Blueberry-Pecan Crisp

The blueberries this summer are so sweet and juicy, and I’m thrilled that they aren’t expensive either. The other day, I decided to make a simple Blueberry Crisp from a recipe my friends, Nancy and Lissa, sent me. When I put the photo on Facebook, everyone was begging for the recipe. It’s terrific served on its own or with a scoop of low-fat yogurt or ice cream. Happy July 4th week everyone! Enjoy and be safe!

Strawberry-Blueberry and Peach Crisp

I can’t believe summer is over as it has been a blur for me. I had 6 months to create my upcoming cookbook “Best 400 Sandwiches- Ideas for Every Meal and Occasion”, and my manuscript is due to my publisher next week. It is very exciting, and it has been a challenge like no other I have ever had. Somehow, I managed to keep up my blog, and it was almost therapy for me to work on other types of recipes during such a crazy, busy time. My favorite dessert is a crisp or a crumble, and last week I just threw this Strawberry-Blueberry and Peach Crisp together with some leftover fruit I had. It came out great, and it was gone within minutes. Thanks to everyone who has been so helpful and supportive this year!

Summer Dessert Comfort Food: Peach-Blueberry Crisp

I’ve been searching for a great crisp recipe using fresh peaches and blueberries that I bought yesterday from the farmer’s market. My sister just recently purchased Emeril’s book “20-40-60 Fresh Food Fast”, and showed me his recipe. I adapted his recipe just slightly reducing some of the butter and using whole wheat flour. It came out great! Enjoy the peak of delicious summertime fruit with this comforting dessert.

Five Ingredient Low-Fat Pear-Cherry Crisp for St. Patrick’s Day

Coming up with five ingredient recipes can be really challenging as a Recipe Developer, especially when it comes to desserts. I love warm desserts such as cobblers and crisps. A crisp is a dessert of fruit that is topped with a crumbly pastry mixture, usually oats, brown sugar and butter. Using low-fat granola is a great way to cut down on the amount of ingredients. This recipe is very simple, low-fat, great for kids, and it works well in individual baking dishes, such as this clover for St. Patrick’s Day.
