I’m back again this week with an awesome dessert that will “wow” your family and guests! Lately, I have been trying to copycat recipes and transform them from high fat to low fat. Well this is a classic brûlée that is super easy to make, 4 ingredients, pretty to serve and won’t tamper with your waistline.
Here’s what you need to do…
10 medium-large strawberries, quartered
1 cup of fresh blueberries ( you can mix and match your fruits here….nothing wrong with getting creative and just using whatever you have in the fridge, I would suggest berries and stone fruit for a good time)
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, 2% or whole or low fat, (you choose the fat percentage depending on what size your skinny jeans are and whether or not you can’t close your zipper lately)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, divided (* if you can’t find or don’t have Turbinado Sugar you can always substitute brown sugar….if you don’t have brown sugar you will need to haul yourself into the car and go to the grocery store unless you want to attempt to make this with white sugar….I’m pretty sure you can torch just about anything)
1. In three medium ramekins or six small ones, fill each about 3/4 of the way up with your berries.
We love sweets…who doesn’t? But when sweets are this gorgeous and delicious, we just have to share. Meet Clare, creator of Clarelicious…Custom Baked Goods and all things delicious. And we can guarantee they are delicious. If you have been following along, we first introduced you to Clare at The Biggest Baby Shower and then again at Alexandra’s 1st Birthday celebration. Clare is as genuine as they come. The passion she has for baking and creating is undeniable. Check out this cookie she made for us at our first meeting? We were blown away. Not only by her talent but by how spirited and charismatic a person she is. We loved finding out more about Clare and we hope you do too!
What inspired you to start Clarelicious? I have loved cooking and baking since I was a little girl. My mother is a wonderful baker and we can spend hours talking recipes. She bought me a children’s cookbook and I would pour through it trying to figure out what I could make next. After spending most of my life as an opera singer and on the business side of classical music, I was ready for a change. After posting pictures on Facebook, people started asking if what I made was for sale. I said yes and it has grown quickly from there. It really is a dream come true.
When throwing a shower there’s no reason not to keep it super simple. Less is more. White is chic.
We recently styled a shoot for a wedding shower and took a stab at a few Chex Party Mix recipes to serve up and I gotta tell you something…um, wow. I developed a major addiction.
While Michelle slaved away with Marshmallow fluff in the kitchen…I was trying to set the scene. But the sweet and saucy smell drew me in and I soon found myself knee deep in The Wedding Day Chex Mix.
To serve we found the most adorable letter bowls to spell out XO.
From the cupboard we had an old square of fabric which we turned into a triangle runner.
To drink we used shatterproof champagne glasses. Ready to toast the bride to be!
Have you ever tried the Sofia Coppola cans of champagne? They are the cutest.
What’s a party without stripe-y straws? I mean c’mon. Don’t.
My favorite thing about a shower? A good favor. Cartons of that Wedding Day Chex Mix, Yes please. Tie it with a fat piece of hot pink ribbon and there you go. Thanks for coming!
Of course if you are having a shower in the NYC area and need a photographer….we will tell you to call on Raquel. She was the darling photographer of the photos you see in this post today.
