Afternoon Berries

Berries are one of my favorites.

...............Photobucket
By themselves, baked in cakes, piled on top of icecream, placed over a slather of ricotta cheese on toast... berries are always a welcome treat.

I've been eating a lot of chocolate desserts lately, but was really craving something homey and berry-sweet, so I dropped everything and made some little Strawberry Rhubarb Bakes. Afterwards, I got a little camera-happy taking pictures of all the lovely berries, and my cute little desserts.

How do you like your berries? Plain? Baked? Do tell!

(PS. My Farmer's Market Fete is featured here at Dandelion and Grey. Stop by and check it out!)

I wonder why I always always forgot to snap snap and have a camera-happy moment right after I cook... hahaha... I always eat anything right after I make them, duh...

and I love berries, any kind of way, be it fresh, or backed, or even only being a decoration on top of a cake... or ice cream... oh no... now I'm craving for some strawberry sundae... o.o

Oh wow, that strawberry rhubarb bake looks divine! I personally prefer berries in cakes and bakes. Not so big on them fresh, unless it's Blueberries :)

I like my berries any way I can get them. But during the winter I buy organic frozen and keep my freezer crammed full. When I'm needing a berry treat I pour a bowlful and cover in milk. The milk immediately freezes up and I have an ice cream-like treat!

I love them fresh...with a bit of vanilla ice cream or coolwhip! I also love them frozen and blended into a smoothie with some yogurt and assorted fruits. I love fresh fruit.
