Tomorrow is Mothers’ Day and for those of you who are still looking for a quick dish to add to a brunch table or even a dessert, I have the perfect thing. Little pots of jam and cream.
That’s right. Jam. And cream. Cream cheese, to be exact. I am thrilled to announce that I have been selected as a Real Women of Philadelphia Ambassador for 2013 and my first post is all about recipes inspired by mum.
These little pots of jam and cream might not look like much but they remind me of not only my mum’s cooking but also of the year I lived in Belgium where four lovely ladies took the place of my mum during that time…
These were my attempt to recreate the fromage blanc/ confiture that would appear with great regularity on the breakfast table in Belgium…
The best way I knew how to do this was to find the best quality preserves/ jams I could and layer them with a lightened-up version of my mum’s coeur à la crème (which I make different versions of with great regularity).
Easy and pretty and also, pretty easy to customise depending on what jam flavours people like…
Is it dessert? Is it breakfast? Or is it good for any time of day?
And tell me – how has your mum inspired your cooking/ love for food?
Disclosure: I have received compensation for developing a series of posts for the Real Women of Philadelphia website in 2013.
