summery indulgence…

What better way to enjoy the summer months, than by eating the fruits that come along with it… So I decided to rinse off some juicy little blueberries that were picked up from a local farm and top them off with a mascarpone cream and crushed amaretti cookies. The sweet blueberries were a wonderful highlight against the tangy [although sweet in its own right] mascarpone cream, while the amaretti cookies gave a wonderful crunch and texture to an already divine sweet treat!

Hmmm maybe I should make more for dessert…

berry, berry good!

Tonight I decided to talk about something different and not what we usually eat often… dessert! This dessert however was actually probably on the ‘good’ side for us. Fresh blueberries, raspberries and blackberries served with a thick and creamy fat-free Greek yogurt that I doctored up with some local honey and vanilla!
The berries were sweet and a bit tart, the yogurt slightly tangy, but so flavorful. These are the kind of desserts that I never make me feel guilty and I could go back for more and more! Well maybe tomorrow…
