Crostata à la Confiture de Cerises des Soeurs Jumelles Toscanes, the Super Tuscans' Cherry Jam Crostata

Each time I go to the USA, and, to my great pleasure, this happens quite often, I load my travel bag with american food magazines : Food&wine, Bon Appétit, Saveur, etc...and my last discovery : Foodnetwork magazine from the eponymous TV channel. But quite funny enough, the recipe that caught my attention among all those yankee foodzines was an...Italian one ! In Bon Appétit, I stumbled upon an interesting article about two twin Tuscanian sisters, professional winemakers and amateurs cooks during their leisure time. Maybe it was... [Lire la suite]

Cerises sur le clafoutis/Little work, lots of yumminess : Cherry clafoutis for dessert !

La Pistache m'a "tuer"...Killing me softly with these cakes...

Petits Moelleux Pistache-griottesPistachio and Griottes (sour cherries) melt-in-your-mouth Mini Cakes My regular readers know that I am fond of pistachio in sweet recipes. Whole, chopped, powdered or in paste, give me them all !!  It is a fact that my little love handles don't say "thank you" to them, but hey, have I ever said I was a reasonnable person ? That being said, it was totally predictible that I would deeply  fall in love with these decadent pistachio and sour cherry mini cakes, seen in Christophe... [Lire la suite]
