Summer Berry Parfait Recipe

Summer Berry Parfait

Summer gives us a beautiful harvest of many wonderful fresh fruits & veggies!

I love it when all the Strawberries & Blueberries are just at that perfect flavor & ripeness.

One of my favorites for breakfast in the summer (or any time I can get it) is something quick, healthy & easy that incorporates all those perfect summer berries!

I thought's I'd share the recipe with you all & let you enjoy the deliciousness too!

Summer Berry Parfait Recipe

4-6 Fresh Strawberries
1/4 Cup Fresh Washed Blueberries
1/2 Cup Low Fat Vanilla or Plain Yogurt
2 Tbsp All Natural Granola
Sprinkle of Cinnamon

Wash & slice Strawberries. Wash Blueberries. Add yogurt to bowl, layer in Strawberries & Blueberries, top with Granola & sprinkle Cinnamon over the top. Ta-da Done!
Spoon, eat & enjoy!

Enigma Solved!

Several years ago I found this photo of a beautiful crocheted bracelet online that I absolutely fell in love with. The photo was small, the quality wasn't that great & there was no pattern that went with it & no way to find out who had posted the photo. The image had stayed online in a search, but the website had been abandoned & taken down. *Sadness*
I have never fallen in love with something crocheted like it before & for almost 2 years I tried to figure out something similar on my own. I stared at it for hours & hours, days & days! I tried several attempts over the last couple of years to “recreate” something similar & a few times I came close but could never quite figure out “exactly” how it was done. It puzzled me & puzzled me & I could never get it to look the way I wanted & after many failed attempts I finally gave up & said it was just not meant to be.
Then one day recently, I happened to be reorganizing my room & I found the binder I had kept of things I had loved or that were just pictures for inspiration. And lo & behold the photo of the bracelet I had found a couple of years ago was in the folder! I pulled it back out & started staring at it again.
My brain started working like crazy & all of a sudden something clicked! 
I thought, “It really can’t be as simple as all of that, can it?” LOL 
So I played around with an idea & kept working with it. I tried it in a shorter version first to see if my idea would work or not. The idea worked & then all of a sudden so did the math to make it happen & before I knew it, I had a pretty close recreation of what I had in the picture! Finally the Enigma was Solved!(I love it when something just clicks & it all works out!)
I started writing & working as fast as I could & before I knew it I had the pattern all worked out & ready to send to my testers! I was so excited that I couldn't wait to share it with them & with everyone else.
So now I can finally share with all of you both my results & their's!

Thanks for coming with me on my journey to solve the Enigma!
