Tiramisu au citron, pour changer...Lemon Tiramisu, for a change...

Les tiramisu ont toujours été mes desserts "signatures" : je prépare la version classique bien évidemment , mais j'aime aussi beaucoup les détourner et proposer des déclinaisons plus originales comme celle aux marrons glacés, parfaite en hiver, celles aux abricots ou aux fruits rouges aux tonalités plus estivales ou bien encore la plus décadente d'entre toutes, au Nutella. Je n'avais en revanche jamais vu ni entendu parler de tiramisu au citron (aussi appelé "limonemisu") avant mon déjeuner au restau italien "hype" du moment, le... [Lire la suite]

Coings pochés au miel, quenelles mascarpone-amaretto/Honey-poached Quinces with mascarpone-amaretto cream

I love Williams-Sonoma boutiques! Unfortunately, we don’t have them in France, but as I am lucky enough to be a frequent traveller to the USA, I can enjoy shopping in their outlets on a regular basis. I like their thoughtful selection of cooking utensils, dinnerware, sweet and savory “treats”, and many other things. OK, it is a bit pricey, but even if one does not buy anything, just roaming through the boutique's departments is a treat for the eyes. A year ago, I stumbled upon a book edited by WS: « New York, authentic recipes... [Lire la suite]

Retour en toute simplicité...A very simple return to cooking...

Clafoutis Cerises/Amaretto à la RicottaCherry,  Amaretto and Ricotta Clafoutis I am so confused ... I do not know what to say, what excuse to find my unforgivable absence ... As you know, I had already taken a few breaks from this blog, but that long, never ...And may I dare to tell you that I am going on vacation very soon ? I am afraid my real "come-back" will have to wait until...september (OMG !). Okay, you may say, but what was the reason ?  Well, probably a bit of weariness, and the fact that I often...

L'inénarrable Gâteau au Yaourt...The ineffable Yogurt Cake...

Gâteau au Yaourt, Mascarpone et Framboises, coulis de FramboisesRaspberry and Mascarpone Yogurt Cake, Raspberry coulis I know no one around me who does not have a sweet memory linked to yogurt cake made with his/her mum or his/her Granny. Baking was not as precise as today, and it was so much fun for us to measure ingredients with the help of the actual yogurt tubs (2 tubs of sugar, 4 tubs of flour,...). And there are so many versions of this cake that you can't really get bored of it : with fruits, marbled, topped with... [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]

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. Everything went great since I had already made a mascarpone ice-cream (with no ice-cream maker necessary !) some months ago (click here) as... [Lire la suite]

Pêches Farcies aux Amaretti, Glace Mascarpone, Amaretti-stuffed Peaches, Mascarpone ice-cream

Hardly noticeable, but there are three recipes in today’s post. Everything is home-made : the Amaretti cookies, the mascarpone ice-cream and the stuffed peaches ! How wonderful is Foodie Froggy, mmmh ? Oh my god, I have read somewhere that referring to yourself in the third person, is a symptom of narcissism. Oh no, I swear that my « big head » from earlier this week only lasted a day !! It has well and truly deflated since then…This recipe announces the end of my Tuscan Menu and also many wishes* for me : first home-made... [Lire la suite]
