apricots with ricotta,honey and cinnamonMother nature is just killing me! After 10 days of rain and dreary weather, we had a day and a half of sunshine. It was nice but today mother nature is in a bad mood again. All I can think about is the 90 degree weather and sunshine  I am going to get soon in Florida at the Food and Wine Conference .

The one thing I love about spring is the fresh fruit I can’t get at any other time of year. Right now I am on an apricot kick. They seem to be only around for a month so I but as many as I can.

This dessert (or even breakfast) is a perfect light ending to a meal. The apricots can be grilled in advance then slightly warmed in the microwave. Just a little bit of grilling, brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit.

This is my kind of dessert!
