Strawberry Desserts

Strawberry season is nearly upon us and I can hardly wait to get my hands on those perfectly sweet ruby red berries and make some amazing strawberry desserts. The first couple months of summer are perfect for taking a trip to a farm with pick-your-own strawberries. It’s the perfect weekend outing with kids for frolicking through the rows of plants followed by bringing your little treasures home to make some amazing desserts (and sampling a few sweet berries along the way).
