Strawberry Explosion

Phyllis Garard


I created this recipe using ideas taken from 2 other JAP member so giving credit where credit is due to Jo Anne Sugimoto and Penny R. Hope they like the changes I made.I tweaked it to make it different. I made this when my son came to visit he said it was like an explosion of taste in his mouth.
Sorry about the photo it is really a pink color
