Gooseberry Pie

I win!

I picked the gooseberries before the birds and the deer this year!

Since I don’t have quite enough for a pie, I’m adding last year’s blackberries to the gooseberries.

Add some sugar and tapioca.

Rustic yummy sweetness!

Are you enjoying the fruits of summer? 

I hope so.

Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake

I have an insatiable sweet tooth, and I’ve discovered the joy of pinning decadent recipes to a Pinterest board that I call Sweet Tooth.

Summer has arrived and the tempting raspberries are ripening.  

One of those recipes, Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes, from Annie’s Eats, is perfect for a sweet raspberry treat.

Make a graham cracker crust, add a cream cheese filling and top with fresh picked raspberries blended to a puree.

Swirl the puree and bake.

Easy and scrumptious!

The blackberries are flowering, and I’m keeping watch for more juicy, plump berries and sweet treats!

And let’s not forget the pie cherries!  I share them with the birds, but I’ll still have enough to savor!

I love summer!
