One thing that I love about June is it means that strawberry season is here. Over the years, I have made several strawberry desserts that are still family favorites. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Every summer while growing up, I looked forward to my grandma's special strawberry jam. A couple of years ago I was thinking of her jam and how much I missed it. She has been gone several years, and no one took over the jam making. I asked my mom if she knew the recipe, and I was shocked to find out that it is actually pretty simple. Here is the full Strawberry Jam recipe if you would like to try some of your own.
Every time I make my family Strawberry Bread it disappears very quickly. When I originally made this post I had to make it twice, because my son ate almost an entire loaf by himself. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to go pull out my pans and make it again.
While technically this is not a strawberry recipe on it's own, there are strawberries in it I made these Banana Split Pudding Parfaits for special pudding company post last summer, and they turned out amazing! They tasted just like a real banana split but lighter since they are not made with ice cream.
Last year I wanted to try something new. I love strawberry shortcake so I wondered if I could make a Strawberry Shortcake Cake. Adding strawberries and glaze to an angel food cake, I come up with this light dessert cake.
One of our favorite 4th of July traditions is the Easy 4th of July Strawberry Pie. Underneath that white whipped cream and blueberries. is a delicious strawberry pie that is perfect for parties and holiday get-togethers. Every time I make it, it disappears right away. I am sure we will make it again in the next few weeks.
