When it is the heart of the summer, and fresh fruit is abundant, I begin to have a hankering for a freshly baked fruit crisp. Over the years I have experimented with crisps, cobblers, and other fruit desserts. I created what is now my favorite summer dessert : a combination of plums, apricots and blueberries, tossed with some sugar and flour so that the juices would not become too runny. For a topping, I used a combination of oats, flour, butter, and sugar. You can add chopped nuts if you want. THis is good warm and also cool or room tempaerature.
I love food! I love to cook, eat, read about food, write about food, and enjoy meals with friends and family. I have been writing a food memoir for the past decade and am just about done! I epsecially love to create recipes using seasonal and local produce. I love to travel and wherever I go I shop at markets, cook, and try to take a cooking class.
