I am kind of sad that the weekend is over and it is back to the "real" world tomorrow. It was a fun weekend with a porch sale, party or picnic everyday. We have definately eaten too much wonderful food.
Since going back to work full time, I cherish these long weekends and days off with the kids.
It was one of our most fun weekends. We feel very lucky to be blessed with great family, wonderful neighbors and fantastic friends!
I wanted to share some of the fun recipes we made with berries....
1 pkg cream cheese softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons maple syrup
Mix and chill
Serve with your choice of fruit
(I cheated and used the refrigerated pie dough)
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix filling ingredients together and pour into pie crust.
Lay second piece of pie dough over filling.
Press moistened edges of dough together and crimp edges.
Cut slits on top to vent.
Place pie in oven, then reduce heat to 375 degrees.
Bake until crust is golden and juices are bubbling, approx. 50 minutes.
Let cool on wire rack.
(recipe adapted from Everyday Food, June 2010)
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
(we honestly don't measure the vanilla...we just pour)
Miss Sarah has become the queen of making whip cream.
She no longer needs my help.
Actually I was told to leave her alone....
gosh she sounds like someone else I know! LOL!
We made 3 strawberry pies this weekend! You can find the recipe Here!
It is so much fun when we adjust our cooking and
recipes to the fruits that are in season.
We are excited for peaches next!
Peach cobbler I can smell it baking already!
