The warm weather season wouldn’t be complete without these Summer Berry Shortcakes with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream. It’s the quintessential summer dessert!
It’s been a long few months and I need a little sweetness in my life right now. I was browsing my dessert recipes this morning and I remembered it’s shortcake season. This colorful Summer Berry Shortcake recipe popped into my head and I decided I needed to share it today.
Not only am I sharing this tasty little recipe, but I thought I’d give you an update on all the Bennett shenanigans (wink wink).
As most of you know, my book will be released on September 1st! I’m busy working on organizing some fun activities to promote the book. In this time of Covid, it seems a bit daunting. However, I’ve got a stellar publicity team and they’re doing a great job assisting me with this endeavor.
Recipe demo’s and lively conversation with other bloggers and cookbook authors are at the top of the list. If I can’t meet people in person, I’ll just meet everyone online! I also thought some free virtual cooking classes would be fun. I used to teach cooking classes for home cooks and I truly miss it. So stay tuned for some exciting virtual events to come!
On the home front, my oldest gal moved back to Oregon! She graduated nursing school last year and has been working as a nurse in New Mexico. A few weeks ago she decided to take a job as a hospice nurse and is happy to be living an hour away. Can you see me doing the Mama happy dance?
My youngest gal is still in Northern California and she’s feeling grateful for her job. She misses home, but I think this new experience has been quite an adventure for her. Especially now during these unusual times. She also rescued the cutest little mixed breed pup named Tao. If you want to see all the adorable cuteness, she created an Instagram page just for him. You can find it HERE.
Now back to all things food related. This summer, I created six luscious blueberry recipes for the Oregon Blueberry Commission. It’s blueberry season here in Oregon and the month of July is also National Blueberry Month. So, if you want to get your blueberry fix, head on over to the Oregon Blueberry Commission website to find loads of enchanting blueberry recipes.
With all the sweet and beautiful berries we grow here in Oregon, this Summer Berry Shortcake with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream happens every year. I’ve paired these berries with a classic shortcake which is much like a sweet biscuit or scone. The berries are tossed with a little brown sugar and the entire dessert is then topped with a light and fluffy vanilla bean whipped cream.
It’s truly a classic dessert that never goes out of style!
My hope is that this post finds you and your family doing well, happy and healthy! These are some strange times but please know my heart is with you and I send loads of light and love your way!
