This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts. We go to the local orchard and pick delicious peaches, then come home to enjoy our juicy bounty!
Directions: Cube the peach and place it in a small fruit bowl. Stir the yogurt and drop a tablespoon on top of the peaches. Add a dash of cinnamon and enjoy! Makes 1-2 servings per peach.
We were in Normandy one summer and the food was scrumptious. A dessert idea that we picked up there was cheese and bit of fruit. After a lighter supper, such as a dinner salad, this really satisfies!
A couple varieties of cheese
sliced fresh fruit or grapes
nuts if desired
Directions: Place small servings of each type of cheese and a bit of fruit on each plate. Savor this while watching the sunset.
Sometimes you need just a little something at the end of the meal. Watermelon granita is refreshing and light. If barbecue is your main course, this is a great finish to the meal.
8×12 lasagna pan
half a seedless watermelon
1/4 cup agave syrup or sugar
3 TBS Rose’s Sweet Lime
Directions: Cut up the watermelon into small cubes. Add the agave and lime to the blender, along with as much melon as you can fit. Blend until pureed. Pour into the lasagna pan. Puree the rest of the melon in batches until complete. Mix all of the melon in the lasagna pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and carefully place in the freezer. Scrape the surface and sides of the pan with a large spoon every hour. Once the entire mixture is flaky ice, it is ready to serve. Keep leftovers covered in the freezer to maintain freshness. Makes approximately 8 servings.
