Strawberries, the star of summer

When you think of summer fruits the first that generally comes to mind are STRAWBERRIES. I have tried to imagine summers without these perfect fruits and I pray we never have to be without them. You can freeze them, can them, chocolate cover them, make them into a smoothie, bake them...what really can you not do with them?

These little multifaceted jewels go great with so many other foods.

Biscuits made from scratch and strawberry jam-very simple yet oh so good.

Here we have the pavlova with fresh blueberries and strawberries-that chewy goodness from the meringue topped with cream and fruit, a nice summer treat.

I've never had pavlova...doesn't seem for me although it is really pretty--but I'm all over those biscuits and jam! YUM!

I had never had one before, but it was on my list of foods to bake and since I had extra egg whites and some berries, why not make it. I like the chewiness of the meringue, but it's not something I could see making all the time. It would be much less waste to make marshmallows since the pavlova doesn't hold up well after cream and fruits are put on it.
