My Strawberry Is Your Strawberry

If you are following my blog, you will know this week I am focusing on my 3 favorite strawberry recipes. Monday I posted a recipe for a strawberry sauce (Strawberry Fields Forever )- so yummy! Today is a recipe for a strawberry crisp. Most strawberry recipes pair strawberries with rhubarb and not that I am not a fan but sometimes I want to enjoy the taste of just the strawberries. This recipe does just that.
