Easy, beautiful and refreshing is how I would describe this dessert. On a hot summer day, lemon flavored mascarpone tiered with crispy sweet pastry sheets and drizzled pomegranate syrup is a wonderful finish to any meal. Serves 6
Place beets in aluminum foil with 2 tablespoons of water, seal it well by pinching the edges together. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 1 hour in a 400 degree oven, or until fork tender. Peel beets and cut into wedges.
Dressing: Whisk together pomegranate syrup, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss with beets and crumble cheese over salad. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
I love this recipe for a special morning (I make my husband this on our anniversary). The perfect balance between the creamy smoothness of chocolate and the tart pop of fresh pomegranate seeds. Makes 10-12 pancakes
Tip: You can add a few chocolate chips on the pancakes after you pour the batter on the pan. I like the chocolate chips in the batter because the chips seem to get creamier and don’t get burnt.
I can’t get enough of the cream cheese and marshmallow mixture, so I thought, “How else could I use this awesome flavor mixture?” Well, why not for breakfast! Young and old will enjoy this sweet and creamy French Toast. Enjoy! Serves 4-6.
Tip: I like to soak the bread a little longer in the egg mixture so when it is cooked the bread gets to be a more “custardy” texture.
