Guess what arrived......

{image from here} petit coterie order. They are gorgeous and look just as good if not better than the photos.

As I was unpacking the order a local lady arrived and demanded that I keep on the french Christmas stockings for her.

I have updated my fabulously french online shop for anyone that wants to order either a stocking for a fabulous burlap pillow case.

We have quite a few designs in stock including:

The most fabulous where angels keep watch cushion

I love the wreath detail on this one and it has my favourite word on it........

This one is adorable and I love it when it is put with the "bonne nuit" cushion

This is my favourite one, as I believe that love is magic.........

I will be back tomorrow with photos of my grand cork wreath and also the steps that I followed inorder to create it.....

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning

Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
