Choose a Fruit - Fool

Yes, LOL. That's the name of this dessert 😁😋


  • 1 1/2 cups fruit (raspberries; blackberries; blueberries; thinly sliced strawberries; finely chopped apricots; or finely chopped, peeled peach, mango, or kiwi fruit)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • cup whipping cream 
  • tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Additional fruit (optional)
  • Cookies (optional)


  1. For fruit: In a large mixing bowl, combine the fruit and 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar. Let mixture stand for 10 minutes. Place 1 cup of the fruit mixture in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until pureed. Stir pureed fruit back into fruit in bowl. Cover and chill about 2 hours or until cold.
  2. For whipped cream: In a chilled medium mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and the vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer using chilled beaters on medium speed until almost-stiff peaks form.
  3. With a rubber spatula gently fold the pureed fruit into the whipped cream mixture, leaving visible swirls. To serve, divide the swirled fool among four to six small dessert glasses or dishes. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 2 hours before serving.

OK, this looks wicked easy to make! 4 Ingredients! If I can do this, anyone can!!

For the lemon yogurt topping, whisk together the yogurt, lemon curd, honey, and vanilla and set aside at room temperature.
For the fruit salad, carefully toss together the strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, sugar, and limoncello. Allow them to stand at room temperature for about 5 minutes to let the berries macerate with the sugar and liqueur. Gently fold the banana into the mixture.
Serve bowls of fruit with a dollop of lemon yogurt on top. Top each with a sprig of fresh mint.

Now at Books-A-Million

So, I was trolling around the internet, just taking a peek at different things and I google my name and see my books listed at

Wait a minute, what?

I didn't think I had any there, as when I went in to my local one about six months ago, I wasn't listed.

Well, that was before our ( books became available at Simon and Schuster, as they are now a distributor.


I did a Snoopy Dance 😋

So, yeah I'm at Books - A - Million now!!
