You never forget your first, right? Today’s dessert will always be a special one because it was my first makeover. I’d been working in a restaurant in Boston for about a year when the chef gave me the opportunity to become Pastry Chef. My test was to come up with a menu that would “wow” both the chefs and the owners. I immediately got to work, and my kicked up strawberry shortcake got me the job!
Happy Friday guys! I know things have been a bit quiet around here lately, and that’s because I was on vacation. A much needed and extremely relaxing cruise to Bermuda, and it was fantastic! I’m finding that I’m still in vacation mode, you know that whole I need a vacation when you get back from a vacation thing? I know, it’s a tough life I lead Anyway, I thought a nice light, boozy cookie would be a great way to get back into the swing of things.
Most people kick off summer by firing up the grill. I prefer to kick it off with my margarita granita. Yes the warm weather is finally here, and I’m all about going to the pool, getting pedicures, and enjoying margaritas. This granita takes margaritas to a whole new level of fabulous!
