Such a great and Special collection. Need to check them out step by step and look what I can try. Love the idea to grill fruits. I don’t do it really often. I have some recipes with baked banana but never tried out peaches. xoxo Janine


Grilled pineapple and icecream is one of my all time favourite desserts! So delicious!

Sounds yummy, Anne. I love celery and almonds in salads.


Love all your suggestions! My summer favorite: easy salad of lettuce, celery, tomatoes, almonds and either cheddar or mozzarella cheese with oil and vinegar dressing. http://anneritataylor.blogspot.com

Don’t those look so amazing, Corina? Love those too. Next time I’m in LA I have to try ’em.


Everything is amazing, but the coconuts in the cover are the best things i’ve ever seen!
