Picking Blackberries with my sweetie, Benny was a treat in of itself. We got to sneak out while the boys were still sleeping in. I used Nigella Lawson’s recipe for Raspberry Crisp in her book here. Some of my favorite inspirations are found within this book. Blackberries were delicious! I love the mix of a picked bunch of tangy and sweet berries. With the sugar and oats, this crisp was decadent paired with some vanilla bean ice cream.
My son and his friend really enjoyed the berry treats after a fun, one-on-one game of basketball in the front yard. We are definitely loving making Camas, Washington home. The people are so friendly… there’s so much for the kids to do around town.
We feel really lucky to have such an awesome place to raise our kids and thrive!
Katie girl is ready for picking blackberries too! She’s always up for an adventure! Here are some of the sights on our local Camas trails. Amazing!
