This post is dedicated to those, that were effected by the tragic events, that took place on the 11th September 2001.

“Peace is not something you wish for;

It's something you make,

Something you do,

Something you are,

And something you give away.”


Robert Fulghum

Wishing you all a peaceful Pink Saturday,

  9. I will never forget September 11th, having been caught in its tragedy,watching the towers crumble, people jumping, women fainting, lived though its aftermath, lost friends, seeing my children's best friend life change for ever as they could never say goodby to their dad, seeing real heros at work. I will never forget...and hope the free world will never forget. Thank you for your remembrance.

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

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

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

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


1/2 cup honey

4 egg yolks
2 cups milk

1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

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

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

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…
