Everybody living outside of a plastic bubble loves strawberries and cream, and you can't find many more snacks that are so simple to prepare.
  • Start with the fruit: you should buy them the day before, then throw them in the fridge. Keep them intact rather than slicing them up.

  • Either the night before or immediately before serving, rinse the strawberries to remove any possible nasties from them.

  • Take a knife and decapitate the little tuft of green vegetation at the top of each strawberry.

  • Next, the cream: either bust out the can of Readiwhip and just squirt away or make some decent stuff.

  • The decent stuff is known formally as chantilly cream. Here's what you'll need to make it:

    1 cup of whipping cream
    3 tablespoons of powdered sugar
    teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • In a bowl, whip the chilled cream until it stiffens up from a liquid into little peaks.

  • Next, add the vanilla and powdered sugar slowly while you continue beating the cream. Voila!

  • You can serve this mix in a simple bowl, though it looks best in glass-stemmed dishes. Just fill the bowl with strawberries and top it off with sinful amounts of the cream.
