Refrigerate until set.

Love in Paris

Love makes me think of a few months ago, when Paul and I were in Paris. The charm, walking the streets, holding hands, a quiet hush as we viewed Notre Dame, and walking through the legendary Shakespeare and Company!

Standing on the Pont Neuf (the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine) and taking it all in. We missed the golden hour, but we were in beautiful places at night.

The lights just look different in Paris–they glow. [Coming soon, a trip recap to Paris!]

What a blessing that we could visit this city that I’ve ready about my entire life. There is something about visiting a city for the first time, isn’t there?

For now, put this easy dessert on your menu this week for Valentine’s Day!

Chocolate Greek Yogurt Panna Cotta

This recipe makes 4 large portions, or up to 8 smaller servings, depending on your desired serving size. Additionally, if you prefer the dessert to be sweeter, add another 1 tablespoon of sugar.


  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk + 3 Tbsp
  • 1/2 Tbsp unflavored gelatin
  • 4-5 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1 cup whole milk greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 4 large strawberries
  • 3/4 cup whipped cream
  • Mint leaves, for garnish


  • In a small bowl, combine 3 Tbsp of milk with the gelatin. Don’t mix, and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Heat remaining 1 1/4 cup milk and 4 Tbsp of sugar in small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until the crystals dissolve completely. Next, incorporate the gelatin mixture and stir. Finally, add in the chopped chocolate, and gently whisk until it melts and the milk is smooth—do not bring to a boil.
  • Turn off heat, and and allow milk to cool slightly for 7-9 minutes, then whisk in yogurt, vanilla, and almond extract until smooth.
  • Divide mixture equally into the ramekins. Cover with plastic and chill in the refrigerator until firm—8 hours or overnight.
  • Serve each ramekin with whipped cream, a sliced strawberry, and mint leaf!
