June has arrived, and with it, the first of one of our favorite summer fruits—strawberries! Sweet and juicy, strawberries are delicious plain or sliced onto cereal, but we also love them made into fresh strawberry preserves, baked into a tasty treat, or as the star ingredient in a cold, creamy dessert. Whether you pick your own or stock up at the market, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to use up summer’s first berries. That is, if you don’t eat them all first!

Kids love this wiggly, layered retro favorite. The contributor says this delicious combination of strawberries and pineapple serves eight, but our tester witnessed four kids, all of them under the age of ten, devouring an entire recipe. Who can resist?
