Sarah's Strawberry Shortcake, the Power of Nostalgia, & Being Too Competitive

Sarah's Strawberry Shortcake, the Power of Nostalgia, & Being Too Competitive

My lovely friend Sarah, born on the 4th of July and one of the best Americans I know, was telling me about her birthday traditions on a recent visit. Sarah casually mentioned Strawberry Shortcake was her birthday dessert of choice. After much interrogation I asked her if she would let me make her MY strawberry shortcake. But what she didn't realize is that I rather selfishly wanted to make the best strawberry shortcake she's ever had.
