If you were inspired by this week’s Medical Examiner to chow down on some fresh fruit, you’ve got the right idea. The question is, will you go for peaches? Apples? Green grapes or purple ones? Watermelon? Bananas? Blackberries? Blueberries? Kiwi? Plums? Cantaloupe? Strawberries? Raspberries? Or yet another juicy and delicious choice? Whatever you choose, the awesome thing about fruit is that it’s ready to eat instantly. Try that with a steak directly harvested from a cow. On second thought (and on the advice of our attorneys), do not try that.

There’s no need to complicate things with fruit. As military types might say, fruit is the ultimate MRE. Even so, there are a million ways to jazz up fruit in a recipe. But we’re still talking ridiculously simple.

• A box of any type of white cake mix
• any frozen fruit (I prefer peaches or blueberries)
• and a Sprite Zero.
Lay the fruit out in a baking pan, shake the cake mix to cover all the fruit, then pour the Sprite Zero over the mix. Make sure you coat all the mix! Pop it in the oven at 350° for about 30 mins.
It is deelish! Comes out kind of like a cobbler.

It doesn’t get any easier than that, folks, and to quote the chefette, “It is deelish!”

Here’s another example of how ridiculously easy it is to prepare DEELISH fruit for your family unit.

EXHIBIT B, a.k.a. Strawberry Cobbler
This one is so easy a child can do it, as you can plainly see below.
• Cover the bottom of an 8×8 casserole dish with 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries sprinkled with 3 Tbsp sugar and 2 to 3 Tbsp of butter (see upper right photo).

• Over that berry base pour a blended mixture of 1 cup of milk, 3/4 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of self-rising flour (see lower left photo).
Bake at 350° for 1 hour. Results: see lower right photo.
