Crème Brulée with Sea Salt Chocolate

Inspiration:  My mom ordering crème brulée every time we go out for dinner and then sharing it with everyone.

I used to make this recipe a long time ago.  I am always surprised at how easy it is to make but how truly decadent and delicious it is.  For me, it is a no fail desert recipe.

Acadian Cinnamon Swirls (Vegan)

Inspiration:  Pets de soeur - a French Canadian treat.

I have an old binder that is filled with recipes that I have collected over the years. Some have been torn out of magazines and some have been generously shared by friends and family.  Every once in a while I will pull out to take a look and, although some of the recipes date back over 20 years, they always serve as great inspiration.

This recipe for cinnamon swirls or "pets de soeurs" as they are known in French, was given to me and even though I can't be certain of whose recipe it was, I'm pretty sure it was a family member.  Originally created using the leftover trimmings of pie crust dough, they became a staple in the French Canadian culture during the Holidays when tourtières (meat pies) were being prepared.
