Round-up bread

Yes! Finally it raised and cracked up, it’s beautiful i think and much better than the last two I did. I changed slightly the recipe but i’ve done more or less the same steps so i’m not sure which elements made it work. Let’s see if I can reproduce it this week with the same … Continue reading “Round-up bread”

Banana cake

Well, my banana cake didn’t turned as I exactly wish, again! In fact I should have probably followed my classical cake recipe that I use a base for every cake alsmost I do instead of trying a new recipe. The cake is a bit dry to be honest and didn’t rise as much as I … Continue reading “Banana cake”

Burger buns

It’s day 21 of the quarantine. We wanted to eat hamburgers at home. So I thought I would make my first attempts of burger buns. I followed this recipe. They didn’t get as round as I would have wished but it’s not too bad and the taste remains good so I’m quite satisfied. They don’t … Continue reading “Burger buns”

Tarte Tatin

You probably know the different stories about the tart tatin. The sisters Tatin who lived 200km south of Paris made this tart once by mistake having cooked the apple to much and decided to put the pastry on top. When they turned down the applie pie, they have realised suddenly that the tart was beautiful … Continue reading “Tarte Tatin”

Bread, for the weekend

This time the bread wasn’t the best looking, it didn’t crack up in the oven as i wished or as the other bread i did a few days ago. It’s actually not that easy to make bread, making the dough isn’t difficult but finding the right way to ferment, raise, form and bake is the … Continue reading “Bread, for the weekend”

Meringues

When you have white eggs left over, there’s nothing easier and quicker than meringues. I followed the recipe of Mimi Thorisson to do these meringues. I love mering that are hard outside and chewy inside. These where chewys inside/outside but still good. Full of sugar yes and with a bit of chocolate coloring actually.

Bread

Yesterday’s bread was so nice, finally I had managed to make a beautiful and good bread. So today I tried again and making sure that I would let the bread rest even a bit longer. I wanted to actually make a ring shape but it raised so much that it almost closed the center 🙂 … Continue reading “Bread”

Beetroot curry

I inspired myself from an Indian food cookbook I have but had to change a few ingredients as I didn’t have everything. The issue with these type of cuisine is that you need many different spices and if you didn’t check before starting, you end up missing quite a few 😊 It was actually very … Continue reading “Beetroot curry”

Long break but back

It’s been a long time since I didn’t post any recipe. I didn’t stop cooking obviously as I like it too much, didn’t buy any ready meals neither thank god. But I just thought I’ll step back to think on how this blog could evolve or if I should just use instagram or facebook page instead. Well, … Continue reading “Long break but back”

Oven vegetables provencal

It’s Monday. It’s a public holiday and I didn’t have much in the fridge. So I made some potatoes and courgettes in the oven with some provence herbs and a quick tomatoes sauce to eat with so that it isn’t too dry.

Rice Pilaf with dried tomatoes

A simple but delicious rice to eat with a fish or meat as we did today. As I didn’t have long grain rice, I did it with basmati rice which was as delicious.

Kale & chicken wok

You can never be wrong with a wok. And you can almost throw anything good inside to make a lovely meal, the important things is to decide if you want the vegetables to be a bit crunchy or well done and the spices you want to use for the taste. If you don’t have a … Continue reading “Kale & chicken wok”

Purple carrots hummus

I’ve been talking about the purple carrots with my friend at work Ikker for a long time, and one day on my desk I found a bag with these beauties 🙂 He finds them in his local market and was kind enough to get them for me. It’s not that easy to find them in … Continue reading “Purple carrots hummus”

Veggie Millefeuille

Coming back from the gym I wanted to cook something with vegetables that I had in the fridge, and wanted to use the brick pastry that I had bought recently. It’s a mix of flavours but I liked it and thought it was different for a nice lunch. This can be prepared for your Valentine’s … Continue reading “Veggie Millefeuille”

Brioche

It’s been a long time I wanted to try to bake a Brioche. There’s nothing better for breakfast than a fresh brioche, prepared with butter obviously. There’s so many recipes out there that I thought I would inspire myself from the recipe of  Mimi Thorisson from her latest book “French Country Cooking”. I have made … Continue reading “Brioche”

SMaPi Green Juice

I can’t stop using my slow juicer machine. Usually when I buy one of these kitchen tool or toy, I use it at the beginning and then not so much. But I must say that so far I’ve been using it pretty well. An other delicious green juice, which at starts might make you hesitate … Continue reading “SMaPi Green Juice”

Squid in its ink croquettes

Next to my house there is a small bar where I had croquettes of squid in its ink. Delicious, really loved it. So I tried to do the same. It was very good but I still didn’t find the trick that she put in her own croquettes as the taste was still a bit different.

Bruschetta

I had some long slice of bread that were perfect for Bruschetta so I decided to do some apetizer to eat with my favourite Vermuth.

Falafel

It would have not won the beauty price but it was lovely and we still enjoyed it a lot 🙂 And as I didn’t take note of the recipe then I have nothing to share just than impressions and photos. I think I didn’t dry off the chickpeas sufficiently as it didn’t keep the shape … Continue reading “Falafel”
