Apricot-Cherry  Crisp

Apricot-Cherry Crisp

I made this Apricot-Cherry Crisp a few weeks ago, but realized that I’d never posted about it.  The recipe comes from Deborah Madison’s “Local Flavors”, and while it’s not an entirely vegan cookbook, many of the recipes are easily adapted. I was really excited to try this recipe since I love both cherries and apricots, [...]

Mint Sugar Fruit Salad

Mint Sugar Fruit Salad

I’m still working my way through showing you guys everything I served at our Bears’ Brunch, even though we’re long past Bears talk since they blew the game last weekend.  My nephew is a Steelers fan (we’re not sure where that came from), so we’ll all be rooting for them in the Super Bowl. I’ll [...]

Clementines!

Clementines!

We’re so lucky to have fruit trees in front of our apartment!  We have a grapefruit, clementine and kumquat tree.  Both my husband and I grew up in the freezing midwest, so an actually citrus tree in the yard is pretty special.  A few weeks ago we brought in a ton of clementines to enjoy [...]
