Honey Roasted Persimmons

I am so set for another "best week ever."
So many things are changing all of a sudden, but for once I'm not stressing, and it feels good.

A little piece of irony for the week: Now that season is over, I got myself a job at a pastry shop of all places! The (non)interview process consisted of me writing down my name, phone number, and days I can work, and so tomorrow you will find me in a black t-shirt and jeans serving desserts and coffee for the first time ever. I am really excited about it because it is so different from my regular routine. On another, more serious job-related note, I officially have an internship lined up for next summer that I feel great about. It is a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders.

Other great things happening in the near future: A final presentation, a $20 Czech steak dinner, one of my best friend's birthdays, a much anticipated pre-thanksgiving dinner or "friendsgiving" at our apartment, a Costco and Trader Joe's trip...yup. I am set for another "best week ever".

I also had a great workout today...nothing too crazy but it got the job done! I wanted to lift today, but all of the racks were full and I didn't have a ton of time, so I improvised and this is what happened:

  • Elliptical, 10 minutes (20 incline, 14 resistance)
  • Mile run, incline walk the rest of the time until 10 minutes (7:04)
  • Plyos circuit: 30 mountain climbers, 10 burpees, 30 skaters, 10 tuck jumps (repeat 3 times)
  • Abs, 10 minutes
Try it and let me know what you think :)

What are you looking forward to this week? How about making this perfect fall snack/dessert?

Honey Roasted Persimmons

Honey Roasted Persimmons

  • 2 medium persimmons
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Cinnamon, to sprinkle (optional)
  • Goat cheese (optional, if you want to make a cute dessert sandwich that looks like the one below...i used cranberry yummmm)
Honey Roasted Persimmon and Goat Cheese Sandwiches
  • Slice persimmons (about 1/4 inch thick)
  • In a bowl, toss with honey. If you are making a bigger batch, just use 1 tsp honey per persimmon, or more or less to taste.
  • Place slices on greased baking sheet (I used coconut oil)
  • Bake at 325 for about 20-30 minutes, or until slices are soft and slightly bronzed.
  • Remove, sprinkle with cinnamon if desired, and enjoy!

Please continue to spread the word! And you know I always welcome feedback :)


  1. I've never actually tried persimmons before but I love the idea of roasting them! I just baked a bunch of apples for my breakfasts this week. So delicious!

    1. I am new to them too but they are amazing, definitely give them a shot :) I looove baked apples! Have you also tried making them in a crockpot?

  2. Hope you had a good frist day at the new job and congrats on the internship!

    1. Thanks so much! It was a lot of fun, I have never worked in service before but I think I am really going to enjoy it :)
