I’ve been seeing red, sweet strawberries everywhere lately and it’s a signal of warm and sunny days ahead! Our family goes strawberry picking each year and it’s a great starter fruit to pick since strawberries grow low on the ground and are easy for little hand to pick by themselves.

From homemade fruit roll-ups to strawberry shortcake (in pancake and cookie form!) to easy jams – there’s a berry sweet recipe here for everyone.
