I can’t think of a better dessert to represent my favorite season, than strawberry shortcake. Combining fresh berries, a sponge-like cake and fresh whipped cream. Every summer has to be celebrated with Strawberry Shortcake in our house. How about you? Is this something you make every summer or do you have another summer favorite you can’t live without?

This year I controlled myself a little and we only picked 6 quarts of berries. Usually I go insane and buy way more than we need. #proudmoment for this Momma. You can even ask my kids. I’ll be like “O.K. Just fill up this last box and then we’re done.” They fill it to the brim. 10 minutes later I’m still there picking berries while they swelter in the sun.
Pure torture, right?
I’m not trying to torture them but in a way it makes life more fair you know. Like this in essence makes up for the the annoying noises and fights in the car over who touched who. It’s just a little payback for those lovely little mothering moments we clearly all love dearly.

I also make up for baking them in the sun by making fun and fresh fruity desserts. After mom serves up amazing berry desserts they totally forget all about the back end of the story and they enjoy the fresh goodies of summer.
See, I’m not a bad mom after all!
Hope your summer is well my friend.
