“Hard to believe- May, month of the delectable. sweet strawberry, will soon be over! Looking forward to the warmth and more delicious fruits of the season! Hurry sunshine!”

Growing up, my parents would often pick the most delicious, field strawberries. Sprinkled with sugar and a splash of cognac, it brings me back to a simpler time

. In addition to enjoying the berry salad, we savored the homemade strawberry shortcake my mother would bake for me or my siblings on special birthdays. Two layers of moist “secret recipe” pound cake, (secret-because it was misplaced years ago) slathered with a fluffy whip cream filling and loaded with slices of fresh strawberries, this cake was worth the year’s wait!
