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.

Strawberry spinach salad recipes are always popular and always delicious. But I found a way to take the classic combination of spinach and strawberries to new heights. Edamame. That’s Ed-Uh-Ma-May (aka soy beans). I know that I make a lot of spinach salads, and I probably say that every one is the best spinach salad recipe, but for right now, this one is blowing them all out of the water in my book.
