Last weeks favorites were all about chocolate, but this week’s theme seems to be fruit. I guess it’s appropriate, because it’s spring. As I write this, I’m listening to birds chirping, and looking at blossoming fruit trees and grey skies. I’m even planting herbs and veggies this week. (I hope I can find time to plant the thyme. Ba-dum-bum.) This week, I personally used 5 grapefruits, 4 lemons, 2 boxes of strawberries, 1 plantain, and a whole bag of oranges. I created a lemon pancake syrup which I am now seriously addicted to. I am loving every minute of this fruity-spring thing!

Late night baking is the curse of the food blogger. I’ve been so busy blogging and keeping up with errands and my kids’ spring break and health concerns, it has been really hard to find time to bake. I was determined to make these beautiful grapefruit cookies this week, so I started the batch about 11 pm. I was fueled by a recent re-read through the recipe, which made me drool over the thought of grapefruit juice. I pulled the grapefruits out of the fridge and smelled them. Mmmm. I can see why people want to do that grapefruit diet.
