Who doesn’t love fresh summer berries? They’re perfect for bite-size snacking or as the star in delectable desserts like this Strawberry Honey Crisp recipe.
I love rooftop get-togethers with friends. They’re a great way to get in some girl talk and enjoy a night outside. These get-togethers have been happening a lot this summer on Jordan’s fabulous rooftop. We all bring some protein to grill, some veggies to munch on, a bottle of wine, and something sweet for dessert. Unfortunately our latest get-together was to celebrate one of my best friends getting an awesome new job. While I’m so happy for her this new job is hours away in Iowa. And she’s leaving us in less than a month. 🙁 Sad news calls for something sweet!
The berry crisp had a little extra sweetness thanks to Nektar Honey Crystals. I love cooking with honey because of the rich flavor it brings to a dish. (Especially on fruits!) Unfortunately, measuring out honey can quickly turn a kitchen into a sticky mess. When Nektar Honey Crystals reached out to me and told me about their dry honey crystals that offer the taste of honey with the convenience of cane sugar I was pretty excited. I couldn’t wait to get baking!
