This summer I’ve been obsessed with Crumbles. The berries, and topping. The way it crunches in your mouth. Oh and lets not forget the creamy goodness you get from the vanilla ice cream piled on top. Bursting with flavor and easy to make everyone needs to get themselves into the kitchen and make a crumble.
I also ordered myself some new cookbooks for inspiration, and to get cooking again. Sarah Copeland has been on the top of my list for some time. She just released her third cookbook, and I couldn't be more thrilled. I pre ordered it. Which was a first for me. But, I couldn't resist! Anticipating her book I felt like I was a child at Christmas Morning and of course I dove right in. Her recipes are simple, but have an elegant flare. She has me cooking again, which makes you feel so good inside to share recipes with the ones you love. So I had a million berries in the kitchen and decided to make her crumble. AND it the recipe held its own! Everyone went back for seconds, total hit. Her original recipe called for rhubarb, but I didnt want to make a second trip to the market so I used all the berries in the house I had!
Now, I’m sharing her recipe. The next time you think about a new cook book you should go get yourself a copy of Everyday IS Saturday! It will change your life.
NOW Let's get cooking!
NOTE: This recipe was adapted from an original Sarah Copeland Recipe ( All Rights Reserved). Few things were changed do to lack of rhubarb in the kitchen. As well as adding my own preferred twist. For more of sarah’s original recipes Purchase Everyday is Saturday.
