 Saying it’s inspired by my French culture is not totally right nor fair… to my son!  My little superhero loves to watch Popeye and  asks me regularly to buy spinach at the grocery store. I know, I am a super lucky mom as not all the kids asks for spinach, broccoli and green beans at the store.

Spinach and quinoa stuffed portobello mushrooms

By on July 5, 2014

And we are talking quinoa and spinach in a creamy sauce!

Loaded with protein, a great vegetarian meal, yes meal because the mushrooms were that big.  If you are sharing one, it can be an appetizer.   It is topped with goat cheese and it is giving such a kick to the dish.

You will love the freshness and strength of the goat cheese is really the perfect addition and balance to the mushroom and its stuffing.

Spinach, onion and goat cheese tart

By on May 27, 2014

I have been meaning to post this recipe for 2 days already but to tell you the truth, I have been slacking at little… Well maybe a lot.  The pictures and the recipe are ready all I am missing is my article.

I actually have a very valid reasons!  A few actually.   The weather this weekend was gorgeous, so obviously we enjoyed it and spent some quality family time.  And the evenings…  Well, my husband and I have been a little obsessed with a show lately!  Which means we have watch 3 to 4 episodes a night.  Have you seen Suits?  Such a great show!  It is perfectly balanced with romance, drama and comedy.  We are totally hooked.

When I was expecting my daughter, we are crazy on an old show, finished for a long time: the Sopranos.  Every night, we were watching episodes until midnight or later and we were always regretting because If my water would break, we would be so exhausted.  Sure enough, one day at 11pm… It did!  We have been tired for 19 months since then.  Totally worth it though.
