Take some pink, add a Saturday....

{image - Kasha Harmer}

.....and what do you get? Pink Saturday, of course!

As many of you know, Beverly has given us the task of introducing a pink saturday "neighbour".

This week I would like to introduce Caren and Ashley from Kdottie designs.

Their story begins with the fairy doors - after teaching and owning a dance studio with her husband for the past 30 years (and counting), Caren has sadly noticed the decline of children's imaginations. To combat this growing problem, she designed and created a series of fairy doors which are used daily in her dance classes.

Sharing her mom's creativity, Ashley has designed her own line of home and fashionable accessories for k dotties while studying dance and fashion in New York City.

Currently, both Caren and Ashley are joining forces (mostly long distance) to create a children's boutique of toys, clothing, and other fun items.

Note should you need one, I have a fabulous pink fairy clock in my Fabulously French showroom which would make a gift for a wee fairy lover.

Wishing you all a very happy Pink Saturday, and remember to visit Beverly's blog for more fabulous pink blogs.

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…

a good idea..

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…
