Love the berry photo, Lisa! I still have this recipe--you gave me one of the "old" recipe sheets from the farm and it's in my notebook.

Eric left a comment responding to your avocado accusation on my accent post. =)

Ah, the berry dumplings; my FAVORTIE part of summer. I've never used cinnamon though... I think you made that part up. =)
