Got Mulberries? 3 Mulberry Recipe Ideas!

Mulberry Recipe Ideas

Around here one of the surest signs of summer is when one of the kids comes back into the house with a purple face and purple hands! That is when I know the mulberry tree is loaded with ripe fruit and summer has arrived! So here are my Mulberry Recipe Ideas.

Got mulberries then you need a mulberry recipe

Mulberry Recipe Ideas

I love that my kids will always have the memory of climbing into the mulberry tree and eating their fill of berries in the warm sunshine. I love eating them myself. Usually eating berries from the tree is about all we ever get to do with the berries. There have not been an abundance of berries in year’s past. But for some reason, the mulberry tree this year is loaded with berries. Big beautiful black mulberries! More than we could ever eat! So I tried to figure out what to do with all these berries. First I attempted to make jam. Let’s just say that did not turn out the way I expected. Moving on…everyone I talked to about mulberry recipes suggested that I make muffins. So I dug my favorite muffing recipe out and gave it a shot! Yes! Success!

Mulberry recipe, mulberries are perfect for muffins

The muffins were moist and delicious with just the right amount of sweetness. In fact, they were so good I made 3 more batches and will freeze them for an easy breakfast all summer long!

Mulberry muffins

I am sharing my favorite all time muffin recipe. You can make any variety of muffins starting with this basic recipe. For the mulberry recipe I reduced the amount of fruit to 1 cup. Mulberries are bigger than my typical add ins (blueberries or chocolate chips) amd they also have more seeds.

Basic Muffin Recipe:

How to Make Fourth of July Decorations

The 4th of July is probably my favorite holiday! Family from all over the East Coast gathers in PA at my mom’s place for the whole weekend. We have a giant cookout, volleyball games, water balloon battles, and of course we watch fireworks. Every year I try to bring a gift for my mom! She is a very special lady and her hospitality goes above and beyond so I just want to give her a little something to say thanks and I love you! I usually try to make it something she can use for her 4th of July gathering. This year I made her some 4th of July decors centerpieces for her table. I am so pleased with the way they turned out. I am sharing the directions for making my easy 4th of July crafts so you can give it a try.

I love Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches but I don’t love all the carbs that come with the bread. I had seen recipes similar to the one I have created and I thought I would give it a try only instead of baking my Philly Cheesesteak stuffed green peppers in the oven I decided to cook them on the grill.
