BAKING WITH OLIVIA AND CAROLINE
Olivia and Caroline
We’d like to welcome our new bakers, the mother-daughter team of Olivia Valentine (who is also one of our awesome photographers) and her daughter Caroline Markonic. We’re so excited for them to take over this baking column from Jessie. Jessie will continue to contribute from time-to-time so don’t fret! But in the coming months Olivia and Caroline are going to share exciting recipes, while having lots of fun creating some mouth-watering desserts! We hope you enjoy.
Hello summer, hello FRUIT PIZZA! Fruit pizza is the perfect summertime dessert. Seriously, this dessert is delicious.

Summer has arrived and with it are fresh, seasonal fruits (and vegetables) like strawberries (and rhubarb)!

1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup flour
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
2 cups 1” fresh rhubarb pieces
2 tbs butter
1 tbs sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Use your favorite pie crust recipe or store bought; this is a two-crust pie.
