Spring Freshness - Week 2 - Strawberry Cream Crepe Cake (Dessert Version) - France

Spring is here! It's so wonderful when the weather starts to get warmer, the grass starts getting lush and green. and the sky takes on that wonderful blue color that instantly puts a smile on your face. This year we started spring visiting Fredericksburg a beautiful German town in the Texas Hill Country with German style houses, great restaurants, rich and diverse history, delicious wine but what I love most about Fredericksburg is the lush and beautiful green countryside bursting with wildflower in vivid reds, oranges, yellows, pinks, purples and of course blue (bluebonnets the official flower of Texas are blue!). To celebrate spring I will be doing a ‘Spring Freshness Series’. Join me this spring for a fresh and delicious culinary journey around the World!
