  1. So Good!! Thank you, you are so right about becoming a favorite. Was going to share but believe I will just freeze it for me:).

    • joan,
      Sure! Recipes were made to be modified and experimented upon! It will probably make the bread a slightly bit more soggy if you use the frozen strawberries that come soaked in syrup. But, if you use just the frozen whole strawberries, they should work almost just like fresh berries would.
