drink is not as popular as chocolate milk and not as nutritious as plain milk, officials say. So at a time of growing concern about healthy foods for children, the pink milk has lost its place on refrigerated shelves in Maryland's largest school system.

Alexander's Tavern in Fells Point has some primo outdoor seating alongside the Broadway market, a great spot to enjoy an icy cold beverage of any variety. While maybe a Bourbon served neat might not make sense when it's 100 degrees out and climbing, we're in the need for something a bit smoother - something fruity, something freshly squeezed. Ah yes, the time-tested crush is the only thing that will do. And while you're at it, try something new and different in the form of Alexander's Strawberry Shortcake Crush.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Right around the time major league teams first began taking notice of a talented young outfielder playing at Crenshaw High in South Central Los Angeles, a harsh reality check came for Trayvon Robinson. The Orioles outfielder was in the 10th grade when his mailbox started to fill with questionnaires from big league clubs, inspiring hope in a place where young men are far more likely to become gang members than major league baseball players. Then, one day, shots rang out from outside his family's housing complex.

Talks supposedly have centered on outfielder Kevin McReynolds and a couple of other Royals players.The Royals could use Strawberry as a designated hitter to replace the retired George Brett, or as a left fielder, replacing McReynolds, who has fallen out of favor with Royals management after batting .245 last season with 11 home runs and 42 RBIs.

SEEING DARRYL Strawberry swing a baseball bat is an exhilarating experience. Hit or miss, it's a majestic moment when he extends his forearms, allows the wrists to pronate and completes the follow-through.Take a picture and preserve it for posterity. This is the personification of precision, power and, certainly for Strawberry, new heights of prosperity.There's no heresy involved when it's said flat-out he's the smoothest, easiest-to-watch swinger since the classic stylist, Ted Williams. And, to this point, he has only scratched the surface, offering a mere tease as to what he's truly capable of doing.
