Very Berry Bruschetta

Very Berry Bruschetta

Bruschetta variations are common these days, inspiring me to make some of my own. My version has mixed berries and basil leaves topping cheesy toasted baguette slices. The rich cheese taste goes well with the sweet and tangy berries and the basil leaves' burst of flavor. A colorful dish, it's a perfect match with Champaign as an appetizer, with coffee or tea as a dessert, or as a great party food. They can be served room-temperature or warm.

Berry-Maple Bread Pudding

Berry-Maple Bread Pudding

A good friend of mine gave me a very cute set of measuring spoons, and as a show of appreciation and friendship to her, I created this tasty dish. It is a maple syrup egg custard with croissants and a very sweet berry sauce. With the butteriness of the croissants, the sweetness of syrup, and the slight tanginess of the berries, this is a wonderful combination. The colors of berries brighten up your table, too! This dish is great for both dessert and brunch.
