The past few days, my cooking and baking has been at a minimum. With all the fresh produce available this time of year, we have been eating lots of salads and raw fruits, because when food is this fresh, it tastes so good in its most natural state. Raspberries, blueberries, and cherries are in season right now, and they are some of the most flavorful fruits! This is the time of year to be outside as much as possible, and to let go of the schedule as much as possible. Sometimes the best recipe is no recipe at all, but just eating raspberries right from the bush, or stopping along the road at a stand that says “washed sweet cherries,” and eating the sweet, juicy cherries right there in the car.
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer, and I will be back soon with a recipe to share! I have been working on my favorite pico de gallo recipe, but it still needs some work, much to my son’s and husband’s pleasure in testing each batch.
