Community Contest: Send Us Your Best Strawberry Recipes

Ruby red, supremely sweet, and currently in season—we’re talking about strawberries, of course—summer’s favorite fruit that we never seem to tire of. That’s why we’re on the hunt for more creative recipes to make the most of them this year.

So we’re introducing our first ever recipe contest, and it starts right now! Coated in frozen yogurt, whizzed into a smoothie, or added to a salad—how do you enjoy your strawberries? Grab your aprons, gather your recipes, start cooking, and don’t forget to share your recipe with us!

Kitchen Stories

How to submit your recipe?

Send your recipes via e-mail to, including the following information:

- ingredients list

- step-by-step instructions

- an original photo of the finished dish that can be shared by us

- a brief explanation of why your dish is so special and any stories or special tips to go with it

You can submit as many recipes as you like, as long as you’ve created them yourself—an old family recipe or a significant adaptation of another recipe works perfectly fine, too, but it’s only fair to credit the original author and tell us how you’ve made it your own.

What are we looking for?

This contest is all about strawberries—make sure they’re the star of your recipe. Furthermore, we’re looking for new recipe ideas, so focus on those that you can’t already find on Kitchen Stories in order to truly stand out. While we love cake, pie, and sorbet, they’re already part of our repertoire—think outside of the box!

Head here to see our existing strawberry recipes, then surprise us with something new, yummy, and original. How about a savory dish? Or flavor combinations that will make us raise our eyebrows (and our mouths water at the same time)? Inspire us!
