    I don’t enjoy strawberries in anything as much as I enjoy just eating them freshly picked. I love fresh strawberries!

    A summertime standby is a strawberry pie. Bright fresh berries with a quick glaze and a dollop of freshly whipped cream. Yummy!!

    If they actually last long enough to make anything with them before they are all eaten I love a good strawberry banana smoothie!

  • 5

    When I was a tiny kid I couldn’t eat big chunks of strawberries so my mother used to mix them with sugar and milk. I still L O V E that mix – about 40 years later! To me it tastes true summertime…

    laura says:

    I have a tie…I love to pick strawberries and to simply cut them up in my cereal AND I love freshly-picked strawberries cut up and served on top of angel food cake drizzled with melted dark chocolate. Thanks for inspiring more creativity this month, Papertrey crew. Thanks also for the very generous chances to win throughout the countdown. You all are the best!

  • 12
    Sherrie M. says:

    Macerated strawberries with fresh whipped cream. Cut up the strawberries into a bowl with two tablespoons (or so) of balsamic vinegar and a two tablespoons (or so) of sugar, mix it up and let sit for a bit. Serve atop fresh whipped cream. Sounds weird to some but DELISH!

  • 13
    Cassandra says:

    I have strawberries everyday for breakfast with yoghurt, but. I ADORE real strawberry jam, full of whole fruit on toast. If I was in England I would want them straight from the plant.

  • 14

  • 17
    Victoria h says:

    For a quick dessert, I buy the small pavlova bases (m&s) whip double cream to add on top and then arrange the strawberries on top artistically! Goes well with my favourite summer drink :pimms and lemonade with chopped strawberries and mint.

  • 18

  • 22
    Jennifer K says:

    I love strawberries so much. I don’t know if I could pick just one thing I like to make – there’s strawberry fluff (made w/ tapioca and cool whip et al.), there’s strawberry shortcake, and of course strawberries dipped in chocolate (white chocolate w/ sprinkles is always fun!).

  • 23

    Warm sun kissed strawberries as you pick them on a warm June morning. Love them!!!!

  • 24
    Diane Macedo says:

    My mother in law gave a wonderful lady finger cream cheese cake recipe with strawberries and pineapple in the middle,cream cheese mixture on top of that and more strawberries on top. So delicious! Better than ice cream. How about strawberries and rhubarb? Yummy. Mouth watering yet? Too tired to fuss? Strawberries and whipped cream, always a winner. Enjoy!!

  • 25
    Keri H says:

    My favorite thing to make with strawberries has to be strawberry – rhubarb pie topped with vanilla ice cream. It’s the perfect combination of tart and sweet.

    4 ounces frozen (or fresh) strawberries, thawed, drained, and divided

  • 37

  • 40
    Karen says:

    The Rochester Junior League Cookbook has a recipe for a molded salad made with strawberries and walnuts. The middle layer is a sour cream layer, and the combination is to die for! It’s a family favorite.

  • 41
    Ketha says:

    Funny that you asked. I just made my favorite “dessert” from a recipe an old French war bride shared with me years ago. It has jello,cream cheese, sour cream, bananas, crushed pineapple and pecans. It screams “SUMMER”. Love it The jello is strawberry and you add sliced, sugared strawberries to the mixture…YUM YUM YUM

  • 42
    joy says:

  • 46
    Deb Else says:

    My favorite thing to make with strawberries is my strawberry pie, topped with fresh whipped cream. That is, if I buy enough strawberries to snack on while cleaning them and make the pie.

  • 47

    Strawberry Pavlova: marshmallowy meringue, whipped cream, chopped strawberries dusted with icing sugar. Delicious πŸ™‚

  • 48
    Amanda says:

    It’s a toss up. If I’m going the healthy route, it would be a salad with spinach and strawberries. If not, then a stawberry cloud with angel food cake and lots of whipped cream. Usually, though, strawberries don’t last long enough to “make” anything around here.

  • 49
    Michele L says:

    Mine is definitely strawberry jam. I’ve been making it since I was a kid with my grandmother and aunt. Now I make it with my daughter. Growing up my grandma would have do many strawberries that one year u developed a rash on my arms from eating too many!

  • 55
    Sue Ann says:

    Daiquiris, homemade jam, chocolate covered strawberries, and strawberries filled with cream cheese filling. I also have a YUMMY Strawberry-Almond Cream Tart maybe we should start a thread on the MB for all these strawberry treats!!!!

  • 56
    Gwen says:

    Strawberry jam! Our family started a tradition back when the boys were small (now 15 & 20). We would all be in the patch picking berries for jam and taste testing! At home, I’d hull the berries, our boys would help, the older measuring the 7 cups of sugar and the younger one standing on a stool would keep count of the cups of sugar and berries! Dad manned the hot water baths & filling the jars. We’d have jam for the year and to share as gifts! Strawberries are very special in our home!

  • 57
    KateT says:

    My favorite is my husband’s grandmother’s strawberry shortcake. The shortcake is not really cake at all, but more of a pie crust with strawberries and a simple powdered sugar glaze on top. Yum!

    Donna says:

    Always needing to eat healthier, I make a strawberry shake for myself a few times a week. One cup of lowfat milk, 2 heaping tablespoons of vanilla yogurt, a couple of slices of banana and lots of frozen strawberries (a good way to salvage those berries that are starting to look unappetizing. My kids need a little honey or sugar in the mix but for me it is thick and delicious and healthy.

  • 87
    DeLisa says:

    I love to make trifles with strawberries. Just bake a yellow or white cake and allow to cool. You can you vanilla or my new fave, cheesecake pudding. You also want a container or 2 of cool whip. To make the strawberries a bit saucy, add some sugar to make them a little syrup-y. Cut the cake and layer all ingrdients in a bowl. It is best to sit overnight. There are no exact measurements, everything is to taste. YUMMY!!!!!!!!

  • 88

    My favorite strawberry recipe is for a strawberry pie that my mom made for every get together in the summer. It was strawberries, wild strawberry Jello, a little cornstarch, sugar and water. You would arrange the strawberries in a graham cracker crust. Combine the other ingredients and bring just to a boil then pour over the strawberries. Let it set up for a few hours and serve with fresh whipped cream. It is heavenly!!!

    MMMM… visions of my mom’s Strawberries and Cream are making me hungry right now. It’s the simplest thing… just mashed up strawberries, sour cream (or greek yogi now) and some sugar. So simple, so good, and such a great treat memory from when I was a kid.

    I grew up in a part of Africa where strawberries were rare. The first strawberry I can ever remember being offered I traded away for a piece of candy. Needless to say, I’m not that big a fan of strawberries unless, of course, they are covered in chocolate. πŸ™‚

  • 137
    Cindy Coutts says:

    I’m changing from a western diet and medicine thoughts to retraining my brain to an eastern diet and medicine, as well as 100% organic food with zero pesticides, and I do mean zero. Organic strawberries or ones that you grow are so much more sweeter than you can imagine so no sugar is needed. I just slice them up and arrange them on a pretty plate, get out the holiday silverware, and treat myself that way. I feel great afterwards! It’s a very fun and fresh treat.

    My kids who are in their late teens and getting ready to go off to college, however, aren’t on board with me but it’s easy enough to “fool” them. I bake my own angel food cake with organic flour and ingredients, put the strawberries into a blender and they still have a fun desert that’s healthy and organic. I just leave out the carbs since I’m detoxifying. I know that’s probably more than you wanted to hear but eastern medicine and organic lifestyle is the best!

    Good luck everybody and thank you for your generous prize Nichole. Very exciting release this time around – but what release isn’t exciting?!

    Beside just eating fresh strawberries which I love, I make a spinach salad with strawberries with a poppy seed dressing.

Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits.

    Lynne Phelps says:

    Strawberry Shortcake. I am diabetic, so instead of sugaring the berries to make juice, I pour a little diet ginger ale over the berries with a couple packs of Splenda. Lots of juice to soak the sugar-free wedge of angel food cake underneath! Then some fat-free Redi-Whip and I feel like I’ve really gotten away with something!!!!

    My 8 year old LOVES to grow strawberries (blueberries, tomatoes, apples, & squash too). Besides giving them away to neighbors and feeding the squirrels and birds, we enjoy making Strawberry Smoothies. One of our favorites (and easiest) includes these ingredients:

    8 strawberries, hulled
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup plain yogurt
    3 tablespoons white sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    6 cubes ice, crushed

    Sometimes we add blueberries or bananas in too.

    When I was first married, my inlaws were coming to visit for the first time and I wanted to make something special for dessert. I saw a recipe in a magazine for an Italian Strawberry tart. It has a very simple but delicious butter crust with lemon zest. You assemble the strawberries with the points up and then glaze it with apricot jam. It is so simple yet so amazing – with some homemade vanilla ice cream – heaven. And needless to say it was a huge hit and I’m still making it today.

  • 167

    I love the strawberry set and can’t wait to make my baby’s 1 year birthday invitations. “Our Berry Special Baby is turning 1”

    Sammie says:

    My favorite is a strawberry-pretzel dessert. I use this recipe from Paula Dean

    2 cups crushed pretzels
    3/4 cup melted butter
    3 tablespoons sugar, plus 3/4 cup sugar
    1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
    1 (8-ounce) container whipped topping
    2 (3-ounce) packages strawberry gelatin dessert mix
    2 cups boiling water
    2 (10-ounce) packages frozen strawberries
    1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple
    Whipped topping or whipped cream, to garnish

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

    For the crust, mix the pretzels, butter, and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Press this mixture into a 9 by 13-inch pan and bake for 7 minutes. Set aside and allow to cool.

    In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese and 3/4 cup of sugar. Fold in the whipped topping, and spread over the cooled crust. Refrigerate until well chilled.

    In a small bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water, and allow to cool slightly. Add the strawberries and pineapple, and pour over the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate until serving time. Serve with whipped topping or whipped cream.

    I love strawberries with just a little splenda sprinkled on them, but I also make a dessert that has layers of crushed vanilla wafers, vanilla pudding that has been combined with sweetened condensed milk and cool whip, and sliced strawberries. Its yummy and looks pretty in a glass bowl. Also, Pioneer woman has a strawberry shortcake cake in her her cookbook that looks awesome!

    Easy answer: Strawberry Glace Pie! It’s been in the Betty Crocker cookbook for years.
    1. Make and bake a single piecrust.
    2. Soften a small package of cream cheese and spread over cooled crust.
    3. Slice lots of fresh strawberries, reserving some to make a glace: sugar, water, cornstarch, some smashed berries.
    4. Fill piecrust with fresh berries, and pour glace over.
    5. Chill and serve with whipped cream.

    There are only two things I like when it comes to strawberries and these are
    1. Cut in slices and put on Dutch crispbakes with a little bit of sugar.
    2. Strawberries topped with mascarpone in which you stir some yoghurt and some vanilla suger (so much nicer than cream).

    Oh goodness… why do you torture us by making us pick!! I love them straight off the vine, in my cereal, with whipped cream… but:

    Once upon a time when my husband proposed to me he made a sort of “Alice in Wonderland” theme. A Godiva chocolate dipped strawberry with a little sign was where Alice would have eaten the little cake… so, I HAVE to say chocolate dipped!

    I just hosted a bridal shower for my sister that was strawberry themed. I filled strawberry baskets with gifts for each of the guests. (Tiny strawberry scented candles, handmade strawberry boxes filled with flavored jelly beans & a “garden sign” that said “You’re too sweet.”) I made strawberry lemonade & other treats. I just wish I would have had your strawberry stamp set sooner! It would have been the perfect touch!

    Elizabeth V. says:

    I love strawberry shortcake made with angel food cake! But…my favorite way to eat them is the way my dad taught me to do it. He would put a small pile of sugar in the middle of a plate and then ring the plate with fresh strawberrys, dipping the strawberries in the sugar before eating them. Do they need sugar? Of course not! I had long ago stopped eating them that way but then he taught my kids to do it. I love the memory of him teaching my kids to eat them that way…grandpa spoiling at its best!! Thanks for offering the great prize!

    My favorite use of strawberries isn’t much of a ‘recipe’ but it is nummy and always well received. I just clean and halve a carton of strawberries and one of blueberries, add sugar and let set overnight. I bake an angel food cake and thaw the cool whip! Done! Since my birthday is on the fourth of July and the Senior Center, where I take this several times a summer, honors veterans–it is totally fitting with its beautiful patriotic look. Thanks for another great reveal–love it ALL!

My daughter loves what she calls the Strawberry delux. she only drinks water (her choice she is 8) but she loved to have strawberry cut up in her water with on slit on the side. I have a pic of her eating strawberrys hot from the sun and just picked from our garden. She would go from the pool to the garden just to eat them. She also loved them cut up on her pancakes. by and see.http://jess-sliceingstampingineyecandyland.blogspot.com/2011/06/strawberry-heaven.html

    Susan says:

    I have a great recipe for strawberry tarts. You make your tart shell out of rice krispie cake. A little finicky but worth the trouble. Then use either fresh straberries that have been sprinkled with sugar (to make a little juice) or frozen strawberries and reserve the juice. Make a strawberry jello and only add the hot water to dissolve. Then add half of the cold water but augment with your berry juice. let set partially so it is not runny then spoon strawberries and jello into your krispie cups. Let set fully and top with whipped cream and a fresh berry slice. Your family will gobble them up!

    Strawberry pie – just cut strawberries and add strawberry Danish Desert. What’s Danish Desert you ask? I very pleasing pudding/pie filling that you make similar to jello. And, it doesn’t have that bite to it that the already made pie filling in the bags at the store do. If I’m being ambitious, then I make my own crust. If not, I just put it in a bowl and consume more than the food pyramid experts would approve of πŸ™‚

    Ann says:

    The tiny alpine strawberries I have in the garden always get eaten just as they are but I always buy up supermarket punnets when they are knocked down in price to make Freezer Strawberry Jam. Its so simple – no boiling or judging setting points.

    All you do is crush about 2 pounds (900 gms) strawberries in a non-metallic bowl with a wooden spoon or masher. Stir in 1 pound of jam/preserving sugar then cover and place in an oven preheated to its lowest setting until the strawberries are warm but not hot. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for an hour, stirring occasionally until the sugar has disolved. After that stir in the juice of one lemon and pack into small freezer-proof containers, leaving plenty of room for the jam to expand on freezing. Seal the containers and leave to stand for 6 hours at room temperature, then refrigerate for 24-48 hours until jellied. After this store in the freezer.

    Really its more like a delicious strawberry sauce than a jam and we love it over ice cream or stirred into yogurt – a real taste of summer in the dark days of winter.

    My favorite summer strawberry treat is to eat them on top of a good natural vanilla bean ice cream with a little chocolate drizzle. Mmmm. We bought an ice cream maker recently and I can’t wait to eat those berries with some homemade ice cream … I’m sure it will be pure heaven.

    Lola G. says:

    My favorite thing with strawberries is just a memory most of the time. The summer following my junior year of high school, I spent a month in England as an exchange student. Almost any place you went (including the pubs, as the legal drinking age was 16), you could get a bowl of fresh strawberries smothered in fresh clotted cream. I was in heaven.

    Once every couple of years I get a beautiful little bottle of imported clotted cream from some overpriced gourmet shop and pair it with some beautiful strawberries. I enjoy it, but it never tastes the same as what I remember.

    My favorite thing to make with strawberries is… cards! I have been horribly allergic to them since I was 28. Now I can’t even be in the same room with them and my lips start to swell and I start to wheeze. Before my allergy, I would have to say my favorite way to eat strawberries was fresh and sweet. Then it would have to be Strawberry Rhubarb pie. Mmmmm, yum. I still dream of being able to eat strawberries again, sigh

    my favorite strawberry dessert is a trifle made with strawberries, angel food cake, and loads of cool whip. slice strawberries, tear angel food cake into pieces, and layer with cool whip (into a trifle bowl) until all ingredients are used up. it is best when chilled overnight, but can be eaten immediately — delicious!

    I just love strawberries so it’s hard to narrow it down to one, but I guess I would have to say freezer strawberry jam because we can enjoy that all year. Somehow, it tastes even better when there is tons of snow on the ground and we are eating strawberry jam filled with strawberries that we picked ourselves. I use the recipe on the Sure-Jell box – turns out great every year!

  • 470
    Helen says:

    My favorite thing to make with strawberries is a 3 layer chocolate cake with strawberry filling! Yum! I just make a regular chocolate cake but divide the batter into 3 8″ cake pans and bake for a little less than the recipe requires. Cool for 10 mins before removing cakes from pans and placing on wire racks.
    The filling between the cakes is made from strawberries. Actually it’s supposed to be raspberries, but I don’t like them! This recipe is from Taste of Home.

    Filling for Strawberry and Chocolate cake:
    (original recipe is called Chocolate Raspberry Torte Recipe)

    3 oz cream cheese, softened
    3/4 cup cold milk
    1 pkg (small) instant vanilla pudding
    1 8 oz carton whipped topping, thawed
    2 cups chopped strawberries
    approx 4 large strawberries for the top
    confectioner’s sugar

    In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Combine milk and pudding mix; beat into cream cheese until smooth. Fold in whipped topping and strawberries. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread with half of the filling. Repeat layers. Top with remaining cake. I like to slice the large strawberries into a fan shape (without slicing all the way through the strawberry) and place them on top of the cake. Dust with confectioners’ sugar.
    *I have used light and low fat ingredients without a problem.

    Pre-made reduced fat graham cracker crust

    Mix water, Jello and pudding in saucepan. Stirring constantly boil for 1 minute; cool. Pour over fresh strawberries. The berries could be in a pie crust, graham cracker crust or a cake pan lined with graham crackers. If using a 9 x 13 inch cake pan, the recipe would have to be doubled. For graham cracker crust, use light butter and equal top with lite Cool Whip. Serves 4.

    4 cups of Rhubarb (cut in 1/2 inch pieces)
    1 large container of frozen strawberries or 2 cups of fresh strawberries slices
    2 cups of sugar
    1 tablespoon of cinnamon
    1/3 cup tapioca
    mix ingredients and add to either homemade pie crusts or prebought pie crusts!! Either way this pie is DELICIOUS!! =)
    Place in oven at 350 for 20 minutes with tin foil around the crust edge, remove foil after 20 min. ans bake for another 20 min. or until light brown on top crust!! Trust me if you have NEVER tried Rhubard this is the BEST PIE TO TRY!! I added the apples to the recipe a couple years ago because I have some picky eaters, they LOVE this pie and I know it is because of the apples!!

    Lisa Harris says:

    My absolute favourite thing to make with strawberries is freezer jam. For anyone unfamiliar with it, you make it with a packaged mix, half the amount of sugar of uncooked jam and you don’t cook it. This also means no sterilizing any jars once they’re filled. A huge perk! The jam is preserved in the freezing process and keeps its wonderful fresh taste. There is nothing better than enjoying that bright, beautiful, fresh strawberry jam taste in mid-winter. This month’s releases have made me anxious for strawberry season to arrive – it’s one of the best times of the year and I think everyone enjoys projects that evoke memories of strawberry season.

    Such an amazing release as always! Love these projects you have posted today too πŸ™‚ I LOVE strawberries and I am more than happy to just wash and eat them, but if I am going to make something with them, my favorite thing is fruit salsa.

    i cant see my last comment

  • 508

    The reason I double the recipe is because while I am making a pie and already have everything out I find it is SO EASY to make another one and then freeze it after I have the piecrust ontop. I wrap it in freezer plastic then place it in a freezer safe pie container!! That way if I need a PIE FAST for an event or special occasion and don’t have the time to make one homemade I have one already to go into the oven in the freezer!! You can keep the pie for up to 3-4 months as long as it is wrapped correctly!! =)
    I hope you’ll give the recipe a TRY!! =)

    Didn’t have to think a second on this one. My kids always want a particular birthday cake that I made for them by accident one year. I tried poking holes in a strawberry cake and pouring blended strawberry down the holes. It was a murky, sticky mess, but they loved it and even though they are all grown up, still ask for that disgusting mess every year on their birthdays. Not my favorite, but then again it is because of the great memories.

    Lani says:

    To be truthful, a fresh strawberry picked from the vine and popped into my mouth is the berry best. Practically speaking, one of my favorite recipes is to throw 1/2 cup plain yogurt, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 banana, 1/2 a dozen strawberries, and 1/2 a cup of ice into the blender on high and whirl until smooth. Pour into a tall glass with a sprig of mint. Makes a refreshing and nutritious bit of heaven for the palate.

    I am looking forward to trying a new recipe with strawberries to make homemade poptarts. It combines a basic pie crust with a homemade strawberry filling that would be wonderful when the berries are fresh. Thanks for the chance to win!

    bethann d says:

    love fresh strawberry pie, not w rhubarb, not cooked but fresh juicy strawberries in a lovely shimmering glaze nestled in a tender crust.yummo. sometimes it has a creamy bottom layer which makes it even better. the next best thing is fresh berries just picked and eaten in the garden.

    Robin says:

    My friend from college gave me a lovely recipe for strawberry tea breads, which includes pecans and fresh berries. I love making it into small loaves and gifting them. Everyone loves how moist the cake is, most likely from the sour cream in the batter. Looking forward to ordering this evening…

    Marcie Rhys says:

    Strawberries are so cheerful that anything in strawberry fabric is perfect. (I’ve already been dreaming of the fabric I will stamp your berries on, as well as paper.) You can’t beat a cute strawberry apron with small white eyelet trim, or napkins with wide white eyelet borders. The same goes for kitchen curtains, in a black and white vintage look kitchen! Strawberries; Is there anything they can’t do?!

    Debbie says:

    I absolutely love making fresh strawberry lemonade when strawberries are in season… or fresh strawberry ice cream with nice sized pieces of fresh strawberries in it…this year I made a variation with goats milk instead of whole milk and it was amazing.

  • 549
    Mary B says:

    My favorite way to make strawberries would be just to slice them up, sprinkle with sugar, then pile them over a fresh buttered biscuit and serve with whipped cream. Other than that would be to eat them whole. During the months that we can’t get good, fresh, sweet berries, my family loves to eat a strawberry pretzel salad (really more like a dessert) made with frozen berries. Thanks for the chance to win this awesome gift certificate!

  • 550

    My absolute favorite thing to make with strawberries is strawberry shortcake like my Mother always made. I grew up on an IA farm with a huge strawberry patch and we picked them ad nauseum, BUT she would make huge biscuits (no sweet cake for us!) and we’d cut them in half and pile with fresh strawberries and real whipped cream — YUM!!! Great memories of working together and literally enjoying the fruits of our labor!

    One of my favorite recipes with fresh berries is a strawberry soufflΓ©, which is a frozen dessert using whipped egg whites and fresh berries. It comes out of the freezer light as a cloud. I serve it with a strawberry sauce to bring out the fresh fruit flavor even more. As always PTI, thanks for an awesome release.

    In thinking about strawberry desserts, one of the most delicious and non traditional ways I serve them is with a little sugar and balsamic vinegar. This seems like an odd combination but its wonderful! Thanks for a wonderful release PTI.

    lainey says:

    I like fresh strawberries the best, but do make strawberry pie when they are abundant. It’s pie crust, spread with a thin layer of cream cheese, then the pie is filled with fresh strawberries that are mixed with a strawberry glaze. Oh, my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

    Colleen AF says:

    My family LOVES strawberry jam…so I make about 6 batches every June…I have two daughters with 3 children each, and I provide the jam for their consumption, so they go through the jam!

    A family friend shared this recipe with me and its become an absolute favorite. Oreo cookie crust, Yummo! The filling is just a mixture of chocolate chips melted with heavy cream. And topped off with fresh strawberries. That simple and oh so delicious. If you are also nuts like me, or rather like nuts like me, then you can add a combination of your favorite nuts.

    I absolutely love strawberry shortcake so it’s my favorite thing to make. It helps that it’s my dad’s favorite dessert so I can always plan on making it for his birthday. We love strawberries so much that we have several garden boxes full of them. Hopefully we can get a bumper crop this year!

  • 583
    Sandi D says:

    My favorite strawberry recipe is very simple and according to my granddaughter, Lily, it is awesomely awesome!

    The most important part is the presentation. It must be created in a stem glass dessert bowl. All you do is alternately layer sliced strawberries and cool whip until it is above the rim! Easy, peasy . . . but so special in its presentation.

    Her other grandmother called me one day to find out why Lily said her recipe was wrong. I had given her the “recipe”, but had failed to mention the stemed glassware and that is what made it wrong according to Lily! We laughed and I gave her one of mine so she could make it just right! We still laugh about it.

  • 584
    Renae Crosby says:

    We can’t get good rhubarb where I live, but my mom used to grow it in our garden when I was growing up. She made the most amazing strawberry-rhubarb pie. The strawberries are ripening early in NC now, though, and I hope to go to a pick-your-oen farm nearby next weekend. We’ll just eat them plain or in strawberry shortcake.

Growing up I thought those were the best. Oh yeah with a big dallop of Cool Whhhip on top. yes I meant to say Cool Whhhip.
