If y’all have been reading my posts often then you know my true love for Strawberry Shortcake! I mean — I die for a homemade shortcake! So delicious! Which is why I truly fell in love with Chef Noah French of TAG Restaurant in Denver when I heard he has a recipe for a Summer Citrus Shortcake.
My heart belongs to the strawberries, but on the other hand, I do have a little rendezvous with the peach occasionally, and now — NOW! to find out that I may be converting all together to a Lemon?! How can this be, you may ask?! Oh, just try it….you’ll understand. Trust me 🙂
