What do you do with 18 pounds of strawberries? Try out some tasty new strawberry shortcake and strawberry drink recipes! :) We’ve been making all sorts of tasty strawberry treats this week. The results of two of our favorites from Food & Wine are shown below.
STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE PIE
Liz and I are huge strawberry shortcake fans. Normally we pull out the recipe from Liz’s grandmother but with 18 pounds of strawberries we had to try something new. This Strawberry Shortcake Pie recipe from Food and Wine was the perfect choice. Plus we learned how to make our own whipped cream, which is surprisingly much easier than you might expect. Check out the full recipe here and then enjoy a few photos from our creation below.
STRAWBERRY REDHEAD IN BED DRINK RECIPE
Tasty beverages in bed are definitely the way to go. Especially if the drink is part of a tasty breakfast in bed with someone you love! So when we saw a strawberry drink recipe with “In Bed” in the title, we had to give it a try. The results were the perfect summer brunch drink to replace the traditional Mimosa or Bloody Mary. Just blend up a few strawberries, add vodka and a splash of white wine for a refreshing treat. Check out the full recipe we used from Food and Wine here.
Happy first day of Summer and have an AMAZING Weekend!!!
