The charlottes are as fun to make as to eat! I used a muffin tin in the absence of anything fancier.


It was a cold as day so I made a hot apple drink with star anise, cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, black pepper nutmeg and ginger.


Old family receipe - especially good for hot summer days. Hope you like it :)


Ceci n'est pas un œuf! My french is very bad, but: This is not an egg. It quite looks like a fried egg, when in fact it is coconut pudding with peach (and pistachios)!


Until I moved to the Deep South, I always thought 'banana flavored pudding' when somebody said banana pudding. Now, sense the move, i have found true Banana Pudding! This is my take on the classic southern banana pudding. I hope you enjoy as much as my eyes do when I eat these with my eyes and my family when they actually eat these!
