5 Things to Make with Fresh Strawberries

I just love berry season and am so thankful I live in a part of the country with an abundance of berries: blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, black raspberries, boysenberries, marionberries, logan berries and of course, strawberries! Whew. This week, I think we are going to go pick some raspberries. Until then, here's a recap of the yummy, fresh strawberry recipes I made using our 17 pound haul of the pretty red berries.

I didn't make jam because my Grammy beat me to it, which means the whole family had plenty for the rest of the year. I did want to try the cream cheese stuffed strawberries I see all over blog land. Or the patriotic, red, white and blue strawberries (dipped in white chocolate then dipped in blue sprinkles).

This past weekend was the Oregon Berry Festival in Portland. I so wish I would have been able to go. However, this weekend was jam packed with a family reunion (6 hours driving round trip) and wedding of a long time friend. Hopefully next year!


  1. 17 lbs, wow! So funny that you posted on strawberries today, I posted on strawberry jam today :). Thanks for checking me out, your blog is beautiful. Another funny thing is that I'm Oregon bound this weekend :). I'm looking forward to following what your up to via your blog. (Oh! And FYI, in case you care, you are a "no-reply" blogger so people can't just email back responses to your comments. If you want people to be able to do that I have instructions on how to change that on my comment section.)

  2. Yummy!!! Thanks for visiting me & your kind comments! I'm your newest follower!
    Hope your day is spectacular!

  3. Mmm! I think the second one sounds the best. But then again anything with cream cheese is delicious. I would love for you to stop by DIY Home Sweet Home today and link up your strawberry recipes and any other projects you would like to share. Happy Monday!!
