ABOUT Anita

Since I was a child I have anticipated berry picking season and have fond memories of hunting out the biggest, juiciest, brightest berries with my mom in our berry patch. Most of my basket of berries never made it home, but were destined for my tummy as we walked back to the kitchen to bake some fresh fruit pies. This recipes incorporates my favourite berries and frosting and can be whipped up quickly along with my two young children, yet appears classy enough for your dinner guests!
