Cherry Almond Crisp is a celebration of late summer cherries that are at peak sweetness during their short August season. The bubbling filling has both fresh cherries and dried tart cherries for a contrast of texture and flavor. The oat crumb topping is given extra crunch and subtle nuttiness from the addition of sliced almonds.
Banana Bread is one of those all-purpose recipes that works nicely as breakfast, a snack or as the answer to a nagging sweet tooth.

Though diminutive in size, my Cherry Almond Petit Fours are big on flavor. The cake layers get a boost of sweetness from almond paste, and the cherry preserves add wonderful tartness. The shell encasing the cake is a smooth-as-silk white chocolate glaze that is finished with piped vanilla buttercream.
Chicken with Fines Herbes Sauce is a classic recipe from my time at culinary school.

This tasty dish takes under an hour to put together and a mix of bright green herbs add flavor and flare to the sauce for easy presentation.
