Being stuck home made me try a lot of stuff I never tried before. The global crisis we’re facing right now makes me feel like I need to be comforted and there is no better way for me, to bring a bit of joy, happiness and feeling of lightness than cooking some good recipes. It works all the time! As I miss Bordeaux really bad these days, and because it will probably take quite a long time before we can return, I decided to bake something that will bring me back in France. Bread and chocolate… Can’t ask for better!
When I saw this meal for the first time, I was obsessed by the beauty of it. When I knew more about what it was I was obsessed about everything. What a fantastic dish. Simple, tasty and healthy. It only takes a couple of minutes to create an unbelievable culinary experience. Jean-Felix his not a huge fan of plain yogurt so to please him, I added just a little bit of honey in his part! It’s all it took to make him enjoy that meal as much as I did … and you know what? It was really good. I think maybe next time I will put some in the entire recipe. HA-HA-HA
These little things are absolutely fantastic. The way they pop up in the oven brings a huge smile on my face and lots of child happiness in my heart! I don’t know if you have any kids but as both of us are, I can promise that this is the perfect recipe to make with them! They will love to sit in front of the oven window and watch them change. It’s exactly what we did. HA-HA-HA What??? Don’t judge … I told you … we are kids.
This bread is totally amazing! As polyvalent Zucchini is, this bread is as well. Sometimes I just eat it as a dessert, but I also use it during dinner or even as an appetizer. It goes perfectly with cheese, little pate or with a cozy winter soup. I think it’s the way I prefer this bread. You know … a garlic soup, old cheese, little pate and this amazing zucchini bread! OK I’m drooling on myself now! I will finish this post and will make all of this for dinner right away after. HA-HA-HA This is totally me … can’t talk about food and not going totally starving.
If you are following our Instagram account, no need to tell you that eggs are huge part of our menus. If I could, I would eat eggs every day. A good way I found to eat them as often as I can, is to mix them with all my other favourite ingredients. HA-HA-HA This time it’s with asparagus, butter and Parmesan cheese. WOW!!! Those four ingredients are simply perfect together!
To me, some of the best meals are the simple one. No need to go crazy with hours and hours of cooking to put something delicious on the table and to have an amazing time. As I am completely addicted to eggs, there are often part of the party! I love them in every way. Boiled, fried, scrambled, poached, hard … I don’t care!! For breakfast, lunch, dinner or late snack … No matter … I just LOVE them! So here’s one of several ways that I cook them.
The first time I saw Khachapuri it was on Instagram. I thought it was one of the coolest things to eat I ever saw. I didn’t know what it was at this moment. I did some research and I discovered that Khachapuri was a typical meal from Georgie. Apparently Khachapuri are everywhere there. You can find many versions of this popular meal but if you ask me, as soon as I saw, cheese, eggs and butter I was conquered and there was no need to look further… I had to try! HA-HA! I guess you’re beginning to know us a bit now. This is totally our type of food.
I’ve already talked to you about Paquita and my family in Spain remember? This amazing recipe of Croquetas? Well, this one is from Paquita as too! I’m so happy and lucky to get these authentic recipes from her. It’s Celia and Gemma, Paquita’s daughters, who sent me their mom’s recipe. It is simply great! They are Sister to me and I love them more than I can say. They’re still feeding me even if we are far by sending me these recipes involving and evoking all the taste and flavours of Spain … my lovely home. They’re all there and I’m in Quebec. We are not together right now but when I close my eyes and take a bite, I feel like they were here with me and I feel the warmth and the love. It helps me to wait until the next visit.
I’ve really been missing my family lately. Almost all of them live in Sweden and I don’t have the chance to see them a lot. I love them really bad! When I go to visit, our favourite thing to do is, of course, to practise Sweden’s national sport… FIKA!!! HAHAHA It consists of sitting for hours, having one or ten coffees and bakeries. Can’t get any better.
Let me introduce you to the best Japanese fish-shaped waffles!!!
How can we not fall for those lovely little fish-shaped waffles? Almost impossible. They make me feel like a child again and I love it! Of course, you can have ordinary waffles and top them with whatever you want, but taking a bite in a Taiyaki filled with melted chocolate beats everything! Yep! I’m a baby girl! HAHAHA!!! And you know what’s the best news here? You don’t have to stop at chocolate, you can fill your little Taiyakis with anything you want. How great is this!!!
