When not in Rome, you can still do what the Romans do. Meaning, for the matter at hand : Tiramisu ! Continue reading “Tiramisu”
Who said your life will never be the same when you have kids (understand the fun is over) and it will start the second you’re pregnant and you can kiss chocolate mousse bye bye ?
Here we are proving those Debbie downers wrong on all fronts in one weekend. Reporting from the mountains where our 2 year old has become the king of the bunny slope, our baby tags along seamlessly and we’ve had a jolly time with pregnant friends savoring chocolate mousse.
Punctuality is the King’s politeness and that of the soufflé eater as well ! In other words, when your better half prepares a soufflé do her the courtesy of being on time at dinner. This will give her a chance to boast for the 5 minutes the soufflé will be risen !
There is a telltale that my monkeys are under the weather: they will loose their legendary appetite. And I know they’re on the mend when they will only eat banana bread. So here the recipe for your monkeys. No need for a doctor’s prescription, all ingredients are over the counter !
Have you heard of the chamallow test ? It’s designed to assess kid’s ability to resist an immediate temptation in pursue of a greater satisfaction but later on. Well, I can tell you my better half fails this test almost on a daily basis, when, after a long and grueling day at work, he comes home to wolf down a bag a industrial pretzel before he gets to taste that delicious dinner I made for him. And it’s bugging me. I feels almost cheated on by this pretzel bag. So in a very “adapt or die” move, I decided I will prepare nibbles, quick and easy, and he’s snacking before dinner will not be cheating anymore.
No I did not make up this name, but I did had a crush on this recipe. In the run up to Christmas, baking love cakes seemed quite befitting. So, here you go, bake love !
Taste works in mysterious ways ! All my childhood and still now, I heard my mum wonder why I did not like beetroots despite their sweetness. I, personally, feel they taste like dirt… There are a few, but still some, ingredients that are on my blacklist. And looking at this list I wonder if I’m fit to live in the US because cinnamon and sweet potato had been blacklisted for some time already… See, I never was too big a fan of the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and their mashy texture. But to keep an open mind I kept trying and here is at last a recipe to make them to my taste !
Amazing news : you can bin all your self-help books ! According to old wives tales, not only am I about to share with you a soup but also a beauty recipe. They say if you eat carrots your complexion will get brighter and so will your bum’s skin… It’s also said you’ll become more amiable if you’ve been acting like a bear with a sore head but that’s another story. If I can manage to feed you and have you look better I’m already beyond happy.
Cobblers were created when the English settlers in their American colonies were not able to bake their traditional desserts for lack of suitable ingredients. As a French settler, in my humble American colony, often struggling to find my French go-to ingredients, I felt quite entitled to bake a cobbler for our Thanksgiving dinner.
With this one there will be no need to fish for compliments ! ‘Simple, yet making an impact’ could be the motto for this fish terrine. I find it to be a great dish for a potluck luncheon at it easily serves 6 to 8 people.
