Y’all, raise your hand if you love recipes that double as breakfast and dessert! My hand just shot up with yours. I mean, I’m literally the type of person that will eat it for every meal and then face the sad moment when I’m down to the last bite. That’s basically how I felt about this berry crisp recipe.
It started out as a dessert… wait, let’s backtrack. I had to eat the bowl I shot below. So I guess that was an afternoon snack. Then dessert. Then breakfast. Turns out my hubby isn’t the biggest fan of berry crisp (crazy, I know!)… but honestly, I wasn’t hurt by it. More for me!
Now, I’m really good at following recipes but not very good at creating them. That’s where Sally comes in. Sally’s cookbook, Sally’s Baking Addiction, is where I get about 90% of my dessert recipes from, including the berry crisp recipe. And lucky for you, she also has an amazing blog where she shares loads of baked good recipes. Do yourself a favor and peruse that blog when you’re planning your next dinner party. You will not be disappointed. (Not an ad, I don’t know Sally, though I wish I did… just love, love, LOVE her recipes).
This fruit crisp recipe is almost the same as the recipe in her cookbook. Instead of fresh peaches and blueberries, I used frozen mixed berries.
Remember when I mentioned taking a food photography course awhile back? Hands down one of the best choices ever. Here’s why:
- It combines two of my favorite things: photography and food. I love to try new recipes often and well, I love to eat. Win-win when you get to eat what you photograph, am I right?
- I enjoy learning something new and pushing myself through new challenges. I’ve never been great at styling flat lays and food photography has given me an opportunity to practice often and unapologetically.
- Maybe… just maybe I’ve dreamt of writing a cookbook. Even though, as I mentioned above, I’m terrible at coming up with my own recipes. Perhaps one day.
