Daring bakers Challenge : Flourless Chocolate Cake, Gâteau au Chocolat sans Farine

White&Black Chocolate Cake, no-ice-cream-maker Mascarpone Ice-cream, Easy Caramel SyrupGâteau au Chocolat Black&White, Glace Mascarpone sans sorbetière, Sirop de Caramel facile An easy challenge this month, but with a touch of technique skills though for we were asked to make our own ice-cream and topping to accompany this wonderfully melting-in-the-mouth flourless chocolate cake.

Salsa Verde sans prétention, No-frills Salsa Verde

Dessert mi-glacé pour hiver plus que glacial/A half frozen dessert for a frosty winter

SemiFreddo à l'Orange Sanguine et aux AmarettiAmaretti and Blood Orange SemiFreddo It might seem odd to crave for a frozen dessert in the middle of an extremely cold winter, but when you think of it, it is not that strange : following warm appetizers and main dishes, it can be an extremely pleasant tongue sensation. Moreover, semifreddo, a half frozen mousse, is a  refreshing and quite "light" way to end a comfy meal.
