Easy Brunch Dessert: Lemon Creme Fraiche & Fresh Berries

As a guest, I look for recipes that were easy to transport and possible to make ahead. (As an aside: for our feminine winter brunch, we had decided who would be responsible for which type of dish. Doing so ensures your table will contain a nice variety of foods, and not be heavy in any one category. )

Lemon Creme Fraiche with Berries Recipe

(adapted from Food.com)

This lemon creme fraiche recipe is ideal for brunches; it’s so simple, really delicious, and looks pretty adorning your table. I found that refrigerating overnight works best and, because I don’t want such an overpowering lemon flavor, I recommend adding the lemon juice in moderation until you reach your desired flavor. I prepared individual servings in small mason jars. This way I could easily transport them and they would be ready-to-eat upon my arrival. For the toppings, this three-party serving dish, covered in saran wrap was easy enough to travel with and allowed each guest to make the parfait to her liking. If you were hosting, it would be just as easy to pre-assemble these lemon creme fraiche pots in their entirety.

  • Exactly one week ago, @attybernard and I went on our last coffee date before spending the rest of the day cooking and cleaning in preparation for our little girl. Something about that day just made us feel like she wasn’t going to be long. The very next day she joined our world, and these have been the best 6 days of my entire life. 💕 #newmom #newparents #newbornbaby #pittsburghphotographer #thehappynow #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese
  • Settling into our family of three, and this guy is the best teammate a girl could ask for. I never knew I could feel so much love—I could burst. #newparents  #thehappynow #livebeautifully #postitfortheaesthetic #inspiremyinstagram #chooselovely #thatauthenticfeeling #seekthesimplicity #abmhappylife #theeverydayproject #verilymoment #darlingmovement #feelfreefeed #littlestoriesofmylife #momentslikethese #postitfortheaesthetic
  • This girl entered our worlds yesterday afternoon—exactly two weeks ahead of schedule and right at the end of the Pats game—just letting mommy and daddy know who’s gonna be in charge of the schedule from now on. #newbabygirl
  • I hear we have some snow coming Pittsburgh, friends! 💕 Am I the only weirdo who is actually excited about this? You can find me in all the cozy sweaters and blankets, snuggled up on the couch. 😍 #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers
  • I finally got a vanity at age 31. I never knew what I was missing! ☺️ #husbandwin #ikeahack #affordabledecor
  • Hard to believe how soon our little one will be joining us. Feeling all sorts of emotions, but mostly ready to meet her. I’m curious—any other moms to be out there? If so, when are you due? And those of you who are already moms, what words of wisdom would you share with those of us about to become mamas, too? #theblogsocieties #shopstylecollective #wkloveyourcloset #pittsburghblogger #discoverunder5k #discoverunder10k #pghfashion #pghblogger #stylebloggers #37weeks 📷: @julieanne514
