Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo . I really discovered this Mexican holiday through US food blogs. I decided to bake something even though we doesn’t celebrate that day at all in France.
French people and even chefs start cooking and baking for Thanksgiving even though there is no point in France so why not celebrate Cinco de Mayo.
I really wanted to try those Mexican wedding cookies. I know that
Tomorrow it ‘s Mardi Gras !! To be honest I don’t know much about Carnival, I remember that we used to put costumes on when I was a little girl ( our costumes were my mom’s biggest nightmare) and that we used to eat lots of stuff like crêpes or beignets at school …
Well you guessed it , that was my favorite part !!! My first intention was to bake doughnuts, or beignets or anything fried
Macarons : Friends or Enemies ? I guess both : They should be named Nemesis. I like Macarons but I have to say that they are not my favorite treat, I don’t remember my first macarons at all. I wanted to give them a try for the challenge. I tried twice last year and each time they came out great, so when I had this pumpkin macarons idea, I thought that it will be fine. Well it turned out that
Do you often shop online ? I have to say that I do. Mainly books on Amazon, bakeware and cake decorating stuff. For clothes I’d rather go shop in person because I always have to change clothes that I order online, they never fit or I don’t like them, they often don’t really look like the pictures so I prefer to try them on.
The thing that I like about ordering online is that you can think
So what did you do for Halloween ? I did Nothing. Like really Nothing, I stayed home by myself. Sounds depressing right ? Just a bit. Halloween is not really big in France. I remember when they tried to « introduce » Halloween in France 15 years ago when I was a teenager.
I remember buying some black and orange lipstick with my friends after school and going to Halloween parties for a few
I’m sick. I have a laryngitis. I cough a lot. I have lots of meds to take. I lost my voice completely yesterday and she seems to be ok to come back but really slowly. I’ve been sick all week end and I’d like to remember you that I work on week ends. Had a lot of fiever on Saturday but I was ok to work Sunday and Monday. I hate being sick but just like everybody I guess.
Then the funny thing
I went to see the Avengers movie on Thursday. It was Great. So I watched The Captain America movie on Friday because I missed it when it came out. Now I need to catch up and watch the Thor movie. I need to make a revelation. I was a total Geek when I was a teenager. I was into mangas, comic books, video games, role playing games and medieval / fantasy books.
My brother and I used to spend all
Have you guys ever experienced Insomnia ? I hope not. I used to be a night owl when I was a teenager and even years after that. I used to love it. It was a choice. I was either reading or spending time on my computer, listening to some great music. Or I liked to listen to the silence. I really liked that. Those moments. So quiet. My family was asleep. I don’t know why but it was some
Happy Easter !
Instead of doing an Easter Post, I decided to do a post-Easter post. Because I’m sure you will have plenty of chocolate leftovers to use. I wanted to try those thumbprint cookies for a while now so that was the perfect occasion ! I love the Kinder Schoko- Bons eggs … But if you don’t have any where you live I think you can easily substitute Cadbury Cream eggs or any chocolate
