Dessert Pizza

( Desserts )

Infinitely long asparagus and corn with a touch of butter. A light meal. Raspberries from Julie. An experiment with a dessert pizza. We used the standard whole wheat dough.

I made vegan Heather Cristo’s [...]

Sunday Sundae

Rolo ice cream banana split with raspberries and apricot jam. Aka, an afternoon breakfast.
