French Fridays: Plum and almond cream tart

Hello and happy French Friday!  I’m writing this from Dublin where we are spending a couple of days before we head home.

Tuesdays with Dorie (Dorie’s Cookies): Vanilla Polka Dots

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Dorie’s Cookies is so simple but has a bit of “wow” factor both in appearance and taste (especially when made with French butter!). Dorie says: There’s a lot to be said for simplicity, and these cookies say it elegantly. They are made from the Do-Almost-Anything Vanilla Cookie Dough, […]

A Letter from Paris

This is part of my Summer Reads series where I’ll be reviewing a series of “not just cookbooks”. This week’s selection for Summer Reads is part-mystery, part-memoir, part-history book set in wartime and post-war Europe and Australia and once I started it I couldn’t put it down. I read it in one sitting – again, […]
