Today’s recipe comes to you courtesy of my dentist. Yes, my dentist. Some years back he shared his foolproof recipe for key lime pie, free of eggs and with only three ingredients. After my initial skepticism I became a fan of his simple version because it is really foolproof and so tasty. Now my summer client menus offer up a key lime tart with shortbread crust and several more ingredients than Dr. Joe uses but with this same simple formula that always, always pleases. Operative word here is simple.
Brain food is anything that delivers mental clarity, won’t cause you to crash after eating and is a better overall choice. Notice I avoid categorizing brain food as healthy or “good for you”. Nothing preachy here. Guilt associated with eating is not my thing. All things in moderation. For powering up the old Thinker, picture lentils, beans, grilled fish and anything under the banner of Mediterranean cuisine. For breakfast, I’m loving chia seed pudding made with coconut milk and the anti-oxidant power of green tea. Add local stone fruits and you have an entire meal of brain-boosting tastiness.
As a kid, I cooked so many desserts that my parents readily gave in to my request for parfait glasses. We purchased them at the Pleasants Hardware in our neighborhood (where all things kitchen reigned alongside tools and snow shovels) and I have them still. They have languished in the buffet drawers until now, when the urge to conjure up a comforting memory dessert made me polish them to a shine and fill them with something akin to what my childhood chef prepared for the family.
