Healthy vegan chocolate tartelettes

By on August 21, 2017

Do you have a sweet tooth and need your sugar fix after lunch? I got you covered! I have some sweetness and chocolate for you. Also, if you are vegetarian, vegan, it’s a keeper. Otherwise, it’s a keeper anyway! I know, I rock.
I’m talking tartelettes tasting like heaven and not staying on your hips!



It’s small, grab one!

In fact, this tartelettes will satisfy your craving and not give you bad conscience. Come on, admit it, don’t you feel bad after eating a bad chocolate bar just because? You can tell me, it’s me! Because, I do. After lunch, I generally look for that little something sweet that will mark the end of the meal. A nice expresso don’t always work, sometimes it calls for nice piece of chocolate to go with it.

Since we only live once and I own my curves, I indulge! However, I will try to make smart choices and Ta-da, now you have my healthy vegan chocolate tartelettes.

I used the lids of my mason jars as mold and it makes the perfect size for a treat! I got this idea from Dessert for 2, Christina is always so creative.

There is no sugar added and yet it is sweet. The figs and raisins are doing all the job. The combination of the nutty taste of the walnut and the chocolate will make ask for more!

chocolate pot de creme

Chocolate Pot de crème. French dessert? French name? This sounds fancy! Don’t you feel that it will impress a crowd? If anything, it will please a crowd and that’s actually the most important. I truly think you can go wrong with chocolate, any season, any time of the day, any gender, any age, it’s a magic word!

Cho-co-lat.

Ouh lala! Also, a pot de crème is the cousin of the crème brûlée and the brother of la crème aux oeufs.

Not only it’s the decadent dessert you’ll want to do again soon as you bring the first spoon to your mouth but also because it’s so simple you’ll want to make a ‘pot de crème’ to your loved ones and use your sexy French accent.

8 things to do to feel like it’s summer in Provence

By on September 7, 2015

Last day before back to school? Let’s talk about vacations…. I am all emotional that my baby is going to SK so let’s change the conversation, right?

As the summer is wrapping up, I want to enjoy the last bit of sun on my skin, a few more outdoor meals but most of all, keep that warmth in my heart that I brought back from France.

We went to the South, in Provence, for 2 weeks and it was hot, relaxing and full of love. The children enjoyed every little bit of their trip. French vacations for the win!
Summer in Provence 1 – Eat like every day is your last day: To a certain extend… Stay healthy and moderate. BUT do not think that certain things are to be eaten or drunk on special occasion. TODAY is special! We were in France with our family, it was amazing. Needless to say that (cough) our pants shrank under the sun!  But we ENJOYED!

2 – Eat local, fresh and seasonal: Fresh strawberries from the garden for breakfast? YES! Biting in a juicy tomato in the garden? YES! It is tastier and kids snaked on beautiful crops. Enough said.

3 –  Have an apéritif: See #1, today is special, have a nice glass of wine with your loved one, a fresh beer. Stay safe, don’t drive. Cheering to awesome vacations! Santé! Special recommendation: Pineau des Charentes, Pastis. Ma favs.
