Banana & Chocolate crumble

The crumble is a dessert ultra simple and ultra fast to make. It is the dessert which combines fondant, crisp and which is greedy whatever we can put inside. It is the dessert I love above all else. I never eat it to the restaurant, no, I eat the crumble of my mom and mine.

When I am at home, I love to make crumbles duo with one side with apples and the other with banana and chocolate, all, in one dish. No need to choose like that !! Here, I confined myself to the chocolate banana crumble. As much to say that it is 100% of greed.

And you, what crumble do you prefer?

This is not the first time I propose crumble here but surprisingly, I proposed only a sweet crumble, one with rhubarb and two salty crumbles, with salmon and vegetables of summer. I plead guilty, I love it so much that I eat crumbles in all sauces !! Continue reading

Scone with pistachio and orange blossom

In general, I always have an anecdote to tell with my recipe, but there, no, nothing, NADA !! You will tell me, it is not very a big deal if I have no anecdote to tell. Yes it is true ! I am not even sure that my small introductions are always read (even if I try to make it short because I am the first discouraged when the text is too long).

Finally, in this case, I wanted to make scones. I put a few weeks before finding the flavor that I wanted and as soon as I found, as soon as I put myself to the stoves. It’s that simple !

And so pistachio and orange blossom, these are sweet flavors that I really appreciate. I hope you will like as much as I do. Continue reading

Panna cotta with goat cheese and beetroot

You know me, I prefer sweet than salty, so in the restaurant, when I have to choose starter-dish or dish-dessert, the question does not arise at all !! It has played a tricks on me not long ago. During a lunch in the restaurant, I saw this famous panna cotta with goat cheese and beetroot on the menu and she tapped me in the eye! Laughing, I said to my friend: “no, it doesn’t matter, I just have to do it myself!”. And as soon as said, as soon as done 🙂

And even though I would never know if my panna cotta matches the restaurant’s, I’m not disappointed at all. This salty panna cotta is a real treat! It is quite sweet, the fresh goat is very present in the mouth at first when the beet comes after. The two are perfectly combined and no doubt I will do it again!

PS: we agree, I managed to make a trompe l’oeil? Could have been a panna cotta with red fruits? Continue reading

Beat Cake

Many of you should not know what a beaten cake is, so I’ll start by telling you that it’s a specialty from Picardy. And, in summary, it is a kind of brioche very rich in butter and eggs. For me, it’s obviously much more than that! This is the finishing touch to many family meals. Final touch that we all willingly take even if we are no longer hungry at this stage.

This beaten cake is a huge wink to my family, and I am very happy to be able to propose it today. I am very fortunate to have managed to recover the adequate mold (no more manufactured this day) thanks to my godmother.

Regarding the preparation, it was a different story. As Mercotte (a French cook blogger in France) very well said, not easy to find itself there! No, because the recipes follow one another but are not alike. The recipe here is the second I made, the first having ended in failure. Finally the main thing is that I finally succeeded!

Frittata with chorizo and tomato in an appetizers way

Nothing more in the fridge than eggs … well you can be certain that I will order my meal elsewhere or worse eat cereal for dinner instead of making me an omelette with these eggs. I am not an egg fan at the base, but the omelette is by far the preparation that I like the least. So why propose a frittata? Strangely, this preparation (baked in the oven for my part) makes me forget a little the slobbery omelette that discourages me so much. It’s really psychological because basically it’s a bit the same.

I had already wanted to propose a frittata for the blog with bacon and peas a few months ago, but I had cooked it in an oven that I know badly and Bang!, it had slightly burnt on top. Impossible to take a picture of it, the kind of thing which makes fume !! And then a few weeks ago, I thought of this version with chorizo and I said to myself, with this, it is certain, it will taste nice and it will please me! So I started again in the preparation of a frittata.

And to have taste, I assure you that it has. Between the chorizo extra strong for which I opted, chives and tomato dried, we are served! For a little aperitif, it’s perfect. But if you want, you can not cut it out and serve it as a dish. Continue reading
