Crepes! Also known as the stuff my Parisian dreams are made of. Without fail, every time my husband and I hop the pond, I manage to indulge in at least one fruit-filled crepe a day. And with good reason, they are light, fluffy, and perfect for both breakfast and snacks, like these strawberry almond crepes and chocolate sauce!
For a simple, May-inspired filling, I’m using fresh strawberries, homemade chocolate sauce and toasted almonds. I love the combination of fresh strawberries and almonds so much that I added in a little almond meal to the crepe batter. If you can’t find almond meal, feel free to substitute with additional flour; however, make sure to add the toasted almonds on top! They provide the perfect crunch that pairs perfectly with juicy strawberries and light-as-air crepes…

I recently went to my friend’s city apartment and discovered that he was hiding a glorious, secret garden in his backyard! Not only did he have lemons, apples, rosemary and even sorrel, he had the ripest, juiciest, sweetest strawberries that were just waiting to be picked. He kindly let me “harvest” them and I proudly went home with my fresh, organic strawberries.
Of course, I knew I had to make something as beautiful as the strawberries were, so out came these refreshing strawberry coconut popsicles. I love them because they’re so beautiful, easy to make, and gluten free!

Guys, I think I’m onto something. And that something is top off everything with chocolate. Last time I shared frozen chocolate chip cookie dough sundaes smothered in chocolate shell, and this time I did it again. Today I’m sharing a sandwich-y spin on a classic combo– strawberries & cream.
These mini croissantwiches are creamy yet sharpened with a sweet tang from a hint of balsamic in the strawberries. The petite size is perfect for any upcoming celebration, especially considering wedding season is here! These would be perfect for showers or girly brunch…
