Summer Berry No-Bake Greek Yogurt Pie with a Granola Cashew Crust / Patty's Food

Today I’m sharing a berry pie that you don’t have to turn on your oven to make.  That’s right, a no-bake dessert that can be made using your refrigerator which means no added heat from the oven to your already warm kitchen.  There is nothing like a heat wave the week before the 4th of […]

I think it’s time to share a salad recipe.  Grilled avocado, corn and blueberry baby kale salad with a chipotle lime vinaigrette sounds good to me.  This is a quick easy salad recipe with a lot of Summer flavors.  Don’t be afraid of grilling the avocado slices, that’s kind of fun to do using a […]

This is the last day of our two week vacation to Central Oregon or to be more precise, to Powell Butte, Oregon.  My home away from home has been at Brasada Ranch on Alfalfa Road in Powell Butte, Oregon and I guess I’m ready to return home but maybe not really.  Except for the smoky […]

Could it be possible that I’ve found a new favorite dessert?  I’m talking about a large buttery shortbread cookie spread with a thick layer of homemade lemon curd that’s piled high with fresh berries and sprinkled with lavender vanilla bean sugar.  A BFF of desserts.  Yes, I found a new favorite dessert today. Once again […]

  This pound cake made with creamy whole milk ricotta cheese not only tenderly embraces a basket of fresh blueberries in it’s rich flavored interior but also easily releases from the slightly cooled loaf pan.  A pound cake recipe made with whole milk ricotta that’s a keeper, for sure.  I will admit to being afraid […]

Very Berry Slaw / Patty's Food

I was in the mood for an easy fresh and fruity salad today.  The strawberries from San Diego at the farmer’s market this morning were calling out to me, saying both serve me with vanilla ice cream for dessert and toss me into a salad for dinner tonight.  Is this berry overload?  Impossible, the parade […]

l’m not sure if I’m the only one who likes to bake cakes in the dog days of Summer,  but when I get up early to hit the farmers market and arrive home with a bag of perfectly ripe nectarines I have this thing where I just want to put them in a cake.  Of […]

blueberry scone muffins

  I found baby blueberries at the Santa Rosa Farmers Market from a  grower out of Sebastopol who grows 10 different varieties of blueberries, of course they’re not all ripe at the same time but wouldn’t it be fun to see and taste all those different types of blueberries at once.  This morning they were […]
