Local blueberries are in full harvest mode. On my way back from a week spent on North Haven, a quiet and radiant island in Penobscot Bay, I stopped along Route 1 in Maine to buy wild blueberries, the state's signature fruit.
A while back I developed a recipe for Blueberry & Pomegranate Popsicles that only has two ingredients: blueberries and pomegranate juice. Make these for yourself and your kids and enjoy them during the hot summer days.
Crostadas are like free-form pies, not baked in a pan, but rather on a baking sheet, with the dough folded up around the edges of the filling. They are rustic looking, absolutely beautiful, with the filling bubbling up from within the crust.
I don't even need to say anything else right? Cannoli. Mascarpone cream. Chocolate dipped edges. And a perfectly crisp shell. This experiment in the kitchen making cannoli from scratch was by far one of my best.
My family is very into food. We're not foodies in the sense that we obsess over local ingredients or seek out obscure delicacies. Rather, we just really like the experience of ordering it, consuming it, and telling others about it.
