Boulangere en herbe

The rain's pouring since 3 days & makes this afternoon seem like already dark. Alone in the house, a cupa calling me... & my macbook too, i'm now sitting at the kitchen counter ready to share a few photos & inspiration.                            Fondant choco-poire Actually before each period of productivity, there is one of procrastination. But the fact is, that behind this apparent procrastination there is a pondering, a... [Lire la suite]

recette promise de tarte sablee choco-banane

            tarte sablée choco-banane All right, I have to come here today to share my new recipe tested 2 Sundays ago. There are some simple things in life that suffice to make us happy. Chocolate-banana'tart baked on a nice Sunday'afternoon and enjoyed on the sunny veranda is one. I used some palets bretons that I crushed with salted butter for the crunchiest crust & extra dark chocolate for the cream. Now I have to say very humbly that B.never complimented me that much for a dessert...... [Lire la suite]

Happy B-day L!

Just a quicky to give a lil brief of the weeky! Two days at B's parents for his dad's B-day. Two days at the seaside. Of some sun, of some rain. Of good eating as well. Of good talks with nice people. Of lotsa love shared.

Time went by so quick. Days have been flying. I've been meaning to write about my week-end since...well the week-end. So tonight with a sky filled with lightning and beautiful colors...

Dejeuner du dimanche

                     Sunday lunch with F. & A.               How I love these Sunday'lunches! We should do it more regularly... I'm usually not a big fan of Sundays. It's a day with hardly any life, everything's closed {except in Dubai- that's why I think I could easilly live there!}It's a day for being lazy, not doing anything productive, kind of already waiting for the next week to begin... So instead... [Lire la suite]

Blog culinaire?

          Tarte au fromage blanc I am so happy... after working on my photos for days & days, I finally got the effect I was looking for. J'use et j'en abuse now!

So today's mood brought me inspiration for une tarte au fromage blanc...  I baked it this morning: made my homemade pate brisee & filled it with some fromage frais {that's all I could find here}, cream, yogurt,...

productive day

As I started the day without coffee... trying to detox at least from cafeine- I had no big plans for the day apart from tidying, ironing, cooking, doing some paperwork, & having our friend A. for tea. But the heavy clouds which were building up on the horizon gave me an urge to cook & bake. Inspired by a few readings, I started cooking a quiche aux poireaux & fromage bleu with some roquefort, leeks, tomatoes, eggs mixed with milk & cream, supported in a flaky pastry crust with walnuts... which hubby & I...
