July is National Berry Month + GIVEAWAY


It may be nearing the end of July but here in Michigan, the berries are just now ready to be picked. July is National Berry Month and I have teamed up with Driscoll's to share with you some of the benefits of berries.

Dexter really loves blueberries and I can lure him to his highchair just by mentioning berries! He loves them. He is now a fan of raspberries and blackberries. I had to bite the berries in half in order to get him to taste their sweetness. He started by just licking them and looked at me like, "what?!" Too cute.

There are so many options when cooking with berries. You can make blueberry pancakes, smoothies or even this scrumptious goat cheese and strawberry bruschetta. I had a field day looking through all the recipes on Driscoll's website!!

Thanks to Driscoll's I will be able to buy a few extra pints of their luscious berries. They sent me a few coupons for $5 off their products!! I would love to give a few of my readers the opportunity to win one of these coupons too. All you have to do is head over to Driscoll's and find your favorite recipe. Come back here and tell me that recipe and you are entered! Three readers will each win a coupon good for $5 off a package of Driscoll's berries. That makes them better than free at Meijer!! Don't forget to include your email address along with your comment. GOOD LUCK!
