Signs of Summer

Aside from averaging 85° weather daily, strawberries are also a key indicator that we're well on our way to Summer.  And really, who doesn't love strawberries? They're the earth's all natural candy that are so juicy and sweet, every bite feels indulgent. 

When strawberries are incorporated into even sweeter desserts, the end product is usually out of this world.

Strawberry, meet my friend, Balsamic Vinegar. You guys are really going to hit it off.

Drizzle balsamic vinegar over two carton of strawberries. Toss in a couple tablespoons of sugar, too.

While strawberries are marinating, whip a carton of whipping cream with a little bit of lime zest, vanilla and powdered sugar.

Layer sliced angel food cake, marinated strawberries and whipped cream. Repeat.

Smooth out the top layer of whipped cream and set in the refrigerator to cool.  Wait until tomorrow to eat it, I promise it will be worth it.
