I would make a yummy gigantic angel food cake topped with hundreds of whole foods fresh strawberries, whipped cream and vanilla ice-cream on the side! Of course I would invite my family, neighbors and friends to share. Many desserts for all in honor! :) Thank you for the fun contest!

First things first - if they are perfect and ripe, wash them and eat them. Nothing better. Unless they're dipped in fresh vanilla whipped cream. Or dark chocolate. Or both. Or alongside some home-made vanilla ice cream Strawberries are delightful in a fresh, young-greens salad with raspberry vinagrette. Starting to go bad? Into the blender with pineapple juice and ice Or pineapple juice and coconut sorbet - with or without rum. Boil the last of them down with sugar and pectin to spread on bread. Or layer with fresh bananas between layers of chocolate cake.

Oh my....where do I start?? The first berry would just get popped into my mouth right out of the container! Then, many would be bathed in chocolate, stirred with Splenda and spread over shortcake, and whipped into smoothies. Jam and jelly would be next followed by pie. Anything left would be dehydrated so that I could use them in my cereal,ice cream and cookies!

I love strawberries! There is so much I like to do with them. Strawberry and Nutella crepes are a must for breakfast. Fresh strawberry, banana and orange smoothies for a great snack. A simple, yet perfect, salad is fresh spinach, strawberies, goat cheese, and toasted walnuts with a balsamic vinegerette. I am also thinking of making a sweet strawberry and mango salsa soon... And of course I always have to dip a few in chocolate, and eat some all by themselves (maybe with a little whipped cream. Yum!)!

I'd make strawberry clafouti, strawberry-rhubarb crisp, and chocolate dipped strawberries... all perfect for a spring brunch buffet! And save some to freeze for smoothies - as my toddler won't eat fresh fruit (crazy little guy) but he loves his "red milk"!

I would make lots of jam, freeze some for smoothies and ice cream, make some desserts like strawberry icebox cake, and of course, eat as many as possible fresh!

Well last night I sprinkled sliced strawberries with sugar and let them juice while I made Sour Cream Cupcakes. Then I served the cupcakes upside down with strawberries and homemade whipped cream on top. It's about 80 degrees right now a Strawberry Smoothie sounds amazing. Think I'll do whip one up.

I would make fresh smoothies for my kids every morning! Both of my kids LOVE strawberries (they should, they have strawberry blond hair!!) and want them every day as part of their meals. I'd also throw them on my salads, yogurt and cereal. What doesn't taste good with strawberries??

Oh. My. Gosh. A summer sea of strawberries would be amazing! First I'd make my grandma's strawberry rhubarb pie, then strawberry-mint infused water and strawberry-blueberry smoothies. A nice strawberry, walnut salad and some grilled strawberries for dessert. Nothing tastes more "summery" than fresh strawberries!

OMG....I would~ wash them gently while eating every 3rd or 4th one. We'd recreate the wonderful honeymoon vacation of going to Bar Harbour, Cadillac Mountain, Jordans Pondhouse with Lobster Bisque and Popovers with Strawberry Jam...made by my husband. We'd have smoothies, shortcake, margarita's, strawberries with yogurt in the am....every.way.possible. Please, pick me. Forever grateful strawberry lover, Darlene <3

What wouldn't I do with a kitchen full of strawberries? I have three little girls who would go through four pounds a day if I'd let them. We'd have strawberry freezer jam, strawberry ice cream, strawberry and feta spinach salad, strawberry popsicles, strawberry yogurt smoothies, strawberry salsa, strawberry sundae/pancake/waffle topping, strawberry pie, strawberry cheesecake... (anyone else reminded of Bubba from Forrest Gump, "shrimp gumbo, shrimp creole, shrimp poor boys..."?). Oh and for mommy, some strawberry margaritas or daquaris after a long hard day of cooking and baking so many strawberry delights!

My husband is originally from Romania and one of his fondest memories is making his own preserves with his grandparents. Now that we have a son, he has mentioned a few times that he would LOVE to make our own jam together as a family. I am pretty sure that we would have a blast making our own preserves. I can just imagine all of us covered in RED!!! Mmmmm delicious!

I would use them in salad, cake, pie, icecream, muffins, bread, and in my lemonade. But my family's favorite way to enjoy them is in smoothies!! Add bananna, yogert, and any other fruit and vegie that you can think of...yumm...

Well, I would first make Strawberry Preserve Jam and Mason Jar distributed amounts for all my family and friends for all of the upcoming holidays! I would then put some in a bowl, with a small amount of Florida's Natural Crystals... maybe even some 365 whipped cream... and I would snack on them all day! Then I would wash and freeze a small amount of strawberries, to make BREAKFAST SMOOTHIES! I would then invite all my friends over for a fondue party... and we would have chocolate fondue and dip our strawberries! With the fondue, we will have NAUGHTY Strawberry Daiquiris... and when everybody leaves, they would be sent home with dried strawberry snack packs! The next day, I would make strawberries and rhubarb tarts... and strawberry shortcake! There would be strawberry cream cheese in the fridge! ...and to make things REALLY interesting, I will try to invent a strawberry hummus...but I'm not sure about that one. Strawberry filled crepes for breakfast the third day...

I would make a strawberry sauce with blackberries. Ratio three to one, strawberries/blackberries, put in a pot with maple syrup and wildflower honey. Mash the berries, you can leave some whole on the side for presentation. This makes a wonderful dipping sauce for croissants, and to have with pancakes or vanilla ice cream. The combination of strawberries with blackberries is heavenly. Then, of course, I'd share it with friends.

First things first...slice a bunch of strawberries up and sprinkle them with sugar and let them be till after lunch. This way the sugar will have time to make an awesome strawberry syrup for strawberry shortcake. A mix of peaches, blueberries, strawberries and yogurt would make a great morning smoothie to start my day. That would give me just the boost I need to start on my famous cheesecake batter. My plan is to hollow out quite a few strawberries, fill them with cheesecake and dip them in dark chocolate with some edible red glitter to make them sparkle. Mmmmmmmmmm!
