How to Make Three-Ingredient Strawberry Sauce

Three-Ingredient Strawberry Sauce

I made a cheesecake for Sugarface’s birthday 🎂. He’s been craving a basic cheesecake with strawberry sauce for months. I finally gave in and made him both the cheesecake and the sauce. So for the second time in my life, I made a cheesecake! It took hours of babysitting but it didn’t crack as my first cheesecake did! It’s all about small victories when living through a pandemic. The easiest thing that made me feel like I can elevate so many things was the strawberry sauce. A vibrant-colored syrup that I’ve had countless times in restaurants literally just takes three-ingredients and about half an hour of your time. I wanted to share my excitement with those who too want to feel a little fancier with little effort. The possibilities are endless. You can add this sauce to yogurt, pancakes, sundaes, waffles, cheesecake, and more.
