Baked Grapefruit Recipe

honey-cinnamon-baked-grapefruit-recipe_1

My readers and class participants are always asking for healthy dessert ideas.  My favorite healthy desserts are ones with fruit as the star, recipes like poached pears, strawberry salad or strawberry rhubarb crisp.  This baked grapefruit recipe was suggested to me by several of my readers in the comments of the grapefruit giveaway I hosted a few months ago.  I had never heard of baking grapefruit before, and emailed many of you for details.  I gave it a try and have become someone addicted.  In fact it’s killing me that grapefruit season is ending!  These are simple to make and delicious for dessert, a snack or even breakfast.

Grapefruit Avocado Salad Recipe

This has apparently turned into the week of food I used to hate.  I tried grapefruit a few times growing up.  The first time was when I’d spent the night at my friend Jenny’s house.  Her older sister Connie was eating breakfast when we wandered into the kitchen, rubbing the sleepiness of giggling late into the night out of our eyes.  Connie was a mix between the really fun older teenager who you look up to and want to be like, and the scary older teenager who might do something insane at any moment that could get everyone in big trouble.Looking back with an adult perspective, I wonder if she might have been mildly bipolar, but at the time I just thought she was a little cool and a little crazy.

Homemade Cranberry Sauce with Satsuma Zest

Cranberry Sauce Satsuma Zest

I mentioned last year that I’m in charge of cranberry sauce for my family’s Thanksgiving meal.  My dad always wants the cranberry jelly in a can, but my mom, grandmother and I love real cranberry sauce.  Each year I sit back and smile as all the ladies at the table sing out “Pass the cranberry sauce!!!”  Last year was the first time I used satsumas instead of large navel oranges.  I loved the flavor and the fact that it’s using produce that’s in season.
