Fabulously British.....



Right Now, I am loving these new cushions that have just arrived at Fabulously French.

I have one in Apt Un, which I love combined with the colours of the couch ......



and have some displayed in my wee boutique.....


Love the colours, they photograph well as they are bright and pop out at you.....


Not sure if it is the same where you are, but there anything with the union jack on, is fashionable as as they say in France "tendance" and we are seeing it on chairs, cushions, wall hangings etc.

I am sure that France along with the rest of the world will be celebrating the queen's jubilee come June time.

This is it for me, it is sunny again here today so I am off to clean windows....

Bon mercredi a tous......Leeann x

  1. Oh yes, as we gear up for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations the Union Jack is everywhere here in the UK Leeann.

    Along the same lines, for Mother's Day I found a great gift for my MIL. A white bone china mug with a golden First Class stamp of the Queen's Head with the words "First Class Mum". Such a clever idea!

  2. Bonjour Leeann,

    Yes, there is always something striking about the Union Jack and I love the red, white and blue combination and the cushions are lovely.
    For sure, most of us will be celebrating the Queens Jubilee in June.

    Happy Thursday
    Hugs

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



Ingredients:


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

Method:

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…
