Berries, you make me happy


This year I am trying to take full advantage of summer food with lots of trips to the farmers market to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies, especially berries. I've been eating my way through pint after pint of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries and finding new ways to enjoy them.

This weekend a few friends came over to my place and we made lemonade cocktails with raspberries and strawberries that were summer heaven. And I cooked an apricot raspberry cobbler as my first recipe from Rustic Fruit Desserts. I was lucky enough to win this book as a giveaway on Rachel's awesome blog and I intend to make every recipe in the book at some point.


  1. Mmmmm! The cocktails and the cobbler sound sooo good! My friend and I made a fresh cherry pie yesterday and it was so fun. Oh, don't you just love fresh fruit in the summer? : )

  2. YUM! The cobbler looks like it turned out perfectly. Nothing like peaches in the summer. I like to leave the skins on for added texture, too. Drool.

  3. Oh I am so glad the book arrived!! and that cobbler looks delicious. Yesterday I made the stone fruit cornmeal upside down cake with cherries, beaches, and an apple. such a great way to use up old fruit.
