Brioche breakfast loaf

Brioche breakfast loaf is my new favorite way of eating bread in general. I am not much of a bread eater, but when it's super good, like this loaf. I can't say no! I love Brioche and it's a favorite of the French as well. There are so many recipes on how to use this dough. I made this loaf, and it took a bit of time, but it was no time till every crumb was devoured. My son loved it so much, and usually, he gets pretty over things when he eats it more than once! But no one in this household was sick of having a slice of heaven for pretty much every meal of the day until there was no more!

Easy sourdough bread

Easy sourdough bread has got me baking bread like there is no tomorrow. I've stocked up on these baked goodies and there are more than a few slices frozen for those much-needed carb days. Since I have been living in France and surrounded by Boulangeries, I was sure to be bitten by the bread baking bug. Now there are a few others that are high on my list. You'll just have to wait and see...

La vie en Famille

La vie en family just sums up our lives living abroad. We don't always get to share those really big moments with your family and therefore capturing the if you can is kind of important. What is life without family, love and little cuddles anyway? I took a few photos of the Beaty family expecting their second baby pretty soon.

Favorite festive treats

Favorite festive treats bring back so many memories of my Childhood Christmas. No our Noël experience in France has been somewhat different and sometimes challenging, but we remained optimistic as this season allows you to be. The smells of Speculoos spiced lattes, Nutella filled crepes and glue wine. When it comes to celebrating a French Christmas I have it pretty down to a T for this year to come. Come and read a bit more and get a few ideas for your Christmas table.

Hazelnut jam buttercream cake

HAZELnut jam buttercream cake is quite a mouthful to say and to enjoy because there is no taking small bites of this delicious cake. I made this beauty for a baby shower that was supposed to take place but instead the little princess made a surprise entry right on the day of the baby shower. Hazelnut cake was quite fitting for the lady in pink because she was given the pretty name Hazel. What are the chances right? But the perfect way to celebrate was with cake indeed!

Ten easy dinners

These ten dinner ideas have literally saved me a couple times. Dinner was on the table almost every night thankfully due to these easy recipes. Becoming a mother has been a full-time job and other duties like cooking took a backseat for a while, but once I got into the groove of being a mother and a wife it all just seemed a bit more effortless. Come and have a look at my summary of the last seven months of motherhood and of course some yum recipes to try for yourself!

À la mode French

À la mode French is the French lifestyle, fashion and decor all summed up. They know how to be "chic" and timeless. I visited a new store in town that just has the trick to brighten up your day. It's filled with orchids, succulents, decor items and even a pause cafe for those weary days. I brought them some Wild blackberry cupcakes. For the recipe and more stylish ideas, read a bit more here.
