Chef Devin’s Week 2 Mini Challenge: Cook with Fruit

If you need more inspiration in the kitchen to kick-off week two of the Cook at Home Challenge, then Chef Devin’s got a sweet idea for you. Cook with fruit! Sounds simple enough, right? Considering most Americans don’t get anywhere near their daily fruit and vegetable servings, this is one tip we could all use.

Watch now as Devin explains that pineapple, mango and grapefruit are in season and she offers a few ideas from the Biggest Loser Cookbook and her new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Fattening cookbook.

What creations can you come up with for cooking with fruit this week? Give it a try, then submit your entry for the Cook at Home Challenge.

See the prize for week 2 – a Circulon cookware package.

I LOVE this mini challenge, as cooking with fruit is a favorite of mine. I'll definitely have to share with you guys a couple easy things I do to put more fruit on our plates for meals.
