Put out an A.P.B - Apple, Pear, Banana cobbler

Summer is on it's way. Can you believe it? It's almost May. How the time flies! We need to get ready to fit into our trunks and swimsuits. So, we need to start working out and eating healthy.

With the impending summer, many fruits are coming into season. Fruits are some of the most amazing delicacies that nature provides us. They are sweet, but not overly sweet and they fill you up, because they have tons of fiber. And they taste so good!

So the highlight how good fruits can be in a baked good, I decided to make a cobbler - specifically, a Apple, Pear, and Banana Cobbler. When you eat this cobbler, you will feel the warm comforting embrace of summer - I promise.

And it might help you get into those trunks.
 I love cobbler recipes - they are absolutely delicious - I love the way the flavors blend in together with a crunchy exterior. I chose pears, bananas, and apples, but you can choose any combination you love.

The crust recipe is from Heidi in 101 Cookbooks. It's the best crust recipe that I've found so far - I base that on how much sugar and fat there is. I primarily reduced the amount of sugar even more and the amount of butter is so trivial (or so I consider it to be), that it's a relatively healthy dessert.

This is a to-go recipe that I highly recommend - it's versatile (in terms of flavors), easy to adapt, and delicious. And it takes less than 30 minutes to assemble and another 30 to bake - That's an hour. Pretty amazing, considering a lot of other cakes and breads take a lot longer. A good recipe for someone who can't wait to dive into a dessert.

While you partake in this delicious recipe, in the meantime, I'm going to go to the gym (I've had a few too many desserts, lately).

Also, I'm going to be taking a little vacation for the next two weeks, so I'll be back with awesome new recipes on May 10th.

Yay vacation!
