I really want to be able to have dessert, even when I am trying to eat healthy. It doesn’t have to be ooey gooey, but it does have to look good and taste really good. These melon balls with just a touch of mint simple syrup were elegant and delicious. A little mint from the herb garden made the syrup easy, and the cantaloupe from the farmer’s market were fantastic. Proving that a dessert doesn’t have to have a ton of calories to be a hit.

Inspired by the Seinfeld episode “Top of the Muffin to You”, I decided to try baking just the muffin tops. Not so impressive looking, since they look a lot like cookies, but the almonds on top definitely put them over the “top”.
