Baked Camembert

It is actually 'fried' rather than baked.  Because traditionally this melty and dreamy cheese dish is baked, I've decided not to change its name. Now, this should not be your typical everyday dinner idea. It is more a "reward" after a day of skiing in winter or after a long day of swimming in summer. 
The combination of camembert and blueberry jam is divine.

Lemon Granita

I call this FIFA World Cup 2014 ultimate dessert (even though I made it for Father's Day for the first time)  It is so refreshing - a true summer quick treat perfect for bigger crowd.! You can even add some of your favorite alcohol  depending if your team is wining or loosing :)

Plum Clafoutis

Fruit tress are full of fruits in our garden: pluots, apricots,blueberries,figs.This means lots of fun for me in the kitchen these days! I am making apricot jam- by far my favorite jam. But I also tried my luck with this Plum Clafoutis.

"I need something sweet right now" dessert

It is a strawberry season! I invented this quick dessert the other night when I was craving something sweet yet refreshing. I picked some strawberries, big spoon of creme fraiche, a 1/2 tea spoon of cocoa powder and a drizzle of maple syrup (honey would be better -I just did not  have any at a moment)

Delicious and refreshing!
