Roasted strawberries are hands down my favorite dessert topping. They pair perfectly with everything from cake to ice cream… and even many breakfast items! Best of all, they’re ridiculously easy to make and can be made ahead for storing in the refrigerator or canned for a much later date! The ability to use fresh or frozen strawberries makes this an essential dessert topping for desserts year round! Be sure to check out the recipe archives for delicious strawberry pairing suggestions!

I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day – delicious and stress free! Just as it should be. I spent the majority of the day in the kitchen, two rounds of pictures and playing with the kids. It was a nice relaxing day. I know that sounds funny considering I was busy in the kitchen for much of it but to me that’s relaxing, plus I get to eat the results. Yum! If you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek at one recipe to come. It’ll be a little bit of a wait though since I’m now weeks out on recipes.

I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshing it is to be ahead. In the past I often made recipes a day or two prior to posting thing. Talk about pressure and stressful. This method also means I’m doing a great deal of planning. Are there holidays coming up that I should be cooking for weeks out? I suppose come Fall I’ll be working on Thanksgiving recipes in September this year. Crazy but that’s kind of awesome too because it means double Thanksgivings and who wouldn’t love that?! It’s the tastiest holiday of the year! Mmm carbs and pie.

This week is all about strawberries, specifically roasted strawberries. I figured since the other two recipes this week call for roasted strawberries, it’d make sense to share my favorite recipe for them as a stand alone post. It’s also a tease for what is to come and I do hope you love strawberries. Even if you don’t, I’m sure someone in your life does. So, you don’t want to miss what’s coming up later in the week! It’s totally scrumptious.

What you see here is a double batch of the recipe below. It’ll give you roughly 1 1/2 cups or so, but honestly I didn’t measure it out after it cooked – just guessing. If you want a lot of roasted strawberries… and their amazing juices, you’ll want to double the recipe and use 2 pounds of strawberries. Trust me, it will disappear fast. 

Forget buying that bottle of strawberry sauce from the store. Make your own amazing strawberry sauce. It’s easy and ridiculously tasty, so much so that you’ll want to eat this as is with a spoon. I’m not kidding. And it’s perfect for topping off so many things from breakfast to dessert.
