Creamed codfish

Creamed codfish

When I saw this creamed codfish, I immediately remembered when my sister prepared it for us. She was here at home on vacation and having fun in the kitchen, and one evening she prepared brandade, the portuguese name of this dish. Delicious. I found this […]

This salmon with citrus sauce is an alternative to prepare this fish that we eat very often (such as this salmon I’ve been cooking very often). When I saw this recipe on Bon Apetit, I was immediately attracted by the citrus sauce and I decided […]

The Ikea cookies

The Ikea cookies

I decided to prepare these Ikea cookies not because Ikea’s ones, but because such an ensemble of tasty ingredients could only lead to a delicacy. It is curious how much almond I’ve been eating lately. They’re healthy, fortunately! I have never been fond of it, but […]

Mushroom soup with garlicky bread

Mushroom soup with garlicky bread

This mushroom soup is delicious. My husband keeps asking me to prepare it again. It is a cream that seems to gather all mushrooms perfum and taste to free it all inside your mouth. Really tasty. I found this mushroom soup recipe on Half Baked Harvest […]

As soon as I saw this brittle with pistachio recipe I ran to the kitchen to prepare it. I love beautiful food and, especially, when it is simple and quick to prepare. Pistachio is a delicacy by itself, and served as a brittle is just… […]

These chocolate witch brooms  are treats that go well for children but also for adults. They’re healthy (I used only dark chocolate to prepare the brooms) and can be a silly cute thing to have fun amongst friends. Together with the banana boos, these witch […]
