Luscious Boyne Raspberry Cheesecake with Bittersweet Chocolate

May 01, 2012

During the final few months of my wife’s pregnancy, all she wanted to eat were fruits and berries.  When she ran across these Raspberries in the store, she figured she would keep them for herself. I stumbled upon them when raiding the refrigerator one late night. I loved the strong sweet flavor and the bright color they shown. I immediately sent an email to my salesperson at the produce company and had him bring me some in. I love the versatile uses I get from them, like desserts, sauces, chutneys, and sorbets. If you ever stumble upon these, don’t pass them up.

Grapefruit Avocado Salad & Seared Pacific Grouper with Grapefruit Couscous and Citrus Buerre Blanc

February 02, 2012

Grapefruit Avocado Salad & Seared Pacific Grouper with Grapefruit Couscous and Citrus Buerre Blanc

Enjoy this recipe highlighting "grapefruit." which is a plentiful find, here in sunny Arizona. When selecting grapefruit, look for heaviness of size, firm to the touch when gentle pressure is applied, and a subtly sweet aroma (at room temperature). Grapefruit are available all year, but are "in-season" winter through early spring.
