Strawberry Shortcake With Balsamic Honey

"Fresh strawberries tossed with balsamic and honey, poured over homemade biscuits and topped with whipped cream. Absolutely decadent! Make sure to have all the ingredients well chilled before beginning. NOTE: I have tested this recipe subbing baking-mix or fridge biscuits, subbing pre-whipped cream, and subbing frozen strawberries. It will work successfully, however the results do not compare to making it 'correctly'."

  1. Carrots are good. Broccoli is great, but I'm sorry I love strawberry shortcake best. Berry delicious! Made for PAC Fall '09


Hi! My name is Katie and I live in Minnesota - just a bit southeast of the Minneapolis. I am employed at a great company called BI, working on loyalty marketing programs. I've loved to cook/bake for as long as I can remember. I grew up helping Mom dump ingredients while she was baking and was the official 'stirrer' until I was old enough to cook. Cooking/baking is the ultimate stress reliever for me. I love to cook for others and am discovering how much fun entertaining is:)! Besides my FT job, I have a small business creating websites. Other interests of mine are inline skating (annual marathon in Sept.), long distance running (love 1/2 marathons), watching Friends DVDs, traveling, and reading. I find myself searching the Zaar daily for recipes and new ideas and I'm always excited to rate some of my faves!! I am working on posting more of my own, but determining my measurements is proving rather tricky.
