It’s strawberry season! I can’t resist those luscious sweet berries at the farmers market. Strawberries Marsala is one of the easiest and quickest desserts to make. In its simplest form, you can serve the strawberries in individual serving bowls. You can guild the lily, so to speak, by embellishing with a little whip cream if you like. These strawberries pair sinfully well with tiramisu or pound cake for dessert. I also serve it as a strawberry sauce on top of French toast made with Italian bread when I have special guests over for breakfast.
