It’s Just Fruit! I used to have a refrigerator magnet with a picture of a woman eating a piece of blueberry pie captioned “It’s just fruit!”. It was an inside joke between my mom, also a dietitian, and I because we could always rationalize a dessert that contained fruit.
I still prefer fruit-based desserts not only because of their vitamins and fiber bonus but because I love the way they taste. Le Creuset has the perfect winter fruit dessert (Spiced Pear Crisp) that ends up being perfectly portion-controlled with these adorable little gratins.h
Wishing you a sweet and fruity Valentine’s Day.
