Muffins ou Cupcakes ? Muffins or Cupcakes ?

Raspberry, Fig and Rosemary Muffins/Cupcakes like a TiramisuMuffins framboises, figues et Romarin/Cupcakes comme un Tiramisu Well, I ‘ll have both of them, please ! ! Rarely do I participate to foodblog games. Not that I am a snobbish or something, but I have some problems with the word « deadline ». So, today I have decided to go for not only one but two games ! One for Muffin Monday #10 which asked for pink muffins and the other for Sugar High Friday, organized by Fanny from Foodbeam , a special event about cupcakes. And... [Lire la suite]

Pas peu fière…le Framboisier de Christophe Felder, Quite proud of myself…Christophe Felder’s Framboisier

Looks like a Daring Bakers Challenge, has the color and the shape of it, is as time-consuming, but it is not a DB Challenge. I have decided, all by myself, to push the limits of my pastry skills and try to make this wonderful cake. Well, actually, I did not really have choice : when one has 17 guests (!!), one can’t decently make little adorable individual desserts ! Now you’re going to ask me : what is a Framboisier and who is Christophe Felder ? A Framboisier is a cake made of two layers of dacquoise (mixture of whipped egg whites... [Lire la suite]

Kolokythokeftedes (beignets de courgettes) comme dans les Cyclades/ Kolokythokeftedes (zucchini balls) just like in the Cyclades

I know, you are slowly getting bored with my holiday souvenirs. But really, I can’t get rid of these wonderful memories. We have been back for only three weeks and I am already feeling sooooooooo tired ! I can’t believe it. So as to not literally exhaust the old woman in me, do you mind if I share a very simple recipe today ? But of Greek inspiration, of course.You should have seen my face with an expression of glazed stupefaction when I saw my zucchini-phobic kids make a feast of the little green balls. Just for...

Oubliez la grisaille, suivez-moi, je vous emmène à Santorin...

Forget the rainy weather, follow me, I'm taking you to Santorini Island... Santorini and I, a love story that started two years ago by a totally unexpected "love at first sight".As soon as I disembarked from the high speed boat which had departed from Crete, I had the feeling that I had found a place often visited in my night dreams. We are well travelled people, and we don't like to visit the same destination more than once, but last summer, we were missing Santorini too much. We had to go back, it was a physical need....

Et en lot de consolation, des Chouquettes et des Meringues !

I had told you in my last post that I had been utterly disappointed with my chocolate eclairs. But I had not said my last word !! I found an enlightening consolation to forget all about my semi failure : I have transformed the egg whites and cream puff dough leftovers into cute mini-chouquettes and lovely meringues. Ah, sweet things have such a strong healing power ! Stronger than chocolate, I can tell you ! My only problem was the sudden irruption in my kitchen of my little froggies, attracted by the decadent smell. And you... [Lire la suite]
