You guys. I have been so inspired by the strawberries in stores lately. Have you seen them? Especially at Trader Joes. They are glorious. Deep deep red and full of summer flavor. Exactly how a strawberry should be.
We can’t get enough around here and have been eating them raw, in salads, and most recently in the most beautiful and easy strawberry crisp.
Friends. This came together in minutes. Five, tops. You mix together a few ingredients with the berries. You mix together a few ingredients for the crisp oat topping and bam. Bake away.
Thirty five minutes or so later you’ve got the most wonderful thing in your kitchen: the promise of summer.
Now don’t forget the vanilla ice cream!
