French Fridays: Tatin de légumes (Vegetable tarte tatin)

I’ve been in France just over a week now and have managed to hook up my phone/ Internet and TV services (anyone who lives or who has lived in France will know that this is a major accomplishment!) which is making blogging a lot easier! I also had the pleasure of spending a few days […]
