I have been having a love affair this year with…Julia Childs Berry Clafoutis. Maybe someday I’ll complete that sentence with news in the romance department but in the meantime, I’m not complaining a bit about settling with this simple, custardy fruit dessert. Clafoutis is kind of a cross between a cake and a pudding and it is everything, This year it’s a simple pleasure that’s been like a little salvation.
There was a time an Easy Mixed Berry Crisp like this was a big splurge, but with berries so available these days, fresh and frozen and so much more reasonably priced then they used to be, it’s a much more affordable splurge. And this Easy Mixed Berry Crisp is so worth it. It’s super simple but the berry flavor is outstanding.
I’m going to call this recipe for Sheetpan Strawberry Shortcake the last “hurrah” of summer. And you’ll notice I didn’t just stop at Strawberries for this shortcake and tossed on a few blueberries and raspberries, too. Really you can use any berries or for that matter, whatever fruit you think might be good on it!
Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards, and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, these are Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.
If you want to feel like you’ve died and gone to heaven, make this White Chocolate Raspberry Bread Pudding with Amaretto White Chocolate Sauce. Seriously. Well, maybe you’ll want to skip the “died” part and just have heaven on earth. This is a want to lick your plate clean dessert perfect for any special occasion and fabulous for a special holiday like Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s Eve/Day.
