  1. What a lovely blog you have. I love all things French. Those soaps are so real! I couldn't be able to resist taking a bite off while tub soaking!

    Have a happy Sunday!

  2. I would never, in a million years realised they were soaps. How original, far too pretty to use!

  3. I love these! I saw them on other blog and when I went to get some, poof, they were all gone!!


  4. How cute those are. I was licking my lips before I read your words, they could really fool someone!

  5. How cute to have balanced in a pretty teacup by the sink or tub! Trish

  6. I thought I was at Luadree (sp)...I couldn't get in there while I was in Paris the line was so long the Hubs wouldn't wait, so I just had to dream about how good they must have tasted...I better order some! Thank you

  7. I know I would like them better than the real deal 'cause I've only tried them once at our lil paris cafe called Le Petit Paris and I wasn't impressed. Especially for the price! But they sure are pretty lil things.

  8. Those are adorable! I can just imagine how good they smell. The colors are so sweet.

    xx, Michelle

  19. They look so yummy, they must smell DIVINE!

  20. These would put an interesting slant on Grandma's threats to wash one's mouth out with soap when the naughty words popped out. Not me of course, I didn't even know any naughty words until I was about 15.

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 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.....

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…
