All Things Strawberry!

Strawberries are, hands down, my most favorite fruit. ¬†I have always loved them and am fairly certain, I always will! ūüôā

As a rule, I have never been a “cake” person, preferring instead fruit pies, shortcake, or biscuits. ¬†The lovely thing about strawberries, is that that little fruit goes great with all of the above mentioned desserts. ¬†As a young child, I would always ask for something with this little fruit for my birthday dessert. ¬†Add a huge dollop of whipped cream, and well, I was in heaven!

And with strawberry season just beginning to start, I thought I would share some strawberry recipes.

However, my most absolute, positively-favorite way to eat strawberries, is in¬†strawberry soup! ¬†Smooth, cold, creamy, sweet…. and simply delightful! ¬†
