Fruit Crisp for 2

Fruit Crisp for 2

I love this simple "crisp for two" - so easy, versatile, healthy, and delicious. Here, made with the last of the season's peaches and blueberries, but of course it can be made with whatever fruit you fancy. I can totally picture this made with apples and cinnamon for the perfect fall breakfast. Or with fresh figs... mmm figs... :)

You can also make it gluten-free by using gluten-free oats, and vegan by subbing the butter for your favorite vegan spread or flavorful coconut oil.

Grandma's Apple Strudel

Apple Strudel

This classic German dessert of "sweet apples encased in a thin, flaky dough" is all the sweeter because Erica and her grandmother made it together. Although the recipe stays in their family, her apple strudel is truly "a thing of beauty." Delicious fall inspiration for the rest of us!

Pear Upside-Down Cake

Pear Upside-Down Cake

from lol foodie

I love upside-down cakes because they're served hot, right from the oven! This is a cake heady with the fragrance of pears, honey and cardamom. Fresh fruit, honey syrup, warm cake...all you need is a fork and a hot cup of tea.

Here's a recipe for a scone mix you can keep in the fridge, so you can make small batches of scones whenever the mood strikes. Flavor your scones to suit your fancy - like these beautiful blueberry scones that Dana whipped up, which are a lovely not-too-sweet treat studded with fresh seasonal blueberries.
