I'm such a sucker for jams, I absolutely adore them. Probably because my grandma spoon fed them to me since before I was eating solids. She makes all of her preserves by hand and always uses the fruit of each season. I have always wanted her to pass along the torch but when I found out how much sugar was in a traditional preserve I nearly dropped dead. I just couldn't justify that much sugar, ever. And traditional preserves are also very time consuming to make. So when I came up with this 8 minute preserve that required no added sugar and only 3 ingredients, I was beyond thrilled and just couldn't wait to share it with you!
Hellooooo summer! Well, maybe not for you guys up in the North East but here in South Florida we have officially skipped spring! It's hot, getting humid, but still beautiful. When I think of summer there is one word that instantly comes to mind: blueberries. Every summer my parents would drop me off at camp in northern Maine and I would spend the afternoons swimming in the icy lake and picking wild blueberries with my camp friends. It was heaven. So whenever berries come into season I get beyond excited, as they always bring me back to my childhood. These pancakes are made with buckwheat, which is really not a wheat at all- it's a ground up seed, and turmeric which has incredible anti-inflammatory properties. The pancakes are drizzled with a warm blueberry maple syrup that truly ties the whole thing together.
This may be my new favorite go to snack. I had it for the first time yesterday when I got home from class and was rummaging through the fridge looking for something to eat. There was nothing. Well, almost nothing. There was a lone coconut milk plain yogurt and a box of organic blackberries. And so the coconut yogurt parfait was born.
These saffron raspberry yogurt cups left me speechless. They literally blew me away. My taste buds are wondering if I'm in heaven because they've never tasted anything so divine. They're magical. Purely magical. Each bite has a bit of crunch entwined with sweet vanilla bean and saffron goodness.
