There are a lot of things to love about June but one of my favorites is that it is finally berry season! I am a fairly equal opportunity fruit eater but give me a fresh pint of raspberries or a bowl of plump, just picked strawberries and I will eat the entire thing every single time. There is just nothing like fresh berries at the height of the season. My four year old son is also a berry lover and on the days when he eats an entire container of organic blueberries by himself I am grateful for Costco and their amazing organic fruit options! Since my personal fridge is currently filled to the brim with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries, I thought a collection of berry themed recipes might be just the thing for this week’s Good Food Reads. I hope you enjoy a few of these treats this weekend!
Berries don’t need much in the way of adornment, particularly when it comes to breakfast, but I love the idea of this Easy Blueberry Lavendar Chia Jam on some fresh bread or toast to start the day.
I know my fruit loving little guy would enjoy these Blueberry, Melon, Feta Fruit Salad Stacks . I love the idea of some salty feta to counter the sweet berries!
When lunch time comes around, give this Strawberry Caprese Farro Salad or these Mini Cornmeal Cakes with Whipped Mascarpone and Fresh Berries a try. They would be perfect for a girls lunch or an afternoon tea as well.
And not to forget dinner, why not give this Pulled Pork with Cherry Chipotle BBQ Sauce a chance this weekend? The cherries are fantastic right now!
Since it’s Friday, I couldn’t post without including a cocktail: Blackberry Lilac Mojito. Perfect for a hot summer night.
And…because it wouldn’t be Good Food Reads without some serious dessert options:
Let us know what you make this weekend! We’d love to hear from you. Find us on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tell us what you’ve loved from Good Food Reads.
