Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Cantaloupe, Bacon, Raisin, and Port Salad

Sometimes desperation causes the best recipes to be created. This recipe is a definite case in point when I was short on time and ingredients and threw together a few staples I always have on hand with some perfectly ripe cantaloupe. The results were wonderful and it has become a favorite recipe.

1/2 cup tawny or ruby port
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 medium ripe cantaloupe
6 slices cooked crumbled bacon

Place the raisins in the port and let them macerate while you prepare the cantaloupe. Peel, seed, and melon ball or cube the cantaloupe. Toss the melon with the bacon and port/raisin mixture. Serve immediately at room temperature.

Makes 6 servings.
