berry picking

On one particularly beautiful morning in August, we went berry picking.

We drove out to a farm near our old house in Pike Lake called Rhodes’. They offered black currants, raspberries, and Saskatoon berries. Although we went a little late in the season, we were still able to find a great selection of berries.

It was so beautiful out there. We were able to grab enough to eat and freeze in just over an hour.

The kids had a lot of fun, which made it such an enjoyable (and productive) experience. I’m almost positive that next summer, we will be returning to the same place.

simple valentine’s day trifles

Makes 2 servings

This is an extremely quick and easy treat to make for that special someone on Valentine’s Day. It is a dessert that won’t break the bank, nor will it cut into your already precious time. Place in champagne flutes for a special touch. It is impossible to mess up this recipe, and it is certified to be paid back in even sweeter kisses.

Simple Valentine’s Day Trifles

Ingredients:

¾ cups raspberries, fresh
½ cups Oreos, broken
Whipped cream

Steps:

1. Start by measuring the ingredients. You will need approximately five Oreos to amount to ½ cup of crushed cookies. Once the raspberries and cookies have been prepared, set aside.

2. Using the champagne flutes, fill each one with ¼ of the crushed Oreos. Place ¼ of the raspberries on top. Then add whipped cream. This should take you to the halfway point in the flute. Repeat once more. Then top with leftover crushed Oreos, and refrigerate until you are ready to serve.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
