Did you know that when peaches and strawberries are baked together…they turn purple?

Who would’a thunk it?

Not this girl!

I spent most of my day yesterday working on the ebook. Blake is taking summer courses for grad school (MBA), so our weekends are very low key. He has to write a 12 page paper…and it was raining, okay! I had a last minute change of heart in the design I was working on. I had originally had my mind set on a horizontal layout (11 x 8.5), but then I started designing covers…and this happened.

This still isn’t the final final, but I LOVE the color story and the amount of white space this photo has. I keep my fonts pretty consistent on the blog, so I tried to take those into the book for continuity. 

If you have a design eye. I’d LOVE your feedback on…

  • Font choices
  • Font color choices
  • Font placing 
  • Anything else you have an opinion on!

Do you ever get in one of those modes WHERE YOU JUST CAN’T STOP. Like I am so excited to be in the home stretch of designing this e-book that I could literally stay up all night and do it. #obsessive

Okay, back to this delicious DESSERT.

All you need are 8 ingredients. It’s gluten free. Seasonally tasteful. And healthy enough to eat for breakfast! LEGITIMATELY. 

The innards are a mixture of fresh strawberries and peaches mixed with maple syrup, orange juice, and a few tablespoons of almond meal for texture.

On top- I mixed together some leftover quinoa from the night before and some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Granola. Very basic. Very very basic.

I finished this bad boy off with some coconut whipped cream…but you could totes go straight up ice cream. I would if I had any…but I try and keep that out of the house or I would probably turn into the ice cream man himself.

I still can’t get over the color that was made when the two fruits roasted in the oven and mixed together. #baffled

Unless I bought magical fruit, in that case…SWEET!
