Fennel Tart

I don’t know if you are like me, but I love any and all kinds of vegetables! Their color, texture and shape, and fragrance; some only aromatic when cooked, are beautiful! Fennel is so perfumed and particularly strong with an Anise flavor that I love. Excellent just with a vinaigrette or braized. But, I opted…

Apple and Lemon Cake

I often like to prepare simple and classic recipes, and this is cake is both (and tasty 😀 ). I remembered my grandmother used to make this cake in her green cookware “Le Creuset” and the texture was perfect and moist. This cake is perfect for any occasions and ready to be served for the…

Beignets aux Amandes

Last week, I missed Fiesta Friday. I was so busy, I received my lovely niece for a few days. I like receiving my relatives because I love rediscovering my Dubaï! February is usually the Carnaval Month in a lot of places in the world, and so, for this festive month (and for Fiesta Friday #55) I…
