Very Berry Bruschetta

Very Berry Bruschetta

Bruschetta variations are common these days, inspiring me to make some of my own. My version has mixed berries and basil leaves topping cheesy toasted baguette slices. The rich cheese taste goes well with the sweet and tangy berries and the basil leaves' burst of flavor. A colorful dish, it's a perfect match with Champaign as an appetizer, with coffee or tea as a dessert, or as a great party food. They can be served room-temperature or warm.

Fruit Ravioli

Fruit Ravioli

On a hot summer's day, it's always great to have something cool, sweet, and refreshing. I have created just such a dish: fruit ravioli. It's similar to regular ravioli in that it is stuffed pasta, but it's actually a dessert because the stuffing is honey flavored cream cheese and various fruits. Served chilled, it's quite a treat.

Blue Cheese, Bacon, Strawberry, Green Salad with Strawberry Dressing

Blue Cheese, Bacon, Strawberry, Green Salad with Strawberry Dressing

The salad I have created here is just bursting with flavor. It pulls together the sharp creaminess of blue cheese, the smoky, sultry flavor of bacon, and the tartness of my original strawberry dressing. Top off some tasty greens with this combination and you have one wonderful salad.

Berry-Maple Bread Pudding

Berry-Maple Bread Pudding

A good friend of mine gave me a very cute set of measuring spoons, and as a show of appreciation and friendship to her, I created this tasty dish. It is a maple syrup egg custard with croissants and a very sweet berry sauce. With the butteriness of the croissants, the sweetness of syrup, and the slight tanginess of the berries, this is a wonderful combination. The colors of berries brighten up your table, too! This dish is great for both dessert and brunch.

Strawberry Dressing

Strawberry Dressing

Here is a delightful fruity dressing you are sure to love, especially if you like strawberries. It is a dressing made from strawberries combined with other flavors, such as balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It's very versatile and can be used to compliment anything from salad to seafood to pork.
