Toast the almonds in the oven.

Place the blackberries at the bottom of a previously buttered tart mold. Gently pour the preparation over the blackberries
Cover with almonds and put in a preheated 350 ° F oven for about 40 minutes.
TIP: Put a few drops of lemon juice in the preparation at the same time as the flavored milk prevents the blackberries from discoloring during cooking
« I find it important to talk about the forget-me-not flower, the main ingredient in this memorable herbal tea from FloralTea.
Forget-me-not is the emblematic flower of Alzheimer's society. Such a delicate little sky blue flower that means so much! She was elected emblem because her name expresses the notion of eternal remembrance. The forget-me-not symbolizes memory loss, one of the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, and invites us not to forget people with this disease and their caregivers. Take the time to call our loved ones especially this Mother's Day month.
Hence my idea of Clafoutis with Myosotis herbal tea. A heartwarming dessert to share (or deliver) with those we love. Tradition has it that the clafoutis is made from cherries with the pits, a small departure from the rule, but I don't think our French friends will blame us!
Happy Mother's Day! »
