Un peu de soleil du Maroc à notre table ! "Under the Moroccan sun"-like tagine !

Tajine d'Agneau aux Poires Moroccan Lamb Tagine with Pears Really, I swear the photos don't do justice to this dish. I can even say that if I had seen these pictures on someone else's foodblog, I would have thought : " my god, this lamb looks fatty !". Actually, what looks like fat is the thick pear sauce on top of the meat. I really was craving for comfort food : we have had an awful weather here; it has snowed three times in two weeks, which is very rare in Paris. Even though I do not have any moroccan origin, I...

Recettes de Fraises gratuites sur votre Iphone /A Free iphone Strawberry Recipe App

Bon, je sais, ce n'est pas du tout la saison des fraises en Europe, mais qu'est-ce que j'y peux, moi, si la Commission des Fraises de Californie a choisi le 13 décembre pour lancer son application iphone gratuite proposant les recettes de fraises d'une cinquantaine de bloggeurs de par le monde, hein ? Vous vous doutez bien que si je vous en parle ici, c'est que l'une de mes recettes (le tartare) a été selectionnée.

Crumble en accompagnement, pourquoi pas ? A Crumble as a side, why not ?

Artichauts et Courgettes en Crumble de Parmesan et NoisettesArtichoke and Zucchini with Parmesan and Hazelnut Crumble When I have guests, it is quite easy for me to decide on a menu : I try to fit my guests tastes (when I know them), their possible restrictions (vegetarians, kosher, food allergies,...), or simply my feelings of the moment. Well, I should be more precise : Choosing a starter, a main and a dessert is an easy task, but, as for the sides, I often find myself without a clue : a purée ? not classy. A gratin ? Too...

Topinambours, acte II scène II, Jerusalem Artichokes, act II

Velouté de Topinambours et Patates doucesJerusalem Artichoke and Sweet Potato Soup Oh well...I wanted to act like a non-conformist girl with my anti-detox recipe (Nutella Tiramisu), but as one says : "the leopard can't change its spots", lol ! I am a reasonnable person in every fiber of my being, this is why today's recipe is as reasonnable as me : a soup ! After I recently found out, to my big surprise, that I did like Jerusalem Artichokes, I was wondering what vegetable could strike up a friendship with them :... [Lire la suite]

Un dessert anti-detox ! An anti-detox dessert !

Tiramisu au NutellaNutella Tiramisu Good resolutions, what good resolutions ? While plenty of foodblogs are now proposing detox recipes, I am just doing the exact opposite with this totally decadent dessert ! Mascarpone cheese and Nutella, what can be richer ? And yes, just like you, I had my dose of foie gras, smoked salmon, roast poultry, bûches and so on, but I always have an itsy bitsy room  for dessert ! I got the idea from a restaurant where we had dinner last week : my hubby chose it on the menu and when he... [Lire la suite]

Pas de gâchis avec ce hachis, no "hangover" about leftovers

Parmentier de Volaille de NoëlChristmas Poultry "Parmentier" Now that I have done my homework (heehee) by sharing with you an entire festive menu last week, let's answer Ze question, that every cook fears : what to do with leftovers ? And don't think you won't have any, it is just impossible : when one makes a meal for a large party, one's eyes are bigger than one's guests' stomaches ! So, if you have some smoked salmon left, try these mini cakes. And what about roast turkey (or chicken or capon or duck or geese) ?... [Lire la suite]
