Homemade Baguette Recipe

Homemade French Baguette

The last time I introduced a post about the Baguette it was for the Apéritif (French Happy Hour with wine and more food!). But the Baguette is so versatile. From the breakfast to the dinner it makes everything taste better! In the morning,  I love to spread some butter and natural jam on my tartine (like a lot of French people). For lunch or dinner, the French bread is perfect with a salad or any meat dishes “en sauce” such as boeuf bourguignon. And for a quick, yet yummy snack, top your Baguette with some butter and dark chocolate. Now you understand what French people traveling abroad are missing the most… Their bread! Anyway, making a homemade Baguette is not as hard and time-consuming as you can expect….

3 best French Crêpes fillings

French Crepe

As you probably know, as French, we love crêpes. First, because it’s really good, but also very versatile. When I was young, my mother started a fun family tradition. Every Sunday, she used to make crêpes and prepare bowls full of fresh vegetables and different choices of meat. Now, I can clearly see what was her secret goal for us: eating our veggies. And to be honest it worked! With my sister, we always had a lot of fun mix matching ingredients to fill our crêpes. So, whether it is to eat a healthy meal or to make it easy for the cook, rest assure that a French Crêpe Bar will make everyone happy! Before starting and if you missed it, here’s Anne-Sophie Grandma’s crêpe recipe….

Sweet & Savory Breakfast Sandwich

Most of us don’t spend time making breakfast during the workweek. An instant coffee and banana usually tide us over until lunch. Sunday, on the other hand, is the perfect day to prepare a delicious brunch. I’m a huge fan of breakfast sandwiches, because they usually include lots of cheese and a runny egg. YUM. The coupling of sweet and savory is one of my favorite combinations, so today’s brunch will marry the two perfectly and leave you craving more. The following recipe is for one person. If you’re having friends over for bottomless mimosas and brunch, alter accordingly! Preparation Time: 5 min Cooking Time: 25 min Ingredients for 1 serving 2 slices of sourdough bread 1 egg, cooked as desired 2 slices of bacon (optional)…

Bottomless Pear Mimosas

Sunday is, by far, the best day of the week. Sunday’s tradition with my friends for the last year has been nothing short of a great time. We get brunch and drink bottomless mimosas. Then we wander over to the next bar to sing our hearts out at karaoke. Finally, we head back home to catch up on all the latest shows. Recently, we’ve decided to change things up a bit. We make brunch at home and we’ve even tweaked the classic mimosa. Instead of karaoke and Netflix, we cook dinner together and play Texas Hold ‘Em. Sundays are still awesome, especially with this easy recipe: a twist on the classic mimosa. The sweet taste and subtle citrus notes of juicy pears coupled with sparkling…

Pissaladière (French onion tart) recipe

I discovered the delicious Pissaladière recipe when traveling in South of France few years ago. Since then, every summer I make this yummy recipe for our annual family potluck brunch and everyone loves it! It makes a really tasty dish and is well paired with a simple green salad.

After our delicious autumnal mugcake -  here is another chestnut recipe for you to enjoy this summer.

Plus, they’re an important sources of vitamins and minerals too! Well, now you can make a quality chestnut milkshake in...

The best French Vinaigrette

The Vinaigrette is a French cuisine must. Super easy, bright flavors, passed from generation to generation and so good! Living in the States for the last 2 years, I can count on my hand the times I had a very (very) good salad.

It’s the dressing: the inimitable Vinaigrette that perfectly coats each leaf and brings any salad to a whole new level.
