Red White And Blueberry

Simple summer berries take center stage in a fresh dessert from Love & Lemons.

At the dinner table last week, your little one asked if you could tell him about the birds and the bees. Just as you took a deep breath and prepared to give an overly detailed explanation, he added that he was just wondering if they both lived in nests. 
 
Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one. 

Since the same can be said of summer desserts, you'll love this red, white and blue beauty from Austin vegetarian food blogger
Love & Lemons, who just released a fabulously-photographed cookbook. Dig in - but not too deep.
