Earl grey Choux a la Creme

Earl grey Choux a la Creme

I lived in Paris for a long time, and my kids were raised there, so this french dessert is a little taste of home. My girls and I have always loved afternoon tea, and we still love small little finger treats you can eat with a delicious cup of tea in the afternoon. This dessert was a way to combine the idea of tea, high tea desserts, and our home in Paris.

Grilled French Toast Napoleon

Grilled French Toast Napoleon

Who doesn’t love French Toast? Especially Stuffed French Toast! But the fat & calories relegate it to a decadent breakfast treat we only allow ourselves on special occasions. My grilled version swaps butter for a scant bit of healthy olive oil. Substituting agave for white sugar & Greek yogurt for cream cheese also decrease fat & calories & increase health benefits. The vitamins in fresh fruit & a homemade strawberry balsamic drizzle seal the deal. No you can have French Toast whenever you want!

Lake Placid Citrus Cheesecake Tart

Lake Placid Citrus Cheesecake Tart

Several years ago, my husband and I vacationed in the lovely town of Lake Placid, in New York state. There we found a traditional diner offering a delicious breakfast option of plain yogurt topped with grapefruit and orange segments, and nutty granola. That combination inspired this citrus cheesecake tart. The cheesecake portion is lightly grapefruit flavored, but I always include orange segments as part of the garnish.
