Delicious strawberry recipes
Doesn't everyone love strawberries? I've never known anyone who doesn't like them. But I've known plenty of people who absolutely adore them.
At certain times of year, they are incredibly cheap and I'm always looking for new recipes to use them.
So what we have here is a growing collection. I always associate them with the summer months - when I was growing up in England, we had many friends and neighbours who grew them in their gardens so there was an almost constant supply in the warmer months.
My mum was excellent at finding delicious ways to use them, although just as they are with a dollop of cream was certainly one of my favourites. (Or ice cream, just to make lovey change).
But let's be more adventurous than that,shall we? There are so many lovely ways to use these gorgeous berries.

A new classic
This completely surprised me.
I'd heard that there was such a thing as a strawberry pie made using 7-Up. I found a recipe but it used ingredients that I don't generally have in the house.
So I decided to make a lighter, healthier version.
It's very, very tasty with the bonus of being very quick and easy to make.
Quick & easy pudding
This is very good indeed and it's based on a dish my mum used to make. It's easy and it's also inexpensive. It's adaptable too because you can use any combination of berries in any proportions - just use what you have to hand. When strawberries are more expensive, use cheaper berries to make them go further.
No-cook delicious tart
Another idea based on something my mum used to make.This is an incredibly easy to prepare tart (especially if you use ready-prepared pastry cases). I serve this with lots of fresh strawberries piled on top with cream or with ice cream.
If you don't have pastry cases - or want to have fewer calories - serve in glasses on its own.
A lovely combination
What a wonderful recipe this is - with a tremendous story behind it too. (Somehow, these stories make the recipes so much more special and interesting.) It's a lovely combination of chicken and delicious fruit - low calorie, healthy and remarkably tasty. Click on the link below to see the full instructions. Wonderful. Thanks to LynnKK..
