Recipes that I love and want to share with you…

Nearly Guilt-Free Cocoa Brownie

My food philosophy is one of balance and variety.  I love rich, decadent foods and sweets, but I also adore healthy meals.  Salads, fresh fruits and vegetables are my mainstay and I cherish the way my body feels after drinking

Anytime Chicken with Aubergine and Tomatoes

I adore this recipe. It is ridiculously easy (great for the chef), child-friendly (works for families) and all but fail proof (terrific for guests).  It can be made ahead.  It is pretty.  It is healthy.  It can be spiced up

Lentil-Quinoa Stew

The rite of parental passage – better known as parent-teacher conferences – began for us last week.  Like parents all around the globe, we dutifully assumed position in our “little kid” chairs, anxious smiles on faces, uncomfortable angles in knees

Vive L’éclair

The éclair.  A finger-like choux pastry filled with pâtisserie cream and topped with a chocolate glaze.  Even bad ones are yummy.  And rightfully so.  It is tough to imagine what could go wrong with pastry + pâtisserie cream + chocolate.

Banana Date Cake

Do I call this a cake or a bread or a bread pudding?  I’m not sure…  I created the below recipe this week and want to share it, but I am not entirely sure what I should call it.  So…

Almond Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

This is another recipe that I found in my Tartine cookbook, but originally it is from Flo Braker’s The Simple Art of Perfect Baking. I planned on making this cake for years, but never seemed to get around to it.

Galette des Rois

I’ll confess to not knowing much (anything, is more like it) about Twelfth Night and Epiphany celebrations before we moved to France.  I knew nothing of the traditional galette des Rois – and I still struggle to say the word
