Raspberry Recipe Roundup!

A few weeks ago, I purchased a mature raspberry bush from a fellow military couple that is PCSing soon. This is usually how I acquire all my plants, and then I pass them on when it's our turn to move away. Now, normally I have a pretty black thumb. The Hubs takes care of our vegetation when he can, and then we both pray they survive the times when he's away.

My raspberry bush,
with some fruit beginning to grow! 

BUT, I'm trying really hard not to kill this bush. I really, really want to use the berries to make all kinds of recipes. So, in the spirit of hope I've created a list here of all the cool recipes I've found that use raspberries. Maybe I'll get to try some of them out soon, using fresh berries from my own garden!

Of course I have to start with my very own Raspberry Dessert Sauce! This is sooooo good served over vanilla ice cream.

Here are some of the other raspberry dessert ideas I've found across the web:

Of course, desserts aren't the only recipes that utilize fresh strawberries. I love these fresh salads and dressings too!
