Would the person placing an order that had a problem yesterday..


Would the person that tried to place an order yesterday on fabulously french for the French monogrammed napkins, monogrammed table cloth and silk tea napkin, please contact me as the shipping would not calculate as the order was heavier than what was set up for France.

Merci beaucoup et bon dimanche a tous,


p.s. it is very cold here with snow being forecast for this week....cannot wait!


  1. Oh that lucky person who ordered those!!! Enjoy your snow Leeanne!! Hugs, Rachel ;)

  2. Yes I heard there is snow on the horizon en France!
    I would still love to be there - I would pack all my winter woollies, scarves, hats, boots and my 10yr old long black Marilyn Sainty coat (I only ever wear it in France now). I'm convinced Global warming has changed our climate!!
    Swelteringly beautiful summers day here.

  3. Wow it is cold here!! We had quite a bit of snow on Friday as well but sadly it all melted right away! Have a great Sunday!

  4. I got back just in time for the snow. It's cold but I love this time of year. Wouldn't trade it for the world! Really like the idea of French monogrammed napkins...

  5. Lovely sharp post. Never thought that it was this easy. Extolment to you!

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
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


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

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

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…
