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!


  1. Yummy...the berries the cheesecake and of course the toffee coffee cookie cookies sound and look delicious! I am sure they travels to all :)

  2. All looks so yummy! Love the silver too...

  3. I agree with Bevy, I love the forks......and I suspect that the cake was out of this world.
