Spring is right around the corner and soon we will be talking delicious sweet fresh strawberries. This beautiful dessert is made with only wholesome natural ingredients that you can name and that you understand. Put natures best together with sweet sun ripened strawberries and the end result is almost heavenly. Not to mention that this beauty is sprinkled with sweet buttery pecans and drizzled with a luscious strawberry glaze. Need I say more!
