I love berries, red and juicy strawberries and blue... blue.. blueberries, although when you look at blueberries  closely they have a greyish hues in them too. Magic of Summer/


I visited Lisa's blog Sweet Eat and in my guest post I shared this super easy recipe. Lisa is super amazing, and you really should check out her site.
Just so I know we are on the same page, when I say easy I mean no mixer involved. Let's bake.
