Summer Berries
About this Cook
I love food. Eating it, making it, smelling it, looking at it, thinking about it.
My favorite things to cook
I love making soup and anything that comes straight from my garden into my kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I are starting a new tradition. We are gathering berries in the summer, mashing them, freezing them and then making jam at Thanksgiving to give away as gifts for the holiday season. I love it when my mom makes egg pancakes, a recipe she learned from her grandfather. I really should learn how to make them.

Raspberry Pie I
This was my first fresh berry pie and it was fabulous. Maybe because I picked the berries myself:) *Note to all the virgin pie makers - put a pan under the pie to catch the juices that will spill out during cooking - or put a piece of foil under the pie.* I didn't dry the raspberries after washing and I added water so it was pretty runny in the baking process. It was great after it cooled for 12 hours. Yum!

Savory Crescent Chicken
Yum - This was really great and fast. I used two 6 oz. packages of pre-cooked chicken and it turned out great. There was a little chicken mixture leftover so I heated in the microwave and ate it with tortilla chips - Yum!

Gobble Up Granola Snacks
These are great! I used agave nectar instead of corn syrup (lower glycemic index). Yum!
