easiest dessert ever!

Easiest dessert ever :)

A dessert maker I am not.  In fact, I don’t really have much of a sweet tooth.  My buds much prefer the savoury side of snacks such as potato chips, pickles, etc.

Well, last week I bought a persimmon.  Now, before the holidays I had never had a persimmon.  A wandering foodie eye always kinda wonders about things unknown but I never took the plunge; until a colleague at work offered one up to me.  Looking at this gorgeous tomato-like orange thing, I really wanted to bite right into it.  So fleshy and plump.  Almost like a firm breast.  Reminiscent of what mine used to be like.

ANYWAY (perv)…I had no idea what to do with this thing.  So of course, google being my ‘next to bestie’, I set forth.  Now, let’s remember I am not a dessert kind of person.  I never make it and for dinner parties, always have someone else deal with the pudding.

I digress.  The persimmon.  I channeled Martha Stewart.

I threw my oven on to broil, cut that succulent fruit in half and threw it in the oven.  In the meantime, I scraped a vanilla bean (like a champ I might add) into 1 cup of greek yogurt.  After about 10 minutes or so (until little bubbles started forming on my gorgeous little bumps) I took them out.  Topped them like the little sluts they were – with the yogurt – and drizzled honey.  Oh and to top it off, sifted some cocoa on these scrumptious little whores.

Next time, I’m gonna get boozy with it…
