I know I’ve told you this a few times, but this recipe requires that I tell you again . . . food is an art medium. You can create art with watercolors, acrylics, pastels, and yes, today — plums. My idea was to create a simple, delicately flavored dessert that would look much like swirls […]

Forgive me if I sound like a broken record, but I must mention it yet again. My dad has the most amazing garden, full with fruit and vegetables at any given time of the year.   This is one of the many reasons I’m so fortunate to quite close to my parents’ house. by
