I love bread! I’m a carbivore to the bone. I used to think that living on a diet of just bread and cheese sounded really good! I know, I’m a little odd. I never wanted the beef in a hamburger, I used to eat the bun with all of the fixings and never add the meat! I still do this. Try as I might, I have never been able to get myself to like the taste of meat. I haven’t eaten meat in 4 years because I finally decided to quit trying to force myself to like it. So I’m pretty happy on my diet of breads, fruits, veggies, and of course huge amounts of cheese and pasta. Needless to say I am always looking for new yummy meat free recipes to add into my daily diet!

This strawberry bread proved to be just the thing! I had leftover strawberries from my strawberry cupcakes that I made a few days ago, so I decided to try my hand at making a bread! it turned out pretty dang good! I will say though, go easy on the strawberries! I put 2 cups of chopped strawberries in the recipe because I got all excited about the flavor. What happens in breads when you add too much fruit that has a wet consistency is you end up getting wet spots in your bread. So my bread had a couple of spots that were a little too moist, but it was still yummy! I would recommend only using 1-1 1/2 cups of strawberries to avoid this problem.
