Cranberry Apple Crisp

A fruit crisp is the perfect dessert when you want to make something that is both delicious, comforting and not too time consuming. As long as you have a bunch of fruit in your kitchen – and you can usually use fresh or frozen – you can make a crisp. Apples are one fruit that I always have around, no matter what time of year ...

Honey and Cinnamon Roasted Pears

Honey Roasted Pears

Pears are one of my favorite winter fruits. Their season starts in the late fall and runs all the way through spring, and I take every opportunity to enjoy perfectly ripe pears.

Spiced Peaches n’ Cream Bread Pudding

Spiced Peaches n' Cream Bread Pudding

Sometimes I will pick up an extra loaf of bread when I am out shopping for groceries. I know at the time that it is slightly more bread than I need to have on hand – even if I’m planning to make a lot of sandwiches – but I do it anyway because I know that the extra loaf will give me an excuse to ...

Skillet Berry Crisp

Skillet Berry Cobbler

Fruit cobblers and crisps are low maintenence desserts where fruit can be the star of the show. I make them year-round using frozen fruit, but I make them a little bit more often during the summer when my kitchen is well-stocked with fresh fruits and berries. The only drawback to fruit crisp is that it is a dessert that needs to be baked in the ... Read More »

Strawberry, Mint and Lime Shortcakes

As soon as strawberries come into season, I start making strawberry shortcakes for dessert. I love the combination of cake or biscuits, whipped cream and strawberries – especially when the strawberries are perfectly ripe and sweet – and it is so easy to make that it is always one of my go-to summertime desserts. Thees Strawberry, Mint and Lime Shortcakes put just a little twist ... Read More »

Chai Spice Apple Crisp

Chai Spice Apple Crumble

I find that I use a lot more spice in my baking during the fall and winter months. This is partly because spices are so warming, and partly because you don’t quite get that same variety of fresh fruits that you do during the summer and spices are a good alternative when it comes to mixing up the flavors in a recipe. I like to ... Read More »
