June Berry Crisp

My son's and I picked a lot of berries off of our Service Berry tree a week ago.

I put them in muffins, pancakes and made a crisp that was yummy!



  • 2 cups June Berries
  • 2 cups of another kind of berry, chopped up apple or just more June Berries. I happened to use black berries this time.
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • It called for 2 sticks of butter, but I used 1 and the rest was coconut oil.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, gently toss together blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and white sugar; set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of mixture in the bottom of a glass pie dish. Cover with berries. Sprinkle remaining crumble mixture over the berries.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly and topping is golden brown.
We served ours with ice cream. Yummy! Then for breakfast I topped off plain yogurt with June Berry Crisp. It was very good!

Sandcastle Bundt Cake

I made a Sandcastle Bundt Cake last week for work.

It seemed to be a big hit at work. I think a few people thought I carved the castle out! Nope! I didn't tell them otherwise. ;) I did make the cake from scratch. You can buy the pan here.

Custom is Cool

I like things that are custom! It's fun being able to choose what goes in your food, or a product that fits your needs and wants.

One company that I really like is Chocri. It's a company where you design your own chocolate bar. They have lots to choose from. I know I'd pick dark chocolate with raspberry bits for sure!

New Age Mama is hosting a giveaway for Chocri. Ten winners will receive 3 customized bars!

The World's Most Artistic Marriage Proposal

Nordic Ware

I like making a fun breakfast for my kid's. I recently got ceramic face plates. We often decorate their plates with all different foods. They love it! It's a great way to get them to eat what you'd like for them to eat. I find myself saying, "Mica eat his hair" when it's green beans. ;)

My kids are huge breakfast eaters. I've made heart shaped pancakes. One of my favorite breakfast recipes is here.

My Organized Chaos is giving away Nordic Ware - Kitchenware Products for you Home.

The products include: Zoo Friends Pancake Pan and Pro Cast Castle Bundt Pan. I have the Pro Cast Castle Bundt Pan; it makes really cool looking cakes! My sister and I have used it for birthday parties. I would like the Zoo Friends Pancake Pan! My kid's would really love taking a bite into a zoo animal pancake!
