    Hi Mary, I always love your “round-up” posts as they give me a chance to visit all the wonderful ideas you share. I have made your berry caprese bruschetta and the berry skillet (both delicious!) and next I’m determined to make that beautiful angel food layered cake. Thanks for all the inspiration. I can’t believe Memorial Day is here either! Linda

    Mary you certainly know how to do red white and blue! I have pinned several things to my Memorial Day weekend board, I especially want to make the Berry Layer Cake, it’s such a show stopper! Thank you for all the red white and blueberry ideas!

    I love when you give us a quick and easy reference guide for the upcoming holidays, Mary. The skillet berry cobbler and the individual trifles are calling my name. I did make an angel food cake (from a mix) the other day, and froze half of it to make something with. Now I have an idea!!

    I have been swooning all the way down your post. I am hungry now! So pretty too.
    I think I could eat the entire triffle.

    Wish I was noshing on the watermelon and cheese platter while sipping a little something-something right now Mary! And I agree, how did we get to the middle of May already? Especially since it’s been so cool I still don’t even have the screens in my windows! Bet summer comes in like a lion this year:@)

    Oh, Mary, they all look SO delish! Have pinned several. Especially the angel food cakes ones, with the lemon curd and all the berries. But I also like the chocolate chip cookie with the berries star. Will be trying these between Memorial day, the 4th of July and on into Labor Day! YUM! Thank you!!
