Fresh berries and summer fruits are at their peak right now. Sweltering temperatures have been lingering. What better excuse to indulge in healthy, refreshing frozen fruit desserts like sorbets, ice cream, slushies and frozen smoothies?

But don't just settle for something out of the grocery store freezers. Allow me to introduce you to Cuisinart's newest ice cream maker: the Fruit Scoop Frozen Dessert Maker. It makes 100 percent fresh fruit desserts and drinks in about 20 minutes.

What makes this machine unique is that it comes with two paddles: one that is designed to mash and mix fresh fruit - creating textures ranging from chunky to smooth - and one that mixes and aerates ingredients to make ice cream or other creamy

The Broadmoor's ongoing "moveable feast" series called Taste and Savor has struck a chord with the local foodie population, attracting sellout crowds eager to spend a weekend learning from noted chefs and winemakers. The "moveable" part of the series is its setting, which changes within The Broadmoor's holdings with each event. Three feasts are still to come this summer.

The event Monday is titled "Broadmoor Farms to Broadmoor Tables." Although a weekend package was offered, the culinary team has opened the daylong experience to the public. It starts at 9:30 a.m. at the South Tower. From there, you will be whisked away for a tour of the Broadmoor Farms, complete with a tasting of foods grown at the farm and a cooking demonstration.

7350 Pine Creek Road, 598-8667, margaritaatpinecreek.com

Eric Viedt, co-owner and executive chef, is the mastermind behind this clever take on a lobster roll. Instead of using lobster, he dazzles the dish with a cornmeal-crusted, large soft-shell crab. The batter is seasoned with garlic powder, pepper, oregano, paprika, thyme, cayenne and salt. Once fried, the crustacean is cradled in a hot dog bun, drizzled with flavorful smoked bacon-corn remoulade and garnished with strips of red Fresno chilies, sliced radishes and scallions. House-made potato chips served on the side. Find the tasty treat on the lounge-patio menu for $16.

Recently, a member of my Jazzercise class requested I write a column on cooking tips for those with diabetes.

It sounded like a good idea and was one I hadn't explored in several years.

According to the American Diabetes Association's website, Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. It's caused by high blood glucose levels that are the result of either a lack of insulin or the body's inability to use insulin efficiently. It most often affects middle-aged or older adults and may be linked to obesity, hypertension and high levels of fat in the blood. It's usually treated with lifestyle changes, oral medications and insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas that allows a body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates
