I love everything about Creme Brulee (Crème Brûlée), the texture of the custard, the perfect little portions, the pleasure I get from cracking the crunchy caramel crust. Oh yeah, and also the French accent marks in the spelling.
The past week has seen an outpour of grief over the heartbreaking post by popular food blogger, recipe writer, and food editor, Jennifer Perillo. I don’t know her personally, but I follow her blog and know we live in the same borough. On Sunday she tragically lost her husband and wrote a sad, yet beautiful post. Please read it if you have time, then you’ll know why bloggers and others around the world have made Peanut Butter Pies today. I didn’t follow her recipe exactly because I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand, so I created a quick whipped mini pudding pie version using Nutella instead of peanut butter.
If you’re looking for an icy dessert fix, this recipe is for you. With just 3 simple ingredients, a blender and about 5 minutes you’ll have a quick healthy summer dessert. I used my trusty Blendtec blender and puréed the mango till there were no more chunks.
Everyone eats popsicles in the Summer. Or if you’re like me, I could eat them all year long! So what’s the problem with making them yourself? It’s just as easy buying them at a store, plus it’s healthier. All you need is fresh Strawberries, Agave syrup, Lemon Juice, and some Yogurt, along with a blender and popsicle molds.
