This past week our little family have all been suffering the ills of winter. Snuffly noses and sleepy dispositions, we have all been a little out of sorts. As I sit here at my computer a foggy head means even writing this introduction comes in fits and starts - the words don't flow the way they normally would and inspiration is, frustratingly enough, out of reach.
I must confess that I hesitated to post this recipe as it was one I wrote way back at the end of last year when strawberries were in abundance and I was powerless to their pull. Now the offerings on the shelves of our fruit and vege shop are pale and undoubtedly lacking in flavour having flown half way across the world just to appease the appetites of those who cannot live without summer fruit in winter. However.....it does happen to be summer in the Northern Hemisphere, AND for those of you located South of the equator then frozen strawberries will work just as well. Thinly sliced pear would also be a delicious substitute and should you be a white chocolate fan then give that a go too. Really it is one of those recipes that you can adapt to suit your taste or the contents of your pantry. And as it is grey and wet outside, yet again, then this is the perfect comfort food, served snuggled up by the fire.
