There is nothing to beat a fresh blueberry pie. It doesn't need much: sugar, a bit of cornstarch to thicken all the nice juices and cinnamon. It's perfect with fresh berries, but still mighty fine with frozen ones.
In this version of the classic Spanish dish, chicken, chorizo sausage, and shrimp combine with rice simmered in broth and flavored with saffron threads, garlic, onions, red pepper flakes, paprika, and bay leaf.
The dressing in this spinach and strawberry salad is fabulous. It begins with vinegar and olive oil and goes on from there with sugar, bits of onion, Worcestershire, sesame seeds, paprika, and poppy seeds. It 's chilled before serving so all of the flavors mingle nicely.
