Since Lindsey and Austin have been in France and Switzerland for almost 2 weeks now, they have been having a ton of fabulous food experiences! Here is a slide show of some of the photos they have sent:
I may not be in France, but I got to get in on the French food fun yesterday because my son needed some Pots de Creme for his AP French class party. What a simple yet extremely delicious recipe. I found the recipe on Food Network and tweaked it a little for my needs.
Pots de Creme are a very chocolaty custard pudding that are traditionally served in little pots. Thus, the word "Pots". Since my little pots needed to be disposable, I went to the Dollar Tree to see what I could find. I found these great little 4 oz. bowls that are actually the perfect size. They come 12 in a pack, which was precisely the amount I needed! So, $1.00 for all 12! You can order them online just 4 units of 12 at a time! They would be great for a wedding or bridal shower. And, if you need a lot, you can order them and have them sent directly to your Dollar Tree for free shipping! You can click on the link here or on the photo to order. I also picked up some plastic spoons. There are 48 spoons in a bag and you can order a minimum of 6 bags at a time. That is $6.00 for more spoons than you can shake a stick at! (or a spoon!)

I hope my son's class loved them! I may have to make some more. Looking at them is making me hungry!
So, if you are craving a French treat after seeing the food Lindsey and Austin are eating, here is something simple, sweet and delicious you can enjoy. I hope you do!
