Frozen cherries are a great fruit to keep on hand for snacks and quick desserts! Ideal for smoothies, cherries are naturally sweet, the frozen whole black cherries are fairly inexpensive, and store for months in your freezer. If you use fresh cherries, chill before serving.

If you can make pancakes, you can definitely make crepes! I know that they might seem fancy, but they are incredibly versatile and can be served with both savory and sweet fillings and store extremely well.

If fresh cherries are out of your budget or out of season, the frozen version will work just as well! Cherries are a good source of antioxidants and they plump nicely when baked in muffins.

Sweet oranges and tart cranberries are a pretty pair! I always keep a bag of cranberries in my freezer year-round since they disappear from the produce isle after the winter holidays.

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins

One of my youngest clients, Sarah, dubbed this lemony breakfast treat the “polka-dot muffin”. To save time, double the amount of batter and freeze half a batch in paper muffin liners. When you’re ready for another fresh- baked round, pop them into a muffin pan and bake in your pre-heated oven!

Pear Hazelnut Muffin

Pears are plentiful in the fall. If you happen to have a few bruised pears at the bottom of your fruit bowl, this is a great way to rescue them! If you don’t have hazelnuts, almonds work just as well. I store all my nuts in the freezer to keep them from becoming rancid.
