Bon Voyage!

Shortly before we left for our trip to Peru we had the honor of hosting a little au revoir dessert for our darling friend Katie.

Katie left for six months to study outside of Brussels.  This is her second study abroad experience through Clemson University, and I am just a little jealous. 

So we gathered on a Sunday night to celebrate Katie and bless her amazing travel and opportunity. I thought about attempting macarons, but decided to go with what I knew I could accomplish, so we served sugar cookies and coffee-toffee shortbread.


 I pulled out the Haviland Limoges china to add a little French flair, and I’ve decided I need to use these beautiful dishes more often in the new year.


Beautiful blackberries and strawberries made a fresh counterpart to the rich, buttery cookies.


But the piece de resistance was the French cheesecake made by Katie!


Light and lemony with a sponge cake base, it was divine!  Katie found the recipe on La Tartine Gourmand, a beautiful and inspiring blog.

And so, without further adieu, bon voyage, Katie!

We miss you!
