I enjoyed making this dessert with my daughter :) There are a lot of reasons to make this : you love chocolate, you have no time, you have a big family. This is also a good one to do with the kids. This Chocolate Mousse is easy to prepare, you can make it in advance.

J'adore le Chocolat! Especially Intense Dark Chocolate Bar with 72% cacao! Dark Chocolate has a number of Healthy Benefits, it's full of Antioxidants, good for your heart, good for your brain, it's high in Vitamins and Minerals (Copper, Potassium, Iron, Magnesium).  My daughter loves chocolate too, much more than me! Sunday morning, we decided to make Brownies.  This easy recipe is inspired from "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman.

Homemade Applesauce

Why I never made homemade applesauce? I do not know! Yesterday I made Apple Compote. It smelt so good in my kitchen! It's just delicious, just sweet with the little bits of apple! It's a good way to eat apples! I used a mix of Honey Crisp and Pink Lady. Apple sauce is a good dessert, and perfect for a breakfast too. It is easy to make and not expensive! I love easy recipes when I have no time to cook! Of course, I have to make this recipe again. It's now ma recette favorite de compote de pommes... [Lire la suite]

Quatre-Quarts / French Pound Cake

Quatre-Quarts is a French cake that I love so much. Quatre-quarts means four quaters, because you need four ingredients for the dough and these 4 ingredients - eggs, flour, sugar and butter - are supposed to have the same weight. The French Pound cake is so easy to prepare. You can add dried fruits (raisins, cranberries...), orange zest or rum which changes the flavor of the cake. This buttery French Pound Cake is so good with a glass of milk or a cup of tea. It's a great idea to make for a tea party... [Lire la suite]

Sablés are delicate butter biscuits, crunchy and crumbly. The French word sable means "sand", which refers to the sandy texture. When I eat a sablé , I cannot resist to eat another one, and another one .....   I asked my kids, "do you want to eat one before I finish them all", Ah Ah Ah!  I loved French sablés. I remember eating the Galette de Pont-Aven when I lived in Brittany. It was incredibly good! Today my sabés are a Parisian style. It's the perfect biscuit to bake and eat... [Lire la suite]
