Healthy Milktart crepes

Milktart Crepes have become my ultimate favorite way to eat crepes. Even though Nutella coconut filled crepes right next to the Ifle tower is hard to beat. Crepes with a view can be anyone's favorite am I right? No matter what they taste like. Now you don"t have to go all the way to France to experience good enough crepes. I combined the much loved French dessert with a well-known favorite in South African. One thing that we have in common is that we love crepes too. I guess that I am finding more and more similarities to cure the "missing home" blues.

Happy first year

Happy first year mom and baby. First time mom, surviving the first year abroad is not only my personal experiences but the voices of so many other mothers that have daring taken on the task of having kids far away from home. So yes, we all are superwomen, whether you are close to family or not. The exception here is that we have to do without that teeny bit of help when it is needed the most. Exhale mom. You're gonna be fine.

Vegan Coconut Milktart

Vegan coconut Milktart is the real deal, I assure you. Can you make this beloved dessert healthy? Yes indeed. It's a traditional dessert that resembles something close to a custard flan. In my house, I try to healthify a few recipes, even though I do love the old favorites just the way they are. I love coconut milk and have a few cans lined in my cupboard to whip up something when the time calls for it.

Starting your life France

Starting your life in France is just my summary of our four-year journey so far. If you're one of the lucky ones moving to France then this post is for you. The four-year mark of us moving here will be rolling around November and I certainly can't believe how fast it has gone and how much I have learned and am still learning. Come and read more about how to survive and actually live well in France as a foreigner.

Sommerskos op die tafel met Marita van der Vyver

Om die tafel met Marita van der Vyver, is 'n droom onderhoud wat 'n werklikheid geword het vir my. Nie net is sy 'n ikoniese skrywer nie, maar sommer 'n bobaas kook ook. Somerkos in Provence is sowaar net 'n voorsmakie van die "creme de la creme" lewe van Marita van der Vyver in Frankryk. Ek het behoorlik gesmul toe ek deur haar Somerkos in Provence kosboek blaai en ek kon nie wag om elke resep te probeer nie.
