So sweet for the season.

For Valentine’s Day today, I’m thinking about all the special friends in my life. My thoughts go back to my teen years, those influential in my life like my best friend, Lisa, my 10 roommates (and 12 weddings that I was in), in my 20s, my sisters, parents, so many close friends back then who are still dear to my heart today. And then, my husband and 3 amazing kids. I am truly blessed.

My heart is full of love today!

I came across this picture of Paul and me, one of our first dates!

25 years later, I’m happy to say that we are still in love.

He’s the best thing that ever happened to me. I feel like the luckiest girl on the planet.

I also set out some chocolates on this plate before we left town last week. Years ago when my mom passed away, I preserved her handwriting from a card, and put it onto a plate. (DIY Transfer Handwriting to a Plate)

Yield: 6 small loaves, 12 mini loaves or 2 large loaves

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: up to 55 minutes, depending on size of pan

Total Time: 1 hour

Fresh strawberries and cinnamon are the stars in this Easy Strawberry Bread. A great way to take advantage of strawberry season! Cooking times vary depending on the size of loaves used.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups mini chocolate chips
  • 2 1/2 cups diced strawberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray loaf pans with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir in the vegetable oil, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract. The batter will be thick. Stir in the strawberries.
  3. Place the batter in the prepared pans. Bake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-45 minutes (depending on the size of the pan). Cool the loaves in the pans for 10-15 minutes, before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
