La Fraise

Strawberry just doesn't have the same ring to it as the French translation..... However you may pronounce strawberry, it has a universal appeal that is pleasing to most.
Tonight I made a syrup from the large and juicy, red all the way through, fresh strawberries. Our berries are in season now . That's about the only wonderful thing about January!
I cleaned two baskets of the berries and placed them in a medium saucepan along with two tablespoons of water and one tablespoon of sugar. I reduced the syrup until it reached the consistency I was looking for and then added 2 teaspoons of Cointreau. One minute with the immersion blender and the berries became a velvety-smooth sauce for my crepes! A very quick and easy dessert .........

Wow, this looks like a spanking brand new blog! I just started a new one (my third) on the same day with the same template! More than coincidence???

Thanks for your nice comments about my daughters illness. She's doing better.

You just brought back some very sweet memories for me. My passion (or shall I say obsession) with Paris came after my first taste of crepes in French class in the 6th grade. Wow, I just remembered another "beginning".

And wow, I chose the same template for my blog!
