French Mille Feuille Dessert Recipe

I’m very excited to share this new French Mille Feuille Dessert Recipe my husband taught me, how about a funny story?

Today is the 10th–it’s blog hop day!  I really love this fun blog hop I do with my blogging friends each month. It’s a fun creative process to be given a theme and then see what everyone comes up with from that theme. This month our theme was STRIPES! My initial thought was to do something around my house with stripes. I LOVE stripes in my clothing, but couldn’t think of something to do in my home. My husband (who may or may not be excited about the idea that I am working on a room a month) who thought it was silly of me to make a stripes home decor item that we’d then have to “store.” He suggested I make something that doesn’t take up real estate in our home. As we sat on the couch and I thought I could make something to eat, I heard the faintest whisper from him as he dreamed about a favorite treat he had in France years ago…”mille feille.” I looked to him and said, “what?!?” And he said, “many layers…stripes.” He then explained the french delicacy of a dessert with thousand leaves or many layers also known as a Napoleon. Scroll on down for the recipe and process.

Citrus Photography Art Prints

I love photographing food lately, it has become a new art medium for  me. I’ve photographed people for so long, it actually is a challenge to stage food, just so. I love the way citrus colors blend together: limes, oranges, and lemons are so cheery and happy.  I shared my Fresh Squeezed Limeade post earlier in the week, and mentioned that I use limes several times a week with almost any Mexican meal. I also shared my Creamy Jalapeno Ranch Dip which has lime juice in it, and with my cheesy Queso, I liven up my chips with lime juice, too!

The citrus colors have always made me  happy, and I’d wanted to pull them together for some art prints for my home.

I’d love to see if you print them in your home! I suggest printing a 16×20 or larger if you are placing on your wall. If on a table top, an 8×10 or 5×7 will work. Sams Club or Costco 16×20 prints are very economical at around $5 each, just remember to un-check the box that says to color correct or it will likely turn out dark.  Do you like this stuff? More photography art prints in the future?
