grilled berries with brandy...

Because it's Friday.
Because we have two days until we
celebrate our nations independence.
Because most of us are relaxing
with a three day weekend.
Because I love you.

I give you this...

This is it.
It doesn't get any more American than this.
Who doesn't love vanilla ice cream topped with warm
berries in a sweet, buttery sauce?
It just melts in your mouth... mmmmmm.

Start with about 2 cups of fresh berries. Strawberries,
blueberries, raspberries, blackberries... whatever you
have will do. Fire up your grill or stove top.
Sprinkle about 2/3 cup of sugar over the berries.

Add about 2 tablespoons butter.

And about 1/4 cup Brandy... Amen.
But you could totally skip the brandy part if you're not a sinner like me.

Warm, stir, warm stir, give a good shake.
Total time on grill... about 7 to 10 minutes.

Let cool for a few minutes and serve over ice cream.

*Side note- You could totally to this with apples,
peaches and pears too.

I also think it makes a nice sidekick to this.


“That’s why I stand here tonight. Because for two hundred and thirty two years, at each moment when that promise was in jeopardy, ordinary men and women – students and soldiers, farmers and teachers, nurses and janitors — found the courage to keep it alive.”
