Purple Kitchen Treats

Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.

However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.

My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.

Red, White & Blue Fruit Salsa

In honor of Memorial Day here in the US, I wanted to put together something very American.  We have all kinds of patriotic themed desserts, but I have not seen this version of a sweet fruit salsa.  There are no jalapenos in this, but if y'all wanted to add some, go right ahead.

Some serving suggestions that come to mind are:

  • over shortcake with whipped cream
  • used as a salsa with corn chips to satisfy that "sweet/salty" flavor craving that we all get from time to time  
  • with ice cream 
  • on cheese cake 
  • in a salad with goat cheese and raspberry walnut vinaigrette over baby field greens
  • with your favorite yogurt
  • or any other way that suits your personal fancy
Servings:     About 6
Time:     45 - 60 minutes
Temp:    Room temperature
Difficulty:     Easy

1 cup chopped fresh Bosc pears, about 1/4 inch
1 cup chopped fresh strawberries, about 1/4 inch
1 cup blueberries, not chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
1 tablespoon superfine sugar
Juice of 1 lime

Mix all ingredients together, cover and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

From the heart of my purple kitchen to you.
