Strawberry season is in full swing and Valentines day is also just around the corner! Enter this Strawberry and apple crumble - insanely easy, sweet and tangy, butter-y, crunchy and OMG delicious!

Speaking of easy desserts, No bake chocolate tart  and Paan and rose trifle jars are also unbelievably easy and so droolicious. It will be perfect too for Valentines day !
