Coconut quinoa flans with mango, rum and mint salad

Pudding de quinoa à la noix de coco et salade de mangues à la menthe et rhum I had a lot of fun this weekend, playing in my kitchen. I love to spend time trying out new recipes and exploring new ideas. Unfortunately it does not happen as often as I’d like due to lack of time, and trying to [...]

Gluten free almond cake

Gâteau aux amandes sans gluten I have been playing around with this recipe for a while, changing quantities and I finally managed to like this version which is moist and soft. I am not necessarily pro or against gluten. I think if people have problems with it, then it should be removed from one’s [...]

Bread or brioche? – Raisin bread with a swirl

Pain ou brioche? – Pain au raisins en spirale I reconciled with cinnamon thanks to Rui, my lovely Japanese neighbor. I decided I didn’t like cinnamon after moving to the US, where cinnamon is used in almost every dessert. I think I had a cinnamon overdose and refused to eat anything where I could [...]

A Simple brioche – One French brioche among others

Une brioche toute simple, mais si moelleuse – Une brioche parmi tant d’autres This brioche is simple, quite unpretentious and low-key, light, fluffy but nonetheless very tasty, just like we enjoy to have on some mornings with butter, jam and strong coffee. There are many versions and kinds of [...]

As delicate as a flower – Quince preserve

Aussi délicate qu’une fleur – Gelée de coings I have been completely away from my computer and the internet world since I arrived in Nancy. The weird thing is that when I come home, I just disconnect completely from my computer and phone. I like the slow pace, relaxed energy and long walks in the [...]

It's quince time! – Grilled brioche sandwich with ricotta, honey and caramelized quince

C’est la saison des coings! – Sandwich de brioche grillée à la ricotta, miel et coings caramelisés Again, one of those days where I made a trip to la Boulange to get some Brioche, among many other things…I keep forgetting that Whole Foods distribute it. We are so used to savory sandwiches that I [...]

Apple games – Apple, ricotta, raisins and almond butter pancakes

Jeux de pommes – Galettes de pommes, ricotta et beurre d’amande I started this little post a while ago and never managed to finish it, since I have a 30 minutes break in between this craziness move, I just wanted to finish it and move on. Originally I wanted to make savory frittelle with the [...]

My finger got stuck in the jar – Ebelskivers stuffed with Nutella

Mon doigt s’est coincé dans le pot- Ebelskivers à la nutella Well, I would have never thought to make something with Nutella…Usually, I don’t cook with Nutella, I just eat it from the jar, and when the jar is half empty, I use my fingers. No worries, I do not stick my finger in any jar that I [...]

Something for breakfast…or not – Mini Manqué pear cakes with blackberry jam

Une petite douceur pour le déjeûner… ou pas – Mini manqués aux poires et la confiture de mûres Not that I particularly love to celebrate my birthday as a great or special day at all, but it’s the nostalgic side of me that talking. I like to do something different every year because I want to [...]
