Here we go on this sweet journey...

So... here it is, my dessert/food blog. I am known to some as the "Dessert Diva", but this is not because I have any special culinary talents or have come up with recipes on my own... Nope, I just love desserts and have come across a lot of great recipes that I and my friends love, so I decided to make a place where I can share those recipes so more people can enjoy them!

A lot of the recipe's were given to me by friends or family, so for the ones I remember, I will include the name of the person who gave it to me in the first place.

To start this off, I'll put the recipe for Clafouti, since I've made it two days in a row now (yes, we shared it with others today) and plan to make it for the wifia lunch tomorrow, too!

Clafouti
(from my friend, Sam)
Ingredients:

3 Tbsp butter
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
2.5 cups fruit of your choice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375. While it's heating, melt the butter in a 9 inch baking dish, cake pan, or pie plate in the oven.
In a bowl, mix the four dry ingredients together and then add the milk. Stir till combined. Pour batter into the melted butter. Top with fruit. Do not mix!

Bake in oven for 30-40 minutes until center is set. (I usually put foil on top at about 25 minutes to keep the edges from browning too much).

Serve warm or cold with whipped cream or ice cream.

I am so excited you are doing this! Now I won't have to make you publish a cookbook before residency is up.
