I don't know whats in season(apart from you) where you live Alix said srawbs so I would buy a quality balsamic (a minimum of 12 yrs old) slice the strawb in half then just before serving add a pinch of ground black pepper and a drizzle of balsamic.

Pardon me for being a envious old cynic

If she likes apples, cut up and peel her favorite honey crisp apples, add about 2 teaspoons of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a pot...let them cook until they are nice and golden brown. Serve them with haagen daaz caramel cone ice cream. The combination is absolutely killer!!

This is my XXX killer from my old recipe book "a thousand and one ways to pluck a chicken"
First make some crepes, then puree and pass a mixture of raspberries and strawberries (you need to pass it through a sieve to get the pips out,there is nothing more embarrassing than when your victim gets a pip lodged under her false teeth), then make up a meringue mix and fold in the puree till you get a flesh like rosy pink color.
Heat your grill.
Lay your crepe on the grill pan and put a bid blob of the pink meringue mix in the middle, fold in half press down lightly till the meringue reaches the edge, dust with icing sugar and grill. The meringue will start to expand and contract as it releases steam causing your folded pink meringue stuffed crepe to pulse like a ......

Take 3 slices of a rustic white bread about 1/2 inch thick toast til golden then spread with good butter. Spoon on crushed or sliced strawberries I like the crushed berries then sprinkle well with sugar. Put under the broiler or use a torch carmelize the sugar about 2 min.

Line a tart pan with a graham cracker crumb mixture, bake and allow to chill. Brush that shell with melted white chocolate, fill with a vanilla custard/pudding. Top with sliced fresh strawberries, kiwi and some blueberries. Brush with a peach glaze and chill until service.
Using a regular size muffin tin you could make individual ones so you would not have to slice through it for plating and serving.

I love the mini strawberry cheesecake idea. This version will be no-bake. Melt 2 tbs. butter and combine with 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs and two tbs. sugar. Press a thin layer of the crumb mixture into a couple of pretty goblets, half way up the sides, and place in the fridge.

Warm in the microwave 1/4 cup sour cream and 2 lb. cream cheese. Add 3/4 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar. Mix until the sugar is dissolved. Taste and adjust the sugar level to make it as sweet as you want. Wash fresh, sweet strawberries and remove the hull. Slice from top to bottom parallel to the wide side. Many of the slices will look like hearts.

Carefully spoon the cream cheese mixture into the goblets and strategically place strawberries on top. Spread a little strawberry jam on top and stick some berries in just enough so they will stand up. Maybe put a tbs. or so of whipped cream in the center, again with a strawberry standing in it. Serve. Strawberry hearts on cheesecake, served in a pretty glass goblet, what could be more romantic?

Tip: There is pre-made cheesecake spread available in tubs, in the dairy section of your local supermarket. It tastes pretty good, not quite as good as home made, but not bad, and very easy to work with. You still have to make your own crust though.

For strawberries, I love to make stuffed strawberries, with blueberry syrup and whipped cream. These can also be arranged on a little shortcake. Prepare the strawberries by cutting off the top, and using the top as a base. Cut into quarters just enough to open the strawberry, but not enough to split into peices. Squeeze slightly to open.

For the "stuffing", use a package of cream cheese, about a cup-1.5c of whipped cream, and about a cup of powdered sugar. Cream them all together until smooth, (start off with just a little whipped cream, it can make it liquidy). Put the mixture into a ziplock bag, cut the corner off and fill the strawberries. from the quartered side.

Simmer a pint of blueberrries with a 1/2c of spiced rum, 1/4c-1/2c sugar (depending on how sweet you want it) and a table spoon of lemon juice for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Don't let it boil. Puree the mixture and use a seive or cheesecloth to thin the syrup out if desired (Both ways are pretty delicious).

I use one of the litte angel food cakes, top with cool whip, and put 3 stuffed strawberries, Stuffed side up. And use the blue berry syrup as a garnish.

This looks like a million bucks, but has the satisfaction of a strawberry cheesecake, and an lightness of the angelfood cake. I promise, you won't regret it. I think I'll go pick up some fruit tomorrow!

My husband and I were engaged just 3 months after we started dating. If he'd made me this while we were dating, it would have been days. (But don't let that scare you off Z, not all girls are that willing to tie the knot) Everything here sounds wonderful, but I have to admit, if I was a girl being wooed, this would impress the heck out of me!
