Here's an excerpt below - note that the good thing about this article is that the recipe for The Mixed Berry Slump and other dishes is included in the link.
"The Mixed Berry Slump, another easy recipe that uses any in-season fruit, won rave reviews at my casual Sunday dinner party. As an added bonus, the dish is made in a pot on the stove, so you don't have to heat up the oven. On the down side, the slump is best when it is made and served immediately, so you should save this recipe for friends or family who don't mind your absence from the dinner table while you finish up the dessert."
Stay tuned for more dinner party ideas soon.
