There are few things in the world more perfect than the raspberry. They symbolize summer to me. Plump, juicy, flavorful, and a beautiful rosy red color. My parents grew raspberries in our backyard when my brother and I were growing up, and I'll confess- I spent a lot of time hunkered down in those raspberry bushes. My mom would freeze raspberries, make raspberry syrup for pancakes, and bake raspberry cobblers in the oven. She would keep large bowls of raspberries in the fridge, and they went on everything from my cereal to my bowl(s) of vanilla ice cream.
Now that I'm an adult, my lust for the raspberry has not abated. I would cook or bake everything (well, almost everything) with raspberries if the hubby wouldn't start to question my sanity. I do love to cook with them though- that means I get to eat whatever I put them in. Here's a few of my favorite raspberry recipes:
|Raspberry Filled Vanilla Muffins|
|Raspberry Banana Oat Muffins|
|Raspberry Filled Mini-Doughnuts|
|Raspberry Lemonade Muffins|
|Chewy Chocolate Raspberry Cookies|
|Brownie Bites with Raspberry Sauce- Hardly Housewives|
|Raspberry Crisp- Pioneer Woman|
|Raspberry Lemonade Bars- Annie's Eats|
|Raspberry Bread Pudding- Chef In Training|
|Raspberry Mint Ice Pops- Cooking Light|
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
