I made these recently for a child's afternoon Tea Party.
They're one of my favorites.
These delicate meringue-based beauties are named after 
the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. It was said, "She does not dance; she soars as though on wings."  The meringue was made in resemblance of her Tutu.

They're a meringue dessert with a crisp crust,soft and light on the inside, topped with fruit and 
whipped cream.
They'll melt in your mouth...the perfect summer dessert.

A toute a l'heure!

New Desserts

Tiramisu Dessert Shots

I love making these....

Flourless Chocolate Cake & Chocolate Mousse

If you're a passionate chocolate lover, this dessert is for you. It's layers of a rich flourless chocolate cake and silky chocolate mousse.
It's chocolate heaven! 



I was inspired to make these choquettes  that I would buy everyday, at the patisserie, just a few steps away from the flat I was renting while in Paris. Missing them.... I made them when I got back home. They are one of my favorites!

My Time in Paris and Provence

I was blessed to spend an unforgettable month in Paris and 3 days in Provence.
The sights of old historic architecture, the smells of baguettes, croissants and beautiful pastries from the patisseries and boulangerie's that are on almost every corner, the sound of women's hi-heels click clacking as they walked down the streets, sitting on a bench in a park close by my flat, watching children play as I wrote in my journal, listening to the Parisians as they converse in French, a language that sounds like music.Walking everywhere, taking the metro all around this amazing City of Lights,going to the ballet at the Paris Opera House, then 3 Days in Provence,the Mediterranean was breathtaking. 

I hope you enjoy my pictures and memories of my time in Paris and Provence.

Bon jour.....I leave for Paris soon......I found the cutest, most charming flat in the 15th  Arrondissement. Close to the Le Cordon Bleu, where I will be taking another pastry class, go to Versailles, take the euro rail to Provence, and eat lots of croissants.What could be better than eating a croissant , sitting on the bank of the Seine. It's another dream come true.....I have been planning this for a little for a year, but planning it in my heart for years.The planning and preparation has been half the fun. I can't believe how quickly the year has gone by.I'm learning French phrases, like " Ou est la station de metro", which means where is the metro station.It's been fun and a challenge , but I'm determined.

I will be posting pictures lots and lots of pictures, so be sure and follow my blog.
A touts a l'heure!
