The ultimate summer fruit cobbler filled with peaches, plums, cherries, blueberries and raspberries.

Ultimate Summer Fruit Cobbler

All of the credit for this fabulous summer dessert goes to a reader, Diana, who commented on a facebook question I posted asking for summer recipe requests. She replied:

“The ultimate summer fruit cobbler. Maybe peaches…blackberries. And not the shortcut one where they tell you to use bisquick- yuck! One with a real topping made from scratch. Would love to see that!”

Well here you are, Diana. This is the ultimate summer fruit cobbler, filled with all the fresh fruit and berries of the season and topped with a from-scratch (but still easy!) buttermilk cake-like crust.

Blackberry Mango Crisp

I’ve been on a mango kick lately. They’re beautiful and cheap at my grocery store right now and I can’t seem to get enough. I enjoy mangoes mostly on their own or in a smoothie, but a mango crisp recipe has been brewing in the back of my mind for months. When a box of mangoes landed on my doorstep, pushing my household mango supply over the edge, I knew it was time to give one a try.

Rhubarb Ricotta Crisp

Right now I’m lying on the couch, in between naps, willing our little boy to make his grand entrance. I’m not sure it’s working.

While yesterday was productive, filled with grocery shopping and cleaning and organizing, it’s all I can do to just stay awake today. Thankfully I have one of the easiest recipes to share with you. One thing I will say about pregnancy is that it has inspired some amazing desserts, and this is one of them, a simple rhubarb crisp with sweetened ricotta baked right in.
