Berry Compote With Goat Cheese Cream

         I love to browse the food section, of our local newspaper. It's a weekly treat  for me to look, at the nice food pictures and  recipes with seasonal fruits and veggies in it. This time of the year it's loaded with recipes with berries and cherries. This one has blueberry and goat cheese cream.
