Pistachio cream puff

I have to admit! I’m a bit gourmand….

I love baking. Since I was a little girl I was baking with my mum, always leaking the bowls… Then alone when I was feeling stressed. So for Christmas my mum offered me a great book on French baking and since then I’m baking about one pastry per week…. My girls are very happy about it! And I can say I’m lucky not have the tendency to gain weight easily.

So last week end I did some pistachio cream puff to pleased my husband who happens to love pistachio, even if he has more like a salty palet…

With a little drizzle of dark chocolat, trust me it is a delight!

Hope you enjoyed.

This picture brings me back like if I were in the medieval times, what looks like a monk is just a tourist passing by!

A day at the beach

After Easter in France Monday is a day off. The weather was beautiful so we packed sandwiches and off we went to the Pornichet. It’s only 45 minutes drive.

The girls had a lot of fun and it was a pleasure for us to see her having fun and laughed like crazy lunatics!
