What to do with all of those strawberries?

I took Brayden and Addison on their first trip to strawberry farm next door to our house last week.....'tis the season! 

They loved every minute of running through the rows of berries and before we knew it, we had several full trays of strawberries going home with us ... even though Addie decided to eat every strawberry she could find. 

In our house, we all devour berries any chance we get, but we had too many to eat alone after that trip.  It got me looking around for new recipes to try for making preserves, cookies, cakes and more.

Enjoy these recipes for making great use of those extra berries you have on hand after your trip to the strawberry farm this season!
