French Fridays: Le Café Gourmand

Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will know how much I like to “minify” recipes, especially desserts (because, much as I love them, there’s only so many desserts a two-person household can eat!). Given the chance, I’ll always choose a selection of mini desserts over one regular-sized one because […]
