Nothing says weekend like dessert. Don’t let me fool you, I also think Wednesday or a good hair day or a Sex and the City marathon with your best friend (or yourself) is a perfectly good excuse for a dessert.

This one just screams summer with fresh local strawberries and blueberries. You could easily substitute any berry. I had actually planned on just making a blueberry crisp until I saw my strawberries needed to be used ASAP. I was very pleased with the results. It is great on it’s own but a scoop of good vanilla bean ice cream certainly wouldn’t hurt anything.
