The weather around here in Orange County is officially warming up! I am looking forward to endless beach days with the kids, and lots of summer recipe work. On a stroll through my local farmers market I could not get over how sweet the berries smelt from the stand. I stood there for a few minuets just smelling the berry air… obviously couldn’t resist that sweet smell so I purchased a flat of beautiful bright red strawberries. The recipe would probably work with frozen, however they do release more liquid so I would add more flour.

Strawberries at peak season are honestly the best to use in recipes, they add so much flavor to both sweet a savory dishes. My little girl loves to help me in the kitchen, together we made this super soft & moist bread, it bursts with strawberries in every bite! I love banana bread, the addition of sweet strawberries takes it to another level of deliciousness.

I know your going to love it!
