To celebrate this little victory, I want to think of a prize/giveaway for you :) stay tuned for more info on how to participate & check ZoZo's facebook page in the upcoming weeks.  So on Wednesday, I made a trip to the Farmer's market to see what equipment /tools I need to set up the booth ... being in the Farmer's market means picking up fresh berries...how could I resist right?? I love berries...don't you?

Now, I have more berries than I could eat and I need to put them in a good use before they go bad...I found this recipe and I think I just love it.
