Triple Berry Crumble

Berry season is almost here and I got a jump start with this simple and delicious crumble recipe. I had stocked up when I was at Costco the other week and bought strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – all of my kids favorite fruits. They ate a good amount of them, but I had some that I needed to use up before they went bad. You could easily replace the fresh fruit with frozen if berries are not in season.

The crumble was delicious. The berries cooked down to make a jam like substance and the top was crispy and sweet. It was perfect warmed in the microwave and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. A perfect way to wrap up a barbecue dinner.

Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars

Blueberries are just starting to be in-season and I can’t wait to make more recipes with blueberries. I picked up a pint of fresh berries from a local farm stand and they were delicious. I’m hoping my husband’s grandfather invites us to his house to pick blueberries this year. We’ve been able to go in the past and have picked gallons of berries that have lasted me months.

These cheesecake bars were delicious! The blueberry swirl breaks up the rich and creamy cheesecake.

Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cake

School is coming to an end. Sports are slowing down. The primary election is over. Time to get back into the kitchen!

I’m slowly easing my way back in and made this delicious cake over the weekend. It’s light and fluffy, has a hint of lemon and the fresh blueberries were perfect. The cake is not too sweet, so it really is the perfect way to start your day.

This is going to be my go-to recipe whenever I need to use any type of berries or stone fruit. I bet this cake would be delicious with peaches. I can’t way to try it later this summer.

Blueberry Ricotta Coffee Cake

I haven’t baked a cake in a couple of weeks … maybe even months … and it was time to get back into the kitchen. I’ve been trying to be good and not have too many sweets around the house, but I’m so glad I made this cake. It was also nice to spend a little one-on-one time with my daughter. It’s been a rough couple of weeks with her – just the usual preteen stuff. Tantrums. Stopping up the stairs and door slamming. Making her life miserable. Needless to say, it’s been a bit stressful as she’s growing and learning about herself. Luckily, I caught her on a good day and she was back to her normal “happy, go-lucky” self. Hopefully that continues more!

The cake was amazing – the blueberries, cinnamon-sugar swirl and a moist cake. Plus you can’t forget the crumb topping. It was great to eat right out of the oven with a cup of coffee.
