Monica's Simple Strawberry Shortcakes
Monica's Simple Strawberry Shortcakes
"When you can get your hands on good strawberries, you don't need to do very much to them. For old-fashioned strawberry shortcakes, I layer some slightly sweetened strawberries and whipped cream inside a buttermilk biscuit (a lighter and super easy to make one, at that). The strawberries bring out the buttery flavor of the biscuits, the crunchy edges of the biscuit contrasts with the smooth cream, and you have a great mixture of flavors and textures."—Monica M.

Rachel's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
"Every spring I impatiently wait for the rhubarb to show up at my local farmer's market so I can make this strawberry rhubarb pie. I don't usually like pie, but the sweet/tart combination of strawberry rhubarb is one I can't pass up. I especially love eating it for breakfast!"—Rachel R.

Robyn's Strawberry Ganache Tartlets
Robyn's Strawberry Ganache Tartlets
"For real, organic strawberries the shelf life is all too fleeting and that's as it should be. So, best to encase them in some sweet glaze and nestle them in rich chocolate ganache sitting in a buttery pate sablee crust. It's all a lot easier than it sounds. And the results are a fancy schmancy pastry worthy of the best Parisian patisserie."—Robyn F.
Arielle's Individual Strawberry Pavlovas
Arielle's Individual Strawberry Pavlovas
"Adapted from a Melissa d'Arabian recipe, I more or less used her pavlova base but just topped with berries macerated in some sugar. Best way to showcase fresh seasonal strawberries."—Arielle B.
Ella's Strawberry Cream Cake
Ella's Strawberry Cream Cake
"Living in Rochester, NY, I got tired of waiting for in season strawberries a month ago. I turned to frozen strawberries and a few imported fresh berries to make a strawberry cream cake. The filling was tricky because I wanted a fresh fruit filling that didn't make the cake soggy. A modified fresh strawberry pie filling did the trick perfectly, with a thin coat of heritage frosting on either side for insulation."—Ella S.

"This moist and soft buttermilk cake is a recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen. I added my own touch by studding the cake with strawberry pieces and making a tangy strawberry sauce to pair with the cake. It's a simple easy recipe which made a cake that was devoured in a day!"—Connie L.
