Today I want to share a recipe of interesting french pie – Quiche Lorraine. This is a traditional french pastry. It preparing from the simplest and chip ingredients. I think this is one of those pies, in which you can fall in love or be disappointed. I fell in love with quiche lorraine and cook it sometimes. The main ingredient in this pie is stewed onions! It’s taste like stewed cabbage, but softer. You can add or no the cheese, as your like. But the main rule – always cut the onion very thin, because in this case the filling was perfectly soft and creamy. Anyway, try it and you will be surprised what a wonderful are onions in the baking!

It’s autumn outside, and by the way October is my favourite month! I love it because it’s very special for me. One year ago I got married to my best man in the world, Nick. And two years ago my beloved dog Chantal was born. Every year, October means a beginning of something special in my life. But let’s get back to the today’s subject! Read More
For me, spices are an important autumn attribute, same as rain boots for example, or a warm scarf, hot tea with honey, etc. I want to share this very autumn recipe of spicy plum jam with you. It smells so good, that a breakfast with this jam will be absolutely cozy and lovely, I promise! Read More
Summer is over, and it means that the season of pumpkins, apples, pears and grapes has begun. I love autumn very much, and I’m ready to speak about this love for a very long time. Autumn breakfasts are the most cozy and loved for me. Because you’re sitting in warmth, sipping your hot coffee with milk and watching people outdoor, who are rushing to work. But you feel good, you’re home …
As you already know, having crepes on Sundays is our family tradition. I love thin crepes for breakfast at least because you can make a lot of different stuffings that suit your mood. I mostly love salted stuffing, and already shared a recipe of one of my favourite options “Crepes with blue-cheese and mushrooms“. If you didn’t cook them yet, I strongly recommend to do that! But today I’d like to share a sweet crepes recipe, with chocolate and beer. To be honest I don’t like alcohol in pastry too much. In this case beer is almost not noticeable, but adds airiness to the dough and emphasises the taste of chocolate. I rarely repeat a same recipe, but i will surely cook these crepes again. Good morning and bon appetite! Read More
I do love family traditions, especially related to cooking. In our family, there is one. It’s Sunday pancakes (precisely crepes, because i prefer thin pancakes). I can just wait for the weekend to decide what kind of pancakes to cook. And I want to share one of my favourites recipes of crepes. Today’s crepes are stuffed with chestnut mushrooms and blue cheese. They taste so delicate and smells amazingly thanks to blue-cheese.
I advise you to make the batter at the evening before, and in the morning only to bake crepes and put the filling, so you can sleep a little longer)
Tart Tatin is upside-down cake with caramelised apples. I don’t like apples in the pastry and this tatin with beets caught my attention. I never used them in baking, but now I fell in love with this tart. Sweet beets with caramel flavour on a gentle crust. I advice you to serve with sour cream or yogurt, they suit perfectly.To be honest, this is my first Tart Tatin and I can confidently say that it is quite simple to prepare, if done carefully. It can be a great breakfast or appetizer. You will not stay indifferent!
