If any of my readers or sassyNpunk fans ever get the pleasure of visiting me in my home, these are the kinds of appetizers and desserts I serve when I entertain guests. When I was living on my own, I was a huuuge health fanatic, but now that I live with my family again, I admit, it is a little bit harder to get to enjoy these things simply because I am not the one who buys the groceries in the house nor do I pay the bills. It's easy to eat healthy when you are feeding one person, but when you live in a house with a dozen other people, it's much harder to watch what you eat, and your grocery bill can easily add up to several hundred dollars a month because these types of ingredients can be quite expensive. Berries and exotic produce are going to be the most expensive items on your bill, so if you do end up trying these recipes, I suggest you do it while the particular fruit you are using is in season. In season fruit is a fraction of the cost it would be any other time of the year, plus it just tastes a whole lot better too!
Just like with my fashion, I prefer making my own rather than buying from department stores, and I follow the same philosophy when it comes to my food. I very rarely eat out...everything just tastes better when you know how much work goes into it. Enjoy!
