Crostini with Ricotta, Fresh Cherries and Pistachios

Crostini with Fresh Ricotta, Fresh Cherries and Pistachios

This crostini recipe uses fresh ricotta, fresh cherries and chopped pistachios. The flavour combination of cherries and pistachios is my ultimate favourite. I cannot get enough dishes that include them both. Try it for yourself. It's super easy to make and something you can whip up in a snap! I love cherry season so much. Cherries are my favourite fruit by far. I can eat them all day long and nothing else. I love any kind of cherry. My personal favourite is Rainier Cherries but it can be hard … [Read more...]

Coconut Whipped Cream and Cherry Parfaits: Guest Post for Crumb

Coconut Whipped Cream And Cherry Parfaits by Cravings of a Lunatic

This simple and quick dessert looks really impressive. It also tastes super decadent, and people will adore you when they try it. What I love about this is how easy it is. There's just something so satisfying to me about tricking people into thinking you spent all day on a dessert when you really only spent a few minutes. I have no idea what that says about me on a personal level, but I get a charge out of pulling the wool over people's eyes on occasion. Don't judge. I'm a huge cherry fanatic, … [Read more...]

cupcakes

Hi folks. I took a hiatus from Burning Down The Kitchen recently. After the vacation of doom I just was not up to doing them. Plus I'm not going to lie, I've had a couple of interviews get forgotten about by the interviewee. So for a while there I was questioning whether I wanted to continue doing these interviews. But I'll be darned if I'm going to let someone else control my world. Yes they are a lot of work to organize but for me the payoff is awesome. I get to know other bloggers so much … [Read more...]
