Decorating with Strawberries

Sunday morning comes and right after breakfast we are excited to tackle our strawberry project… a sort of Strawberry Meringue cake which originated from Monterrey, Mexico.
We first came across this recipe watching a rerun episode of Chef Marcela Valladolid’s show on the Food Network “Mexican Made Easy.”  I have included a link to the recipe at the bottom of the blog.
We start out by rinsing the strawberries and thinly slicing them to reveal the beautiful pattern inside.  We chop walnuts into fine pieces and Sydney’s favorite part comes along… crushing the Maria cracker.
