I’ve expressed my love of the Pacific Northwest and it’s amazing summer berries a lot here at Real Housemoms, but I’m gonna do it again!  They’re EVERYWHERE!!!  So with that being said, I have to use them while they’re here.  I just love that I can walk right around the corner from my house and they’re growing like weeds, beautiful, delicious weeds.  My youngest little guy was with me this last time and I think he thought Mom went crazy.  I was just picking berries from the side of the road.  I had to explain that they were the same as the berries they were selling in the grocery store and his mind was blown!

S’mores have to be one of the best summer flavors!  Ooey, gooey chocolate with graham crackers and toasted warm marshmallows, mmmmmmmmmmmm.  My parents have a firepit in their backyard and when we visit that’s the only dessert that they want.   Of course that’s not including the ice cream sandwiches that Tate (what they call my Mom) gives them during the day!  When we get to town my mom already has a big package of chocolate bars, lots and lots of graham crackers and big, giant marshmallows and the sticks to roast them on.  It’s nice to sit around the fire and talk and eat.  When we get home though we don’t have a firepit so roasting marshamllows is not as easy.  I’ve gotten my s’mores fix in with a few different desserts that I’ve shared like these Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup S’mores Bars but I can always use more.

Apple Pie Ice Cream

 There’s not much better than apple pie a la mode except to combine the two in Apple Pie Ice Cream!

When I think of summer time desserts I always think of apple pie.  I think because we kick off summer with Memorial Day (a patriotic holiday), then celebrate the Fourth of July (obviously patriotic) and then finish summer up with Labor Day (a celebration of the American worker).  I mean, how are you getting going to get more American than Apple pie?  I absolutely love apple pie with a big, giant scoop of vanilla ice cream.   I love my Mom’s apple pie but I’ll share that with you all later, this is my ice cream version of her pie and it’s so good!

Sometimes you want a warm, fruity dessert, topped with crispy, buttery sugary goodness.  Sometimes you want all that without a lot of work.  That’s when a classic blackberry crumble comes in handy.  I think that there are some desserts that we forget about.  It’s not that crumbles aren’t deliciously amazing, they are.  I’m not sure why, but it happens.  Then I want dessert and I want it fast and I remember.  Taking that first bite with the warm berries and they crispy top is so fantastic!

 I have received product/compensation related to Envy Apples to use for #LoveNZFruit.  As always though, all opinions stated are my own and I only work with brands that I love.

Apple Pie is perfect for celebrating Fourth of July!  I mean can you get more American than Apple Pie?   These Apple Pie Bites with Caramel Dipping Sauce are so good!  I had friends over for dinner and cards and we shared these goodies.  Shared is a nice word for fighting to eat more than the next person, and get as many as we could before they were gone, politely.    At one point my friend TJ grabbed the last one and asked her husband if he wanted it.  Like a good husband he said, “No, you can have it.  I’ve been trained that’s the right answer.”   We had a lot of fun and ate a lot of pie.
