Dear Ms. Swanson,
I'm writing to thank you for your utterly amazing "Roasted Strawberries" recipe in your Super Natural Every Day cookbook. I'm currently undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer and because my immune system is severely compromised I've been avoiding raw fruits and vegetables. When I began chemo in March, this didn't really bother me too much as I love roasted winter vegetables. But as the strawberry harvest here in Santa Cruz has been hitting the markets, this has been harder and harder for me -- particularly since my 4-year-old daughter loves eating strawberries by the handful! Your "Roasted Strawberries" recipe has been a life saver: I can enjoy the season's bounty without risking any food-born illness, and also without feeling deprived. I crave these roasted berries! I love eating them just as they are, fresh from oven. Thank you for such a simple, tasty way for me to enjoy strawberries during this challenging time!

Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice note April.
It truly made my day - I love those strawberries, and I'm so happy
you're enjoying them as well.
I used to pick strawberries as a kid near Santa Cruz at one of the U-pick farms.
I'm so glad I could share a little something positive at what must be
a terribly difficult time.
Stay strong, Heidi
