Summer is when berries get their spotlight, and oh, do they shine bright! Living in Oregon has really taught me to appreciate berry season in all its glory, but when it comes down to it, I absolutely adore fresh, sweet, juicy strawberries.
I’ve passed that love on down to my five girls because we can’t keep strawberries in the house for more than a couple of seconds. They are notorious for gobbling up those little red gems of joy, and I don’t blame them.
When I’m lucky enough to have a few strawberries hanging around, I enjoy them in all sorts of different recipes. They make for a fantastic addition to salads, they’re a great way to start the day, and I especially love them in a variety of different desserts.
