I have always been a berry type of pie person. My absolute favorite is raspberry. I had the over abundance of blackberries to use up that I had the luck of growing in our garden and had to make a pie with them. This came out great in flavor. If you ever have the pleasure of fresh blackberries this is a must try for you! I love the deep flavor of blackberries, a keeper for me.


Italian Baked Red Snapper Recipe

Wednesday, September 2, 2015
Red Snapper is wonderful when fresh. I am not a fan if it's been frozen but either way it's better than nothing if you can get it fresh. I enjoy it baked or fried but watching our calories this is the healthier version. Of course you could bake it with nothing sprinkled on top but vegetables, however the little bit of bread crumbs boost the flavor and makes it crunchy.
