Driscoll's Berry Giveaway + {Berry Cobbler w/Kahlua}

I love it when great things happen without even trying.  It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou--- "You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off of you."      I love blogging. I love creating nourishing recipes. I love photographing beautiful food. And it seems people are noticing. Recently Driscoll's reached out to me after they saw my Strawberry Pesto Pizza recipe online, and asked if I'd be interested in creating a new recipe using their berries to pair with a giveaway.  Without hesitation, I said yes!

Introducing {Berry Cobbler} with a Kahlua reduction sauce:

Simmering the berries in a mixture of Kahlua, coconut sugar, and vanilla brings such a unique taste to this dessert.  Any possible tartness from the berries is wiped away and replaced with a smooth, rich, sweetness.

And what makes this dessert so fabulous (besides the Kahlua, of course...LOL)?  The Driscoll's Berries!       I used 6 cups of assorted organic berries: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries!

Top with a generous scoop of french vanilla ice cream, and you will instantly arrive at dessert bliss.

Filled with antioxidants and nourishing add-ins, you don't even have to feel guilty about taking another bite.
