Yep, Strawberries and Cream…French style 🙂

When I met my parents for my mom’s birthday dinner, they brought along a great gift for me!  Local strawberries 🙂

On their drive to the restaurant, they drove past Carrigan Farms in Mooresville.  They picked up a large carton of freshly picked berries and were kind enough to share with me!

I seriously ate over a dozen as soon as we returned home from dinner.  I had to put a few in a separate container in the refrigerator to save some for this recipe…

Remember the cookbook Courtney gave me this cookbook for my birthday?  Well, I decided to take your votes for a dessert recipe and finally make one.  I plan on making a more complicated recipe soon but decided that since these were my first strawberries of the season, I should make a simple recipe that really celebrates the sweet flavor of the strawberries.  So what better recipe than strawberries with whipped cream?

And, yep, I whipped my own cream.  For the first time 🙂  It really wasn’t complicated and only took 3 ingredients: sugar, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream. 

I whipped the cream for several minutes until it formed stiff peaks.  Then added the sugar and vanilla to taste…

After, I had the perfect dessert…

Nothing beats fresh local fruit 🙂  And of course whipped cream!
