IMG_0323

Today i'm sharing one of my favorite family's recipe, it actually never had a name, well not that I remember, but I called " Strawberries with JELL- O". This has been my Family's recipe for years, since I was a little girl I always used to see my grandmother and my aunts make this dessert for special occasions, specially for birthday parties. I know is nothing out of this world but I grew up eating this at everybody's birthday party in my house and it became one of my favorite desserts. So, today I decided to share this special recipe with you girls. I hope you all enjoy it!

Wash all the pack of strawberries and leave them in clean water for a couple of minutes, this will help remove all the dirt that comes in it until you gather together all the ingredients that you need.

Remove all the water and place them in a wood board to cut all the strawberries in thin lines (like the picture above), this will help when we put them flat on the aluminium foil.
