Individual Blueberry Pear Crisps!

I am back to blogging after a 4 month break!  I had my sweet baby boy in July and he has quickly won my heart!  I have been spending the majority of my time with him, but now that he is taking longer naps…I am having a bit more time to spend cooking and blogging!  This dessert is simply amazing!  It is a perfect late summer/early fall dish and and a great finish to any meal!  This recipe is very similar to other crisps that I have made with one additional surprise ingredient added to the topping.  I think you will really enjoy it!  Also thanks for sticking with me even though I haven’t posted in awhile!

Strawberry Pear Crisp, a delicious improvisation!

Happy Easter!!!

Ok..Easter was yesterday, but as I did not get to wish you all a Happy Easter then…today will have to do!  My husband Chris and I are in the middle of purchasing our first home, and are busy packing up our house while getting everything ready to paint and clean up our new place before we move it!  Saturday is the big move and the only reason I have one single second to put up a blog post is because the closing on our house keeps getting delayed, so we cannot get in the new place yet to start working!

That is also the reason I had time to make this quick, impromptu dessert for our Easter meal yesterday!  I was going to cop out and just buy some ice cream as I had been packing all morning!  However, all you need to make this crisp is flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon, lemon juice and FRUIT!!!  Even among the packing I was able to put together a quick topping mixture and then we went by the grocery store to grab some ice cream and any fruit that looked good!  I wanted this dish to be Springy instead of Falley so I didn’t want to make an apple crisp.  The only other fruit that looked ripe and ready for me were the Strawberries and Pears!  SO, I thought…what the heck…lets make a Strawberry Pear Crisp!  And it turns out that Strawberry Pear Crisps are AMAZING!!!

Pumpkin Pudding with Toffee Crisp Topping!



HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

I am thankful for many things this year including my family, friends, and each and every one of you who takes the time to read this blog and support and encourage me!  It really means a lot when you visit, leave a comment and make my recipes!  So THANKS TO YOU!!!  Now on to the recipe!

I had a can of pumpkin in my cubboard that was saying to me, “hey…it’s NOVEMBER!  Use me in something delicious!!!”  So who am I to deny a can of pumpkin its very destiny!  I wasn’t really in the mood for pumpkin bread or pumpkin pie (we are not really crust people) so I decided to try something new!  Pumpkin Pudding!

Pumpkin Pudding it turns out is very much like Pumpkin Pie filling which worked out great for us as that is my favorite part of the pie anyway!  However I did want to spice it up a bit as this was the only destiny this can of pumpkin was EVER going to have and FAR be it from me to let little Pumpy (yes I named the can of pumpkin) down!  SO, I decided to put a Crisp topping much like the kind my mother uses on her Thanksgiving sweet potatoes, on top of my Pumpy Pudding.  However I did not have any Pecans handy so substituted a little bit of crushed toffee for some crunch!  The result was this DELICIOUS and Very Simple concoction that may just become a fall tradition in our family and a future destiny of many Can’s of Pumpkin!  Lucky little devils!
