A collection of refreshing beverages to help you cool off during the hot summer months.

 

Are you about to melt in the summer heat yet?  Even though summer just “officially” started, temps around here have been HOT, HOT, HOT for weeks now.  Over the last week or so, the thermometer in the car has shown over 100 degrees some days.  My hubby texted me a photo a few days ago with his gauge showing 109….and he was sitting in the shade.  That’s crazy hot y’all!

15 Fresh Strawberry Desserts

 

How do you take your strawberries?  Maybe you’re a purest and just pop a plain strawberry in your mouth or perhaps you add a dollop (or more in my case) of fresh whipped cream.  What about chocolate covered strawberries?  For me, white chocolate covered strawberries are the best (y’all know I love my white chocolate now).

Strawberries can be used in so many types of recipes – desserts, salads, muffins, scones, coffee cakes, breads, ice cream and much more.  Since I’ve got a big sweet tooth, I wanted to put together a collection desserts made with fresh strawberries to share with you.  Maybe you’ll find a new favorite here.  I’ve got my eye on a few, but which one do I make first?  Decisions, decisions.  Help me out.
