There are a few signs that summer has officially arrived. Bright sunshine, obviously. Kids running around everywhere, free from the confines of school. Mosquitos. Longer days. Shorter pants. One of my favorites? Raspberries. We have one vine, but it isn’t exactly thriving, so fortunately I live in berry country and can pick some up just about anywhere. I think it’s time.
This Chocolate and Vanilla Gnocchi from Right at Home sounds very unique, and worth a try.
We bought some chocolate pasta in Pike Market in Seattle a few years ago. Once we got home we didn’t really know what to do with it. I ended up making a sweet white sauce for it, but I feel like I could have done a little better. This White Chocolate Mascarpone Ravioli with Raspberry Sauce from Pinch Me I’m Eating is more what I have in mind for next time.
This Whipped Raspberry Honey Butter from Simple Bites would be divine on a bagel, and you can freeze the extra.
These Chocolate Covered Raspberries from Sugar Hero take things a step further than just basic coating, adding that gooey layer you find in chocolate covered cherries.
These Probiotic Raspberry Fruit Chews from Happy Healthnut sound like a great snack.
My husband loves both raspberries and mojitos, so these Raspberry Mojitos from Heather Christo would be perfect for him.
This Raspberry from The Very Berry Trio on Hookabee is not a free pattern, but comes with two other berry buddies, and looks completely worth it to me. He even has a core under the cap!
This Stumpwork Beaded Raspberry from Sew in Love is just beautiful.
I know it’s not quite the season for these Knitted Fingerless Raspberry Gloves from nbGlovesAndMittens on Etsy yet, but it will be here before you know it. While you’re in her shop, check out her other gorgeous work.
What baby wouldn’t be just a little cuter wearing a topper made with this Raspberry Hat Crochet Pattern from Hopeful Honey?
Can’t get enough raspberries either? Check out another Friday Favorites based on the sweet berry, my Raspberry Jalapeno Cheese Tarts, Berry Colada Smoothie and Raspberry Poppy Seed Dressing and Marinade!
