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.

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sticky Sesame Cauliflower

Sesame Chicken is one of my all time favorite Chinese take-out dishes. Despite my affinity for it, the summer is slowly approaching and I’m doing everything I can to cut unnecessary calories and fat, without compromising flavor. For example, although we’re breading our Cauliflower, we’ll avoid a ton of excess fat and calories by baking our florets instead of frying them. Even though this is a healthier choice than traditional Chinese take-out, no flavor or comfort factor is compromised.
