I just came across this recipe for Stephanie’s Mixed Fruit crumble thingy from Bravo that everyone went ga-ga over last night and thought I’d share. Honestly, I’d like to just snack on the Cinnamon Gyoza, but that’s beside the point. And for the life of me I don’t know what chiffonade is in this recipe. Oh well. Enjoy.
