Sweeter Off the Vine

Sweeter Off the Vine: Fruit Desserts for Every Season by Yossy Arefi
     You know by now that I cook something from the cookbooks I receive for review and this is no exception.  The hard part was deciding.  The easy part was the fact we are between winter and spring and nothing is fresh yet.    That made deciding what to make easy  yet agonizing.  Absolutely everything in this beautiful book looks delicious and I can’t wait for rhubarb season (about 6 weeks) so I can start on page one.
     My choice for this book was the Tangerine Cream Pie.  I make it a point to follow a recipe exactly the first time and then improvise or fudge things after that.  Well, I was astounded to find there are no tangerines at our store!  I really was looking forward to this!  Plan B:  Citrus Almond Thumbprints with Summer Jam.  Plan B was a good choice.  A simple cookie that is delicate, tasty, not over sweet and easy.
     All of the recipes in this book are simple.  There isn’t a huge list of complicated ingredients for each one, and that leaves the fruit to speak for itself.  I can’t wait for spring! 

I received this copy from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinion.


  1. Love the sound of this book, very appealing to someone with a sweet tooth

  2. We await Autumn here.....but I am always on the search for a good cookie recipie!
