Strawberry Rhubarb Cake from Three Little Halves

A couple of years ago, I embarked on a mission to find the yummiest, most enticing, and most delicious recipe for fruit bread. The best fruit bread on this planet. Period. Just in case you are wondering, my search had nothing to do with culinary curiosity, nothing to do with a quest for excellence and kitchen supremacy. No, no, no, it was a different story altogether: my six-year-old daughter was refusing to eat fruits and an intervention was badly needed.

A Refreshing, Sophisticated Summer Sorbet

  Fresh, plump berries are spilling out of baskets everywhere – blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, can you pick a favorite? We certainly cannot. Signs for pick-your-own berries have popped up along the side of the road, and the farm stands are piled high with shades of red and blue. We have already had our share of pies, crumbles, crisps, and cakes. It’s time for something a little different, light and refreshing: sorbet. Sorbet takes the best summer fruits and turns them into a fresh, cool treat. There’s no ice cream machine involved – the blender can do all the… Read more
