I just can’t seem to get enough of those tasty Florida blueberries!  It’s probably because my subconscious keeps telling me that they’ll be gone soon.  I  plop them on cereal and in yogurt.  I mix them into salads.  I make ice cream, pies and shortcake.  I bake muffins, bars and cakes with them.  And, I bake them into luscious, fruity, juicy crisps, like this one.

Cobblers, crisps and crumbles – I can never get them straight!   My understanding is that a crisp is a baked fruit dessert that is topped with a crunchy, crumbly topping made from sugar, flour, butter and often rolled oats and nuts. That sounds good to me, so I’m calling it a crisp.  Whatever you call it, it’s one of the simplest, yet most delicious ways to use succulent seasonal fruits.  read more >>

Chinese Long Beans with Shiitake Mushrooms and Pork in Black Bean Sauce

Tuesday, August 3, 201016 Comments

Last week I got some interesting things in my veggie basket, one of which were yardlong beans, or Chinese long beans. I have never, ever seen them before at the market, and I’m pretty sure I’d never eaten them before either. I was psyched! I took a pinch of this and a smidge of that and came up with my own version of Chinese Long Beans with Shiitake Mushrooms and Pork in Black Bean Garlic Sauce.

Here’s a little something I made for our Fourth of July celebration last weekend.  Aren’t they cute?  They’re Gingery Blueberry Shortcake Sliders.
