(Darrell tries to fix Cynthia’s hot flash fan)

Get gorgeous summer fruit at your local farmer’s market and top it with simple sensuous nut cream (made from cashew, vanilla, maple syrup and water – that’s all!).  Then sit back with your dessert bowl and spoon and read about Margaret Wittenberg’s New Good Food, then find out why tomatoes like girly voices better than man tones.
