One of my favorite fruits this time of year is the strawberry. There is nothing better than a sweet, juicy, delicious one in the summertime!
Even though they are so good in their natural state, sometimes your mood has you looking for something a bit different. That’s when this recipe comes in handy. It’s perfect for a romantic dinner for two, or a large group!
