Gateau au yaourt with a twist

I love Gâteau au yaourt, It's the easiest and most delicious cake, perfect to make at the last minute with what is left in the fridge or in the pantry -and at home, there's always eggs, flour, oil, sugar, and... yogurt somewhere. The first cake you learn to make when you're French - I can definitely see Madame Turpin teaching us at school. It's so easy ! You usually make it straight with a "pot de yaourt", a store bought yogurt that is ...

Gluten free and dairy free cake!

My poor non French people, Sorry I've been away for so long. I was very busy trying to understand how Snapchat works and if life has a meaning without instagram (turns out, not bad at all! You should check it out!) Anyway, I made this cake today and brought it to the office I share with two beautiful and wonderful and very Los Angeles ladies, who of course have special diets (because, oui, it's LA, mon ami!). Well, as French and perfect ...

Start the year like a Queen! Make a King’s cake!

Galette des Rois is the first cake of the year in France. What's best than sharing a cake with your friends and relatives to start the new year? During the whole month of January, French people meet and share a galette together. This King's cake is named after the Three Wise Men who are said to have come to visit baby Jesus on the Twelth day after his birth. They brought fancy presents, and the French traditionally celebrate this fact by bringing ...

Bake basque and feel better! Gâteau basque

My poor non French people, Are you one of these strange persons who always fantasize about going back to their childhood, "back to the future" way? I thought I wasn't. I'm actually living with someone who is part of this weird crowd, obsessed by buying toys you had when you were a kid, or the smell of a perfume that's "exactly as this particular glue I used at kindergarten". I don't consider myself nostalgic of the past, I will never say ...

Hey Gal! Be a princess! Make a galette!

My poor non-French people, Forget about juicing for a sec... Why start the year punishing yourself, when you can be French and perfect and decide that each moment must be enjoyed to the last bite ? After the holidays, the first thing my fellow countrymen think is... "Where are we buying the galette next week?". King's cake is the first culinary event of the year. It's set on the first Sunday of January, which leaves you one week to sip bouillon de poule et ...

Be fine in your finances! Make some Financiers!

My dear, poor, non-French people, No chichi between us : I won't put on airs, and tell you the truth just as it is... The sentence you will hear the most in any French conversation right now is not "qu'est ce qu'on mange" (what are we having for lunch) or "où est mon carré Hermes?" (where is my Hermes scarf)... Ok, it might be "qu'est ce qu'on mange", because yes, we French and perfect people are a little obsessed with food, and always will. But ...

Clap your hands for Clafoutis!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Here is a chance for you all to learn some of my beautiful native language. Want to say Summer in French? It’s very easy. Repeat after me. Cla-fou-tis. Ok, Clafoutis  does not exactly mean summer, (actually, in ancient French in means nailed!) but for most of my French and perfect friends, it's a synonym. Just hearing the word instantly takes me a few years ago, to the garden of my childhood home, back there in Loir-et-Cher. Summer is on, my brother ...

Go yogurt! Bake a French and perfect cake!

My dear, poor, non-French people, Forget about all the "life is like a box of chocolate" thing. This is absolutely nonsense for a French girl. You always know what you're gonna get with a box of chocolate! Du plaisir!  Pleasure! And maybe a little extra pounds... but pleasure mostly! So let me tell you how life works... La vie, c'est aussi simple qu'un pot de yaourt. Oui oui! Life is very easy. It's like a tub of yogurt. Ok, I'm not sure you'll find this French saying anywhere outside of this ...

Let them eat (pineapple) cake!

My dear, poor, non-French people, As a good, French and perfect girl, I went back home for Christmas this year. I wanted to see my family and friends, eat some real good French food of course, but this time I also thought I was on a mission: I had to crack the French and perfect women code for you guys... What makes us so special? I'm still amazed at the number of books and movies on the subject. So I spent a few days ...

Remembrance of recipes past… Pain d’épice

My dear, poor, non French people, Remember the good old time when you spent hours next to the mailbox (the real one, not you average hotmail-yahoo-gmail electronic version) waiting for a letter of your dear chéri? And then reading it again and again trying to figure out what he actually meant by "I like soccer and you too"? Where are all those letters now? I wonder how kids today will have a reminder of their first love letters... That's what I thought a few ...
