Chocolate and strawberries heart shaped cake

I made this cake for the first time 2 years ago for a birthday. That was my first « nice looking » cake, with chocolate sauce and decoration. I remembered this cake as being hard to make because of the frosting, but decided to give it another try anyway, and it actually, wasn’t that bad. I guess … [Read more…]

Red peppers stuffed with smoked salmon

One of the first « posh » recipe (or at least at that time that was my level of « poshiness ») I have made since I moved to the UK. It is one of my favourite as it always has this « wow » effect on people, and it is so simple to make. Ingredients for 4 people: 2 large … [Read more…]

Chocolate chips cookies

A couple of days ago while I was shopping, I found those 3 cookie jars and it was love at first sight! My last attempt to bake cookies was years ago, and ended up in a complete catastrophe. But I needed an excuse to buy those boxes, they were so pretty! Excuse that I found … [Read more…]

Apple and banana compote

When I was a kid, my mum used to buy us apple compote from a famous brand, which all the kids (me included) loved! I am feeling a little bit nostalgic today, and thought to give it a go and make my own compote, let’s be crazy! 😛 I found some recipes online, but they … [Read more…]


I did that recipe for the first when we moved into our first flat in London. At that time, the size of my kitchen was less than 2 square meters. So cooking proper dishes was a big deal and required a lot of space management and organisation. A few years later we moved to another … [Read more…]

My first home made vegetable soup

This soup is literally the first one I have ever made from scratch! Ok, nothing extraordinary about that, after all it is just boiled water and vegetables, but when you come from dried soup mixes, to that, it is a big step! 😛 You will need either a blender or a neck blender to mix … [Read more…]

Olive cake

There are a thousand versions of this cake. However, for me “THE” one is my mum’s. She used to bake it for us after school. After high school I didn’t have it for years, until last year: I was visiting my parents and my mum had baked it for the occasion my cake! With the … [Read more…]

Spinach and smoked salmon flan

Il reste du saumon d’hier soir. On s’était fait une orgie de toast beurre/saumon fumé et on a eu les yeux plus gros que le ventre, comme d’habitude… J’aimerais trouver une recette originale, une association différente. J’ai déjà testé le saumon avec les poivrons et les carottes et je manque d’inspiration en ce moment. Je … [Read more…]

Spinach, shrimps, and blue cheese flans

I don’t understand people who don’t like spinach because me? I LOVE them, and that for as long as I can remember! Why not trying them with something a bit different… a few clicks to help stimulate my inspiration and here are my small spinach, shrimps and blue cheese flans Ingredients for 2 portions: 2 … [Read more…]

Little carrot and curry cakes

When I found that recipe of curry cakes, I couldn’t not try it ! So here we go, I have tried them and I quite enjoyed them. You can really taste the carrots, a bit less the curry, but just enough to spice up those delicious little cakes! You will need a food processor for this … [Read more…]
