Saturday Seven, 16.

Saturday Seven on with recipes for Strawberry Bread, Fruit Tart, Berry Smoothies, S'mores Brownie Pie, and more!

Greetings from sunny Mexico! I’m currently in Riviera Maya soaking up the rays with friends. We’re vacationing at an all-inclusive resort for only a few nights after a long winter spent inside. Kicking off the summer the best way, right? Cheers.
