passion fruit breakfast

photos: m&j

Okay, it’s not technically local or seasonal here in NYC. But one nice thing about this time of year is that the tropical fruits start to show up at the grocery store and our hands down favorite is the aromatic and mouth-puckeringly delicious passion fruit. So easy with a house full of relatives – enjoy it spooned over yoghurt or just eaten out of its own, wrinkly, egg-like bowl – what on earth could be sunnier when it’s just plain freezing out? Makes us want to move to Sydney!

    Your blog inspired me to purchase a passion fruit! What a wonderfully tart and wholly delightful taste treat — made all that much better by actually eating right out of the fruit itself!

    The photos are gorgeous. I always so look forward to each and every monthly update! Thanks, ladies. Stunning work, as always.

    • Thank you, Wiley – so glad you enjoyed the passion fruit and the photos!!

  3. Lovely photos as usual! May I ask where you buy the passionfruit from?

    • Believe it or not, they are from Fresh Direct and were just fabulous two orders in a row 🙂 Try to get some if you can and thank you for your kind words!

    I am drooling over your blog! Just so beautiful and inspirational!
    Where did you find the wonderful dessert cups? I am guessing they are vintage pewter? Is there a stamp on the bottom I could maybe find some?
    Thanks so much!! Gorgeous just gorgeous!

    • Hi, Dawn – thank you so much for your kind words! The little cups are actually vintage aluminum jell-o molds, handed down from our dear friend, Laura Bryant who has a great collection in Savannah, GA. But think you could find the like fairly easily on ebay or at the flea market. We’ve seen them around a bit and they do photograph really well.

        Thanks so much! Just after I posted I was showing them to my mom and of course she said those are mini jello molds I think! So, off to good old ETSY and there are a ton! I got 30 of them for about $40 including shipping. Can’t wait to imitate and use them for a garden party we are having!! So so so pretty!!

  5. Wow – what a great deal you got, Dawn! Enjoy the little lovelies and good luck with your party – sounds completely lovely!
