You can use any fruit that would work for this, but I’ve only used it with peaches and apples. The fruit can be frozen or fresh, but if it’s fresh then make sure to remove the skin.
-1 small or medium pan
-1 medium pot lid
-10-12 slices of fruit
-1 tsp of butter
-1 tsp of brown sugar
-2-3 Tbs of white sugar
-2-3 shakes from a cinnamon shaker
-1/4 of a cup of water
Add the butter, brown sugar, and water in the pan and set the pan to medium heat. Move the pan around a bit while the butter melts to spread out the sugar and keep it from burning. Once all the butter has melted, put the fruit into the pan on a single layer and sprinkle the white sugar and cinnamon on top of the fruit. Cover the pan and turn the heat up a little bit higher and keep it as such for four minutes. After the time is up, uncover the pan and flip all the fruit over. Then recover the pan. Keep the heat the same and let it cook for 4-5 more minutes (or until the water in the pan has turned syrupy). Remove the fruit and syrup from the pan immediately (or the syrup will solidify) into a dish and serve.
I also assume that this would be tasty on pancakes as well. Not sure what Theriotype would be for, but it sure is good!!
4 cups cubed watermelon
1 cup hulled strawberries
1/2 peeled lime (or juice from 1/2 lime)
2 teaspoons chia seeds
6 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
If using juicer: Juice the watermelon, strawberries, and lime according to juicer’s instructions. Discard the pulp.
If using blender or food processor: Blend the watermelon, strawberries, and lime until smooth. Strain through a sieve, pushing the juice through with a spatula. Discard the solids.
Mix the chia seeds into the juice and refrigerate for about 15 minutes to let the chia seeds swell.
Muddle 3 mint leaves in the bottom of each glass. Fill glasses with ice (optional). Stir the juice to break up the chia seeds, pour into glasses, and serve.
my dog LOOOOVES loquats, otherwise known as Japanese plums or medlar. they're likely hard to get, but maybe some canine kins will like them?
Cool! Just be careful giving them to your dogs, I think the seeds are mildly toxic (though probably only if consumed in large amounts). Thanks for the tip.

Hope you guys all had happy holidays!
This is one recipe I made for my family. The side of my family that visited this year is southern, and my grandmother used to make these baked apples that were basically sugar and butter and, well, apples. These days, my family are quite the lot of health nuts, so I found this healthy version that tastes not only as good, but better (in my opinion, at least) than the original sugar-and-fat-and-more-sugar version.
Belated Happy Holidays!
