Champagne Custard Shooters!


 I love champagne and if you follow my blog or Facebook know that! So when New Year is about to explode with fireworks, I'm pulling a few bottles of Champagne out of the cellar and popping the cork! And.....I go one step further I'm combining my favorite bubbly with my other favorite...... "dessert"!!

Chicken Tenders with Champagne sauce!

This delicious dish can be prepared in about 30 minutes and can be made ahead and reheated! The champagne sauce is so flavorful and presentation so beautiful, makes this a perfect dish for a small dinner party,

The cream sauce is seriously out of this world, so tangy with a hint of champagne flavor that melts in your mouth....AMAZING!! Coupled with the browned up bits from searing the chicken, this sauce is EPIC!! I may try it next time with angel hair pasta!

Chocolate Almond Torte

On Christmas Eve or Christmas day, this is perfect— a flourless, chocolate-almond torte for dessert. I can tell you everyone went silent at the table, when I served this delicious dessert and the silence was followed there any left? Can I have another slice?
