Hello, all foodies and fighters! It’s Foodjitsu Friday! Summer is here which means it strawberries time. They are fresh and in season right now so you should better go out and enjoy them. So what to do with all these strawberries? How about dessert but not a lot of sugar? Sometimes you just want something simple and elegant that makes you feel fancy…in comes this recipe. I made this recipe for mother’s day brunch and everyone loved it,
To take this recipe to the next level I used a great product, Gaea Balsamic & Honey Glaze. It’s an amazing garnish and adds a wonderful sweet and tangy flavor on top of the rich mascarpone cream. Feel free to add it to seafood, steaks, and salads as well this summer I think you’ll really enjoy it.
So get in the kitchen and check out this recipe. If you have any questions leave comments below and remember cooking is simple, not easy!
