I had a wonderful and lazy weekend...which definitely doesn’t happen often enough. Saturday, I went over to a friend’s house for a BBQ and watched the Kentucky Derby (way to go Animal Kingdom!), and Sunday I hit up the nursery for some pretty flowers to add to my little garden. And that was about it. The rest of my weekend was spent reading, napping, and watching movies. Ahhhh.

But Sunday night, I found myself craving something light and sweet, so I decided on Wine-Soaked Strawberries with fresh Whipped Cream.

Whenever I drink sangria, I find myself constantly fishing the wine soaked fruit out of the bottom of my glass, savoring each bite, and wishing I had more. Enter Wine-Soaked Strawberries. The wine perfectly brings out the sweetness of the strawberries and paired with fresh whipped cream, it makes for a delightful and dreamy dessert.

Wine-Soaked Strawberries

2 cups fresh strawberries (cut into quarters)
1/2 cup red wine 
1 tablespoon sugar

Combine all three ingredients in large mixing bowl. Let soak in refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving. 
When ready to serve, place strawberries in a small dish or bowl. Top with a dollop of whipped cream.

Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar

Place sugar and whipping cream in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until cream reaches stiff peaks.
