Being that it's National Strawberry Month and strawberry season is in full effect, we thought it would be a great time to share some of our favorite strawberry recipes. I, for one, am willing to try strawberry ANYTHING and with so many delicious recipes to choose from I am going to have a difficult time to settling on one for the weekend. That's probably why I won't. Who says I can't make them all? Haha!
I live in Florida after all. I'm lucky enough to have a bevy of beautiful berries right at my fingertips! I just have to make sure that they last long enough for me to make something with them. I have a bunch of little berry bandits in the house...
Cheese Stuffed Strawberries...First up we have the easiest "recipe" of them all. These stuffed strawberries are the perfect appetizer for your weekend celebrations. And you can throw them together in NO time which makes them all the more appealing!
Strawberry Pretzel Parfait...This is such a fun take on a parfait. The saltiness from the pretzel combined with the sweetness of the strawberries and the creaminess of the cream has this girl drooling! Ditch those typical desserts and try something different!
Strawberry Basil Lemonade...I can't think of a more refreshing summer drink than a tall cold glass of this strawberry goodness. Serve it at your next ladies luncheon and your guests will be so much more impressed than if you served plain old lemonade! Plus, I wouldn't say not to adding a little vodka to it...Would you?

Mom Picks for Best Modern Wooden Play Gyms
Let's be honest: Most baby gyms look like a primary color explosion of yikesness. And yes, I owned one and found it an absolute lifesaver at that bewitching hour when every child under 1 starts crying right when you need to be cooking dinner. But whenever company arrived, I would ...read more
Chocolate Covered Strawberries...I'm loving the idea of these red, white and blue strawberries. You could take this idea and really run with it...Just think of all the different colored sprinkles you could dip chocolate covered strawberries in! You could customize them for all your parties!
Strawberry and Watermelon Ice Pops...If there is one treat my kiddos ask for every single day during the summer, it's ice pops. I love the idea of going a more natural route and making them myself instead of buying the pre-made ones! And while you're at it, why not make some strawberry infused water too?
So, which of these sinfully sweet strawberry recipes are you going to tackle?! Or you going to make like me and have a strawberry smorgasbord?
