You’ll Be Hungry Now

This is the post where I show you two delectable treats over the weekend.

Breakfast on Sunday was inspired yet again by a picture on Pinterest.  You’re not on Pinerest, are you?  What a time suck.  But by golly, have I gotten some grand ideas from it!

Anyway this is french toast made with angel food cake rather than bread, topped with strawberries and maple syrup, along with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.  On the side are Vermont Maple breakfast sausage links.

As soon as Oona saw her plate she said “Oh I am going to finish this!!”

And it certainly was finish – worthy,

For dessert later in the day I made a Raspberry – Pistachio Tart.

The first time I ever had a Raspberry – Pistachio Tart was at Mrs. London’s Bakery in Saratoga, NY.  Everything at Mrs. London’s is to die for, but all of us particularly took to the Raspberry Pistachio Tart.

I’ve spent years trying to re-create it at home.  We don’t live anywhere near Saratoga, or I’d simply go buy one whenever the craving hits.

However, after several years of trying various things, I think I’ve got it.

The tart has a pistachio cream filling and fresh raspberries on top.


Also, so very close.

Either way, if you’re ever in Saratoga, GOOD LORD go to Mrs. London’s!
