Fall is in the air, it is so wonderful I just absolutely love fall. I love going into Bath and Body Works and buying anything pumpkin or apple smelling, or honestly any place in general that has those smells. So in the spirit of the leaves changing I filled my house with the smell of pumpkin spice donuts!
Recently I went to this bakery in Edmonton Alberta that is quite well known and has major line ups out the store and down the street as soon as they open. The Duchess bakery is this beautiful bakery that has these amazing glass display cases full of beautiful crafted treats. While there are a few things that caught my attention, their sweet and savory brioche tugged at my heart strings, well gut strings if there is such a thing.
I love sandwiches, not just a little bit, but a whole lot. My all time favorite sandwich is from the restaurant Earls. Seeing as I live a good half hour to any restaurant, and sometimes with little kids it can be hard to find a babysitter to go out to eat, so what better way to feed into a craving (ah see what I did FEED into a craving... no? haha) then to make it yourself. I love trying to recreate some of my favorite dishes, it gives me this little thrill like I found out their secret! Then I like to tweak it a bit so that it caters to my liking, like more cheese, because you can't get enough cheese.
So here is my take on their chicken, apple, brie, fig, spinach sandwich. I use pear because I like the taste better although apple is really good too just pick either a green apple or Fuji apple and saute it a bit to soften it.
