French Fridays – oeufs en cocotte aux champignons

As the temperatures get cooler, I’m ready for a bit of what the French call “le cocooning” (basically being a homebody which I already am but even more so in the winter) and of course, along with that, goes comfort food. In the winter months, I love nothing more than a leisurely breakfast that’s a […]

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Bettelman

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi was one I wasn’t too keen on. A “Bettelman” is basically a bread pudding invented by the Alsatians to use up stale bread or brioche and I’m not a huge fan of bread pudding type desserts. This one is a little different in that the […]

Tuesdays with Dorie (Dorie’s Cookies): Maple-Star Anise Cookies

I made this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Dorie’s Cookies a couple of times in the middle of a busy weekend when I didn’t really have the time to be making them once, let alone twice… First time around, I halved the recipe and popped them in the oven. So far so good (though […]

French Fridays: Tartelettes au citron

Yesterday’s easy lemon curd was always destined for one of my favourite desserts – tarte au citron – although I’ll admit it was very difficult to NOT just eat the lot out of the bowl! It’s THAT good! There are a couple of different kinds of lemon tart – a firmer, baked version and one […]
