I need to get off my butt and into the kitchen. I love making desserts. I have been in such a lazy mood and can't seem to get out of it.

Desert for tonight, based on work done last night. Took 3 lbs. Ranier cherries, and cut in halves. Removed pits. Combined 3 cups of water with 6 cups sugar. Brought sugar/water mixture to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Put cherries into my largest mason jar, then filled with the syrup. Let sit overnight, and until 8 p.m. this evening. Put s1/8 cup cherries into a bowl. Cut banana into quarters, lengthwise, then sliced. Add a handful of fresh, wild blueberries, and cover with a single serving of blueberry yogurt. Stir to coat. Enjoy. It's yummy and refreshing.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Martha's ricotta chocolate ice box pie. I was trying to use up some excess ricotta that was leftover from a recipe so I didn't have enough for a full recipe (or enough chocolate given that I forgot to check the amount needed before we went shopping) but I did have enough for a 1/2 recipe. So, used a 6 or 7 inch springform, that piece is 1/6 of the pan. Told Craig I should have cut it in eighths. Really rich, smooth, creamy and you'd never know it was ricotta since that texture is just not there after whizzing it in the food processor.

Oh My (in my best George Takei voice)

I found the recipe/video and I am SO making this once I have all of my kitchen toys!

It starts to melt really fast if it's not really cool in the house, so be warned. I took it out, unmolded it partially and then started grating the chocolate for the top. Should have grated the chocolate on some wax paper for distribution before I took it out because it was getting really soft (obviously) by the time I was done with the chocolate.

And/or put it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes before serving.

Mostly fresh fruit - got a bargain in the greengrocers today - two very large punnets of strawberries for £2. Very nobly I will be eating them with homemade natural yoghourt (actually not so noble - I forgot to buy cream!)

While sorting out the chaos which was my chest freezer last week I found some peaches that I'd frozen last summer. They became a peach crumble ("crisp" in American?) and very good it was too. Ate it with Bird's custard (a peculiarly British delicacy invented by Mr Bird because his wife was allergic to eggs so couldn't have real custard) Yum!

I sometimes put oats in with the flour when the weather's cold but it's a bit much in summer.

Is Martha Stewart out of clink yet?
