Food Friday: Berries and Cream

IMG_3380

It is that time of year again. Sweet berries are filling my local farmer's market and I am ecstatic. Last weekend I purchased my first batch of raspberries and ate the entire container in one day. It was glorious! This week, I whipped up heavy whipping cream and enjoyed it with fresh blueberries and raspberries. This is my go to dessert for guests because it is delicious, easy and elegant.

Even though we are supposed to get snow tomorrow (yes, in California!), my berry treats make me feel like spring is in the air!
