Mac’s Munchin’ Monday #Triple Berry Crunch

This is my second time making Triple Berry Crunch after I bought a charity cookbook recently. If you’ve read my previous posts you’ll know all about my cooking skills (or lack of) but I found this deliciously simple recipe that can be used as a sweet desert or a sneaky treat after a bad day. 783 more words

I LOVE berries. Not only are they delicious, to me they are just as beautiful as flowers.  I have over 100 strawberry plants, 17 blueberry bushes, a humongous blackberry patch, (Chester thornless) and  beauteous, Heritage raspberries. 436 more words
