I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Fresh Raspberry Fool

Caneberry season is just starting here in Oregon and it is one time I really look forward to, This year I  thought I would share some of my fave recipes as each berry is available. The raspberries are just now starting and the strawberries ending. The recipe below can be used for any fresh berry, but I like it best with fresh Raspberries.
The recipe comes from my Splenda cookbook, so it is pure indulgence without all the fat and calories!

Fresh Raspberry Fool

1 1/2 cups low fat plain yogurt
8 tablespoons Splenda granular, divided
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
12 ounces fresh raspberries
 4 Tablespoons heavy whip cream

In a small bowl combine yogurt,  4 tablespoons splenda, and extract. In a separate bowl, mash berries with 2 tablespoons splenda. Chill both at least 1 hour.

Whip cream with remaining 2 tablespoons splenda until moderately stiff. Fold cream into into yogurt mixture. Swirl berries lightly into cream/yogurt mixture, and pour into elegant glass desert dishes. Garnish with a whole berry. Serves 4.
