Berry Delicious

I would say that I have more of a savory tooth than a sweet tooth. If I had to choose between fries or a shake, the salty fries would prevail. But, I do love dessert when it is fresh, simple, and a little bit decadent. Enter Giada's Berries with Mascarpone.

I knew I was meant to make (and eat) this dish when I realized we had all but one of the ingredients on hand (we didn't have meringue cookies to crumble on top, but I'm not a huge fan of meringue anyway, so no biggie).

Don't let the humble appearance fool you. The simple, harmonious balance of fresh fruit and luxurious cream makes this a dessert to behold. Perfectly ripe berries + cinnamon-kissed cream = a luscious delight. 

Next time you're in the mood for something berry delicious, give this a try...I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Happy Searching,

p.s. The recipe calls for whipping the cream and then folding it into the mascarpone. I was too impatient for this step and just whipped it all together with a whisk. Still yummy!


  1. Definitely delicious, and normally not my taste for dessert. A perfect sweet nibble after a rich dinner.

  2. I thought I was being creative putting strawberries (from the Italian market) in our salad last night. You always take it to a whole other level. Yum yum

  3. I LOVE strawberries in salad...such a refreshing twist!

  4. You have ALWAYS loved "Strawbabies" (as Jen would say when she was little), so I am not surprised that you would love this dish. You make it sound good enough to run out and get all the ingredients for this luscious dessert. I'm on my way.......MAMA B

  5. Please make mine a double!! I will need an extra spoon for your Dad!!!
