Enjoy the last of the summer fruit.

And so I’m back.  Culinary school was not for me-CIA is an exceptional school with amazing instructors and support, but the academic part of the food industry took the passion and joy right out of me.  So I made the difficult decision to regroup and refocus on what I want.  I want to continue testing, tasting and creating yummy sweet treats. It makes me happy when people love the desserts we make!

So here’s a quick dessert idea to enjoy the last of the summer fruit.    Take any fruit you love, mix it with a little sugar, lemon zest and cinnamon if needed and place the mixture into small ramekins.  Top with a crumble mixture you would use on an apple pie (oatmeal, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and butter).  Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 -40 mins.  Top with ice cream or whipped cream and enjoy.  It’s an easy, quick and great little dessert! 🙂

Happy Baking,

Week one at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, was full of orientations, books, uniforms and of course food. Besides feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and nervous,  it was exciting to start this new chapter. It is hard to ignore the beauty of this school and its location. Enjoy a few pictures from my first week.  More updates from the culinary student perspective as time permits-look at those books!

Happy Baking,
