Sour Cream Raspberry Pie

Sour Cream Raspberry Pie

This sour cream raspberry pie is the perfect combination of flavors and textures.  Eat it warm or cold! We planted raspberries in our garden for the first time this year.  The first year your harvest is not very big and each visit to the new plants to see how they are doing yields a small handful of raspberries which promptly get eaten.  Not really enough to do much with other than just eat and enjoy.  But I can’t wait until next year when they really produce.  We’ve got some new [Continue Reading…]

Raspberry and Blueberry Crisp

One thing the Northwest does right is berries! You name it – we’ve got it. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, marionberries, tayberries and even loganberries. And I know there are more I haven’t even named. My oldest son’s name is Logan – I teased my husband I wanted to name him after my father Barrie – therefore he would have been Logan Barrie (loganberry) He didn’t go for it! Yesterday I shared a fun Mason Jar Picnic idea and the dessert I took on the picnic was today’s recipe for Raspberry [Continue Reading…]

I’ve got lots of fun berry recipes coming up. But if you have already forgotten, I am sharing dinner recipes this week that can be made from a rotisserie chicken – quick and easy summer [Continue Reading…]

Raspberry Cream Cupcakes

Raspberry Cream Cupcakes

  I first made today’s recipe a few years ago for a woman’s event at church.  We made about 200 of these little pretties. I had actually almost forgotten about them until I decided to clean out my massive recipe collection (pile) last week and I found it.  I knew immediately that they would be perfect for Valentine’s Day.  I also decided to make them for my YHM101 Class I held this week at my home.  The women loved them and I promised the recipe!
