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.

Oatmeal chocolat chip cookies

I’m back… It’s been a year now that we’re back in France. And between us, it has been a tough one but now we are well settled down.

Everyday I miss my friends and others things like some particular food, stores open 24/7, hearing English¬†and Target ūüėČ

So today on this sunny day, Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas at the corner, I craved oatmeal cookies…

Vanilla rice pudding

As far as I remenber I always ate rice pudding. For me it’s a comfort food. That’s reminds me of my grand mother who used to make it with raw milk from the farm next door, when we were in Brittany for vacation.
Today of course it’s not possible so to find back that creamy texture I put some heavy cream and it’s a delish.

Hope you enjoy
