It’s berry season! Berries are officially my favorite dessert fruit, so when early summer rolls around and bright, beautiful, fresh berries are abundant, I stock up and start cooking. I ran across this super simple Raspberry Cream Tart from Midwest Living magazine, and I knew this was the perfect time to give it a try.
The dessert looks perfectly summery and elegant, but putting it together is a breeze, and it gets a little (delicious) help from a convenient grocery store staple…

It’s that time of year again! Berry season! My fridge is consistently stocked with fresh berries this time of year. So, when The Daily Meal asked me if I’d like to enter their Driscoll’s Berries #RaspberryDessert recipe contest, I figured there couldn’t be a better time!

This dinner was delicious, and so simple to throw together that we had it on a weeknight! From start to finish, it can be done in less than thirty minutes.
This also means that this would be a great Fall dish to entertain with, because you could spend most of your entertaining time with the people you’re entertaining!
