It's been pretty crazy over here. After a busy week of houseguests, birthday celebrations, and other grown-up things that come with turning 30, I've been a bit quite here on the blog. Now that things are getting back to normal and the weather has been a bit grey out, I knew I had to get back down to business.
I've been hoarding summer berries over here like a mad woman. A couple weeks ago it was these raspberry gems, but today it is all about strawberries. I honestly can't seem to get enough of 'em. Every time I go to the grocery store and see ripe, organic strawberries on sale, I must buy some.
After my week long "stay-cation" while we had friends visiting, I've been itching to get back to baking. I wanted to make something simple and conventional to share with you all. I chose this oldie but goodie, a cake roll recipe. A Berries and Cream Cake Roll, to be exact. It's fun, whimsical, nostalgic - literally all wrapped up in one. With a combination of freshly chopped strawberries and a bit of strawberry preserves, the berries and cream filling is just what summer needs. Skip all the fancy tricks and decorated with nothing other than more beautiful, fresh berries.
