Celebrate Florida's Strawberry Festival with Scrumptious Strawberry Recipes



Celebrate Florida’s Strawberry Festival with a few scrumptious strawberry recipes!

I love strawberries and so do my kids. If I was anywhere near Florida I would be making plans to attend Florida’s Strawberry Festival which starts today and runs through March, 13th. It’s no small festival, it could draw as many as 750,000 attendees. That’s a whole lot of strawberries to go around. Although the strawberry is indeed the star of the soiree, it also brings in some A name musical talent. I’m quite fond of Lady Antebellum who will be on the musical bill. But since I can’t be there, I’ll play my “American Honey” at home and whip up some of my favorite scrumptious strawberry treats to celebrate in spirit.

Other than eating them straight out of the container and dipping them into my beloved Nutella, here are a few of our favorite strawberry recipes: From a classic Southern Strawberry Shortcake to a not so classic gelato, that incorporates: strawberries, balsamic and basil! It’s definitely not your ordinary but worth a try!
