Hello Spring! You know Springtime has arrived when strawberries are already on sale at the grocery. Over a week ago, we bought about 6 pints worth of strawberries because my kids love strawberries and I usually give them fruits for snack in their school. However, we never got the chance to eat all of them because we were away for a few days. This was the time I met my sister who pleasantly surprised me with her presence on my birthday celebration all the way from the Philippines.

When we returned from our trip to New York a few days ago, hubby checked out the fridge to see what food we still had (or perhaps he was just hungry and was looking for something to eat!). He then informed me that we still had a lot of strawberries that we should eat soon. I thought they’d be totally off already after a few days. Thankfully, most were still in pretty good shape and certainly eatable.

I originally planned to make a strawberry cake to use the remaining berries but everything just got busy and there was no time left for baking. Thankfully, there’s a wonderfully tasty recipe for strawberries that required no baking, was quick and easy to make and, wonderfully, I had all the ingredients to make it – Balsamic Strawberries with Mascarpone!  Glad the strawberries didn’t go to waste and we were left with a delicious  and fuss-free dessert. I actually ended up snacking on these balsamic-flavored berries and couldn’t wait until dinner was over. So, whether for dessert or snacking these flavored berries are truly delightful! 🙂

    I have had balsamic strawberries in a salad before, but I haven't had it as a dessert like this. Sounds like it would have been perfect for an Easter dessert.
