I love summer vegetables and summer fruit. Not only do they always instantly remind me of the warm summer months, but they rarely require that you do anything to them for them to be delicious. Fresh cherries are rarely better than right out of the bowl. A zucchini sliced up and lightly sauteed or thrown on the grill? Delicious. I usually feel like it is best to keep summer foods as simple as possible. Plus, who wants to turn on the stove when it’s this hot?
Recently, in our CSA, we received a lot of raspberries. I love raspberries. I love love love raspberries. They are completely perfect on their own. However, in order to keep me from simply eating them all on their own in one sitting (and I know that I am perfectly capable of doing just that) I decided to dress them up a bit.
Pudding? Check. Pile of raspberries? Check. Dessert, breakfast, and snack? Check.
