Easiest Dessert Ever!

A great dinner deserves a great dessert. But after a rich comfort food dinner, like roast chicken and mashed potatoes, the last thing you need is a heavy dessert. Fortunately, I found these beautiful strawberries at the grocery store this morning. They're huge and perfect! Not one to leave perfection alone..., I mixed light sour cream with light brown sugar (to taste) to dip these gorgeous strawberries into - perfection meets its match!

Now those are the most perfect looking strawberries. I haven't seen any like that around here yet. Love the sour cream and brown sugar dip.

Yum! The berries look great (as well as the roast chicken dinner in the previous post). I found your blog via the Foodie BlogRoll.

What a great spring idea and so easy. Just goes to show you that you don't have to spend hours to make something perfect.

Buon appetito,

My family has been dipping strawberries in sour cream and then dark brown sugar literally for decades. Having grown up near the strawberry fields of central California and having freinds in the berry business, we always got the freshest vine ripened strawberries. It's a great combination of flavors.
