It is officially summer.
Okay, not for another couple weeks, I suppose, but for me? Summertime is here.
We are having bright warm sunny days – mid eighties all this week – and light nights where we enjoy some good patio time.
The warmer temperatures bring cravings for lighter foods. What is the phenomenon that hot summer days = lighter appetites? Even if dinnertime is comprised of lighter fare, dessert is still a must, am I right?
The farmers markets are again the source of my delights – lusciously sweet Anjou pears eaten in the car on the way home. Several were saved long enough to create a smashingly impressive dessert that is so easy to make, with real simple ingredients.
Topping things with buttery caramel? Definitely.
