Finally, it's time for strawberry! There are lots of strawberries in the market but the price is still somehow expensive and the taste is not sweet as it should be. My hubby told me that it's too early for the having strawberry as dessert. Normally we like having them with some sugar and a little bit lemon juice mix together.
Last week, I saw some red and big strawberries in the market so I did not hesitate to take them with me…..hehehe.
And yes, my hubby is right!! They are not enough sweet to eat them fresh, so I thought to use them in making muffin.
I have never make dessert with strawberry and banana together, I am curious how it will be and it's really perfect!
