Valentine’s Day Cookies

My Valen­tine’s Day Cook­ies are sim­i­lar to the Hal­loween Sablés Cook­ies I loved mak­ing for Hal­loween. The idea is the same, but, since these are Valen­tine’s day cook­ies, I am using heart-shaped cook­ie cut­ters and straw­ber­ry pre­serve for the red col­or. I also decid­ed to use a dif­fer­ent recipe for the dough, that does not […]

Croque-Monsieur Appetizer

I love this salmon avo­ca­do appe­tiz­er. Only takes about 5 min­utes of very easy prepa­ra­tion. It is light, fresh, and looks pret­ty. It is also quite ver­sa­tile.

French Walnut Cake

Look­ing to bake a last minute cake, that isn’t your typ­i­cal choco­late cake or fruit cake? Try French wal­nut cake! The oth­er day, I decid­ed at the last minute to bake a cake for dessert, but we were out of bak­ing choco­late and fruit. Then I remem­bered we had a bag of wal­nuts, and I […]

Extremely Easy French Palmier Cookies (Elephant Ears)

Palmi­er Cook­ies are tra­di­tion­al French crispy cook­ies. Though these cook­ies are found all over the world, they orig­i­nat­ed in France. In the US, they are called “Ele­phant Ears,” while in France, they are called “Palmi­er,” which means palm tree. Do you think they resem­ble more palm trees or ele­phant ears? Maybe both? Either way, they are […]
