Hi there!

I am here!  I am back!  So sorry for this little unannounced blog-vacations, it was not how I planned it.
In the last 2 weeks, I had so much going on.  Mainly, some of my French family visiting here for 2 weeks.  I took a few days off and I really thought that among other things and daily life, I would keep the blog alive.  Well, well, well, I was fooling myself!

French clichés and French crêpes!

By on April 7, 2014

How about a little list?

1 – I do have a French accent and it is cute!  I am proud of it!
2 – I love stinky cheese, specially an old runny camembert.
3 – I like to complain, it is just part of my day, I know it is bad, I am working on it though!

Alright, I will stop here actually, because I know that French people have some unflattering clichés too…  Strikes, no shaving (!!), smelling bad (now come on, who spread those things?)  Ahah, this is quite funny!

I do love the clichés that makes me a Chef because I am French, oh la la!  I definitely have a je-ne-sais-quoi!  So for now, I will share my French crêpes recipe with you:

Appetizer | Finger food | Meat and fish

Don’t judge a book by its cover because those Croque-Monsieurs are delicious!

There are some food that, even if there are tasty, it is hard to make them look appetizing…   The Croque-Monsieur that follow is not the most appealing one.  Plus, my picture is not recent, I would have done it differently maybe but still… not that good looking.  I am working on it!  Certain meals or dessert are sometimes difficult to take a picture of but it is my role to make you want to try them.  One that one, I hope you will give those Croque-Monsieur a try, sooo worth it!

Now that you know how to do a bechamel, it is going to be an easy and quick recipe!  And, since it is Superbowl season and finger are trendy, you HAVE to give it a chance.
