I’m one of those people who can eat vegetables morning, noon and night – but put a bowl of fruit in front of me and it will likely stay there until someone else eats it.
My logical mind knows that fruit is an abundant source of good-for-me stuff, but my hand just can’t seem to reach for that crispy apple, or fragrant peach.
Berries are a different story. I can eat the whole container of freshly picked berries before you get a chance to pick out just one.
When I was a kid my grandmother had a backyard filled with raspberries. She would have us kids over to pick berries so we could take some home. I think Grandma wanted free labor, but we didn’t mind because she’d come from the house with bowls, sugar and cream (yes, whole cream). We’d take some of our loot and plop those tender berries into a bowl, top them with sugar (like they needed more) and cream. This was a treat to die for, as far as I was concerned.
Anyway, in the spirit of my love of berries of all kinds, I’m sharing a few of my favorite recipes with you in hopes that you’ll share your favorites with me.
For breakfast I’m all for smoothies and muffins . . .
For desserts you can’t beat cobblers, crepes and bars . . .
And why not use berries in your favorite salad dressings and sauces . . .
See? I’m all about the berries and I’m hoping you are too.
If you have a berry recipe you’d like to share with us, link it up here. If it’s a low calorie recipe, that’s even better!
