Chocolate Blackberry Cream Cookies

It is just not that difficult to come up with a reason to purchase berries. I’m never quite sure what to do with them, but it never takes me long to figure it out.

Fruit and Nut Granola

This simple granola recipe is one of my favorites. It’s chock full of nuts and dried fruits, with a touch of sweetness from honey. It’s a great way to get a little energy for your morning.

Christmas Morning Punch

And yes, I will be drinking this on Christmas morning. And Christmas Eve morning. And the day before that. And the day before that.

Roasted Banana Molasses Muffins

There is this thing that happens to me as soon as the weather starts to cool in the fall. And that thing is molasses. I start to crave it. I dream up ways to use it. I catalog all the flavors that would taste wonderful with it. Like roasted bananas!

Banana Pudding

The Fruitarian has been begging for another taste of this pudding. Of the hundreds of recipes on this humble blog, this pudding, and the parfait I made with it, are his most memorable.

Peach Plum Crisp

And as long as I have the equivalent of two 5-gallon buckets full of fresh plums in my house, I suppose some plum desserts are in order. I adapted my favorite peach crisp recipe to incorporate the plums, and this delightful late summer dessert was born.

Tropical Punch Fruit Juice Popsicles

I love making homemade popsicles. Not only can you have a lot more control over what goes in them, you can also get much more creative with flavor combinations.

50 Fruit Cookies

I put together a collection of some of my favorite fruity cookies from around the web. All these cookies have one big requirement to make it on this list: They have to contain actual fruit in some form.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies

The thing is, sometimes a girl just needs a chocolate cookie, and it can’t wait until I’ve dug out the holiday music and put the Christmas centerpiece on the table. Luckily, this recipe is so quick and easy, you don’t have to wait.

Chocolate Banana Bread

I recently found myself saddled with ripe bananas, when the project I had intended to use them for fell through. The memory of this chocolate banana bread discussion came flooding back to me. And if I’m being completely honest, the thought of how this bread would look on this cutting board is the real reason I ended up making it.

Orange Carrot Smoothie

This smoothie doesn’t have any spinach, but does have carrots, which my grandmother always told me are good for your eyesight. Is that actually true? I don’t know. But I figure anything that you can grow in your backyard and harvest with your own hands can’t be too bad. Right?

Independence Day Treats

I love a good holiday. I love the comradery, the break from the daily grind, and most of all, the food. Oh, the food! Holiday food is the best, isn’t it?

Fruit Pizza

Whose big idea was it to have cake for every single birthday party ever? Nothing against cake, but I can think of about a dozen things I’d rather have. I don’t think there’s a single thing wrong with a birthday brownie, pie, cobbler, krispie treat, or fruit covered cookie.

Lemon Sugar Cookies

I bought myself a new maxi dress, so I guess I’m ready for summer. Why does lemon seem so summery? Some fruits can feel at home in any season, but plain old lemon is a summer as it gets.

Strawberry Pudding

When I told Robb I intended to make Strawberry Pudding, he wondered aloud whether it even existed. It will when I make it, I replied. He should just trust me, because it’s one of the tastiest and creamiest desserts I’ve had in a long time!
