simply sweet

normally i don't have a sweet tooth, and would choose a plate of luscious pasta over cheesecake any day, but lately, i've had great success with desserts.
no pictures, so you'll have to visualize.
it's been helpful that fruit so far has been soooo good, plentiful and cheap, or at least cheaper than in previous years!--strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and peaches. dessert success can thank the resourcefulness of freezing the leftover scones, as they became a wonderful crunchy topping for the peach/blueberry crumble. i put the scones in the food processor to crumble them, added cinnamon and brown sugar, and melted butter. unlike before, this time i toasted the crumbs, and they came out in granola like clumps- yum. i topped the blueberries/peaches that had been simmered in brown sugar, cinnamon and grand marnier, and baked till bubbly- mmmmmmm! even better with vanilla ice cream-
speaking of ice cream, was checking out the fridge, and noticed that it was time to use the raspberries and strawberries i had bought a few days ago- what happens? a very simple dessert- vanilla ice cream with sliced strawberries and raspberries and a drizzle of chocolate syrup-oh my, incredibly good-
to continue the fruity goodness this morning's breakfast was vanilla yogurt with the remaining raspberries, some strawberries, and topped with the scone crumbles- yea- that's good eating-

say what's in your freezer begging to be re-created?
