Goodbye plain old flapjacks, hello Paris bistro. These are part white flour, part rustic buckwheat crepes, filled with tart-sweet new strawberries and annointed with warm maple syrup.

A local bakery puts out samples of their newest creations each week. Premier Moisson in Montreal is a great bakery chain, offering French style breads with American efficiency. Most of their breads are good but this one was excellent. It is so simple but each bite of olive oil graced bread, topped with fresh summer tomatoes, big fat, pitted black olives, and slivers of onion is unbelievably, surprisingly incredible. Don’t make the mistake of thinking simple is not exciting. This bread is. It makes two small rounds.

I would serve this with salad or many cold salads, grilled chicken or salmon, or with hunks of different cheeses and slivers of procuitto or the spiciest, thinnest imported salami available.

 

Everyone needs something easy, fruity, and a good keeping cake. This one works with any pie fillin but blueberry makes for a fabulous tasting and good looking cake. The crumb topping is just the perfect final touch.

Usually we think of apples when we think of an old-fashioned crisp but ripe, sweet autumn pears are wondrous in this dish. Just use rip flavorful pears such as Bosc or Anjou or a combination of a few pear varieties. A touch of cranberries brings some added to colour and a light touch of spice makes this a portrait in sensuous fall flavors.

Shortcake by any other name, in any guise. This is so good; no wonder some 2500 people have downloaded this favourite BB recipe. Berries and a coating of Swiss chocolate on a buttery scone, aka rich, buttery shortcake base. This recipe is the bomb which explains why it is downloaded constantly. It has shades of country fair crossed with Black Forest Cake - Nothing but nothing is as fresh, decadent, and easy or crowd-pleasing as this cake.

Béchamel, Parmesan, Gruyere and Black Forest Ham or Turkey, all stacked high between tender crepes. Bake it in the oven, cut in wedges to serve. A signature brunch dish. There are many renditions of this dish but this is an amalgamation of the one I had growing up at a ski restaurant in the Quebec Laurentiens. The restaurant is gone but the taste of this dish lingers on.

Pecan or pumpkin biscuits would also be good here or thrown in a handful of toasted chopped pecans but plain, buttery baking biscuits in this pumpkin pie custard setting are divine.
