Wild Strawberry Shortcake

Every year during the early Spring we try to make it down to Florida to enjoy the already-warm weather that I oh-so-miss in Atlanta that time of year. We hit up the beach for a day, catch a few Spring Training games and Disney for a day (because, #momlife) but my classic favorites include the Strawberry Festival in Plant City and taking the kids to pick fresh strawberries from the field.

Make it Fresh

This season I decided to incorporate sprawling springs of fresh mint from my garden (since there is SO much) and the outcome was so beautiful I just had to share. I really hope you’ll give this one a try – trust me, you’ll never go back!

A Beautiful Treat

In all honesty, one of my favorite things about this delicious treat is how beautifully aesthetic it is. I feel like a classic strawberry shortcake encompasses all things fresh, yummy, memorable, and wholesome. At the start of every spring and summer, this recipe is one my kids and I come crawling back to- all of us for its scrumptious taste, and me especially for the charm it invites into our kitchen.
