I love strawberries. I love these new recipes. I have a party to go to this July. I’ll be using a few of you’re recipes. I pick my own in season and freeze. But if I can’t get fresh, I have to buy. They may be costly in the colder months, There’s Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season and who doesn’t love Strawberries and champagne and light and dark chocolate drizzled on fresh strawberries. I even make my strawberry log filled with strawberries; whipped cream and cream cheese. I also make a strawberry flan if time permits. I wonder if thats why I get invited to all these parties. I apparently have a title. I’m Queen of deserts. Valentine’s is my favorite. Instead of flowers, I make long stemed floral fruit bouquets. Strawberry cake with sliced strawberries and whipped cream cake with a chocolate glazed icing, its messy to make. I made it forst with Strawberry flavored bailey’s, but that’s hard to find. And rearly available, so I try to find some strawberry liqueur or liquor with strawberry flavour. If I can’t find none I cook the strawberries add a bit of Grand Marnier or white Bacardi rum and the thinkened strawberry sauce with strawberry flavouring. They seem to like my cales with alcohol. But love your recipes. I’ve also made a strawberry Meringue pie with my strawberry sauce and sliced strawberries in the pie. People think they’re getting my lemon meringue pie until we cut into it. Then they think they’re getting my blood orange meringue pie until they see the strawberry quarters. Looking forward to this new batch of recipes. And Thank you so very much. God Bless you all
