Sauced: Strawberry-Blackberry Sauce
Sometimes a recipe just hits at the exact right time. It was a hot day and I was exhausted, but still determined to make a sauce recipe that night, even if the thought of spending a long time in the kitchen seemed torturous.
Filled with berry freshness, the sauce takes full advantage of the seasonally excellent fruit. It's bright and sweet with just a hint of tartness, and takes no more than 15 minutes to throw together. When I was eating it, nothing seemed like a better complement to vanilla ice cream but later, once I had crashed, I dreamed of the waffles and pound cakes it could also adorn.
