Thank you for sharing!

When I’m making a yummy breakfast for the family, I like to be creative.

It’s also kind of awesome that this recipe has fresh strawberries, which means that I need to eat it all right away–no leftovers for me! LOL!

The best part of this recipe is that the cream cheese mixes with the strawberries in pretty much every bite. If you can get the nuts spaced just right, you get the awesome mixture of cream cheese, strawberries AND nuts in each bite, which makes my tongue sing. So, yes, I love this recipe. Eat it.
