Pain au Chocolat: These are a MUST TRY!

June 20, 2008

So simple and oh so GOOD!

Trader Joes Chocolate Croissant

My sister found these at Trader Joe’s. They are a great find and fun to make. Just follow the easy directions on the box.


“Place the frozen pastries seam side down 4-5 inches apart on a very lightly buttered or paper lined baking sheet.”

Croissant oven ready

“Allow uncovered croissants to sit at room temperature for 9 hours (overnight.) You’ll be astounded by how much they grow!”

Ready to eat

“Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 20–25 minutes or until crisp and quite brown.
Cool about 10 minutes before serving.”

Et voilà! Un pain au chocolat
Close your eyes and imagine you’re in FranceBonne Appetite

Eiffel Tower View 2nd Level
Paris: To See or Not to See . . .

The last time I was in Paris, my husband, Mark, suggested we go to the Eiffel Tower. He'd always wanted to go but was put off by the long lines. 
Once we got close to the elevator, it felt as if we'd entered the tower's inner structure.  The beams that surrounded us shot out at different angles looking like . . .
