Strawberries and a Recipe!

HAPPY 2ND ANNIVERSARY TO BEVERLY'S PINK SATURDAY BLOGGERS!!!!  I am pretty much a newcomer to this, but have enjoyed meeting some of you over the past couple months.  I am blogging today about strawberries!  Always a favorite growing up, I remember going picking with my mom up in Washington, crouching down to find those juicy treasures under the leaves.  She made--and still makes THE BEST strawberry jam!  I am sharing the little pink and red strawberry bubble rompers that I have recently made, along with my mom's strawberry cookbook, From the Strawberry Patch and a recipe by her grandma, my babushka who I blogged about in my last post.

This is the Newborn to 5 months size

My mom published this in the early 80's and it is no longer in print, but sometimes you can find it on Sharon Kay Alexander...she put a favorite recipe of each person in our family, but my  favorite now, that I thought some of you would like is my great grandma's  strawberry shortcake recipe!!!  It's written the way she cooked...a handful of this, a pinch of that, so my mom "translated" it

Aren't her pages adorable?!!  You should be able to click on these and then save to your computer if you would like.  And here is a picture of yours truly with my great grandparents in front of their farm house!

notice her pink geraniums in the screen porch window...I  always remember those!

Thank you so much for coming by!
