Two awesome festivals are happening at the same time in Louisiana this weekend! The French Quarter Fest in New Orleans and the Strawberry Fest in Ponchatoula! Since, I OVER indulged at the French Quarter Fest yesterday, I’m posting my Strawberries Romanoff recipe in honor of the Strawberry Fest! This is my favorite thing to order at La Madeleine’s and I think my version is pretty delicious as well. It’s light, fresh, and ideal to enjoy in this beautiful spring weather! I hope you are taking advantage of these perfect, breezy days.
