Taking stock of summer produce at your local farmers’ market is a seasonal virtue we tout in our August e-book as one of many ways to have a well-crafted summer, and in that respect, berries certainly fit the bill. These ten recipes, courtesy of our friends at Bite Me More, will have you grinning from ear-to-ear, berry-stained teeth and all.

Think of this as a healthy take on white chocolate bark – but with honey, lemon and pistachio as delicious add-ins, you may never go back to the real thing.
You may need a napkin to wipe up your drool: this smooth and creamy blueberry cheesecake consists of a buttery graham cracker crust topped with a silky cheesecake filling and sweet blueberry sauce (we did warn you!).
Chances are you’ve had blueberry muffins – but have you had them with a crumble?
The night-before prep makes this deluxe French toast recipe totally worth it: you’ll be glad you waited for the sweet egg bread to soak up every last drop of buttery overnight goodness (then complemented by a deadly cream cheese and strawberry jam mixture).
There’s a reason you can count this crisp recipe among the classics – the combination of crunchy oat topping and sweet fruit filling never gets old.
Every forkful of this fresh salad makes for a perfect bite: a fork crammed with crisp lettuce, strawberries and sugared almonds.
This dessert emphasizes the importance of adding fruit into our diets. Fresh strawberries (fruit #1) are nestled between layers of vanilla cake and creamy vanilla frosting, all coated in shredded coconut (another fruit)!
Meringue nests, with crisp exteriors and soft, light interiors, are packed with a homemade, sweet raspberry filling and finished with an airy pillowy topping.
These crowd pleasing cupcakes are a deadly combination of Raspberry Iced Tea, raspberry jam and white chocolate, resulting in the perfect bite after bite after bite…
