STRAWBERRY BREAD: This is the season for strawberries and these luscious, flavorful berries find their way into shortcakes, jellies, jams, ice cream and, yes, even bread. This is a great recipe that appeared in the Amish Cook’s Baking Book and one of our readers decided to make it the other day and share it with us with a photo. Looks yummy!
