How could anything with this list of ingredients be anything other than scrumptious? Once a year is probably about as often as the poor old diet will take of this, but mark it on your calendar and have something to look forward to.

Looked up this recipe after having it at a friend's house during strawberry season. It's divine -- fresh and light and hard to stop eating. But, being American, can't resist adding a bit of sugar to the cream as it whips.
