Raspberry Amaretto Tarts

Tart raspberries perched on creamy pastry cream with a hint of amaretto make a wonderful treat-with a cup of tea, or just on their own. Make a few, or even a bunch to share with friends and I can guarantee you will be popular in the office. I used a wonderful amaretto produced in North Vancouver by a little distillery called the Sons of Vancouver, but you can substitute Grand Marnier or even pure vanilla extract if you wish. Tart shells from the freezer section at the grocery store save you a lot of time and make things much easier.

Truly the hard part will be eating only one tart at a time.

Light and summery, these tarts make use of the season's first raspberries.

Tender crepes drenched in a warm, buttery orange sauce - are they a decadent breakfast or dessert? You get to decide whether to top them with big scoops of vanilla ice cream or just enjoy as is with a cup of coffee. Either way, they will make a wonderful Mother's Day brunch. The best thing about crepes is that you can make them the day ahead and store them in the fridge, waxed paper between them ready to dunk in this sauce and serve. To make them child friendly, you can omit the Grand Marnier, but if they're just for Mom? I'm sure she'll enjoy it.

Roasting asparagus takes this salad up to the next level, giving the veggies a slightly nutty flavour. Creamy bits of egg and a lemon dressing make this salad a tasty bite, perfect for lunch with some crusty bread or served at dinner with grilled chicken. It's a great way to introduce asparagus to your kids, too! The eggs can be boiled ahead of time and be tucked away in the fridge for later, which would make this salad very easy to whip up at a moment's notice.

Kids can help you make this salad by snapping off the woody ends of the asparagus, or shaking up the dressing in a Mason jar. Why not get the whole family involved in dinner?
