One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh fruit that you don’t have to take a second mortgage out on your house to buy! (Side note:  You know that you are getting old when you start, excitedly, talking about the price of produce). My family goes especially nuts for strawberries, I swear that we can go through a whole container in a day. These strawberry recipes are so tasty, you’ll want to create a whole meal out of scrumptious strawberry goodness!

There are so many different types of strawberry recipes here, each one better than the next. If you make one (or several!) let me know in the comments which of these strawberry recipes were a hit in your house.
