Fresh from the Garden

I love living in the country!

Having a garden is such an amazing blessing.

I love being able to go and harvest the ripest and juciest berries, instead of using the almost flavourless store-bought raspberries. (Sorry for the stained fingers!)

And best of all, I love to create tasty desserts using the freshest produce I can get!

 Plum and Raspberry Pie:

Juicy, sweet and a little tart. This deserves an encore...
