  • What a Party!

    The party is over bu man did we have fun! There is a ton of food leftover. We had a lot of finger foods, the 2 grills were going full blast too. Beside the cake, I added a pan of fudgy brownies and some chocolate dipped strawberries. Seems like everybody had fun. It is our […]

  • At Home…Catering…

    for our home… Explanation: we are having a big party on sunday combining a housewarming party and a birthday. Our long time friends know champagne will flow for the hubby and our new friends will toast to the new house. We open our doors at 3pm, until… We have invited about 30 -40 people total. […]

  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cake

    Here it is: cut, shared, eaten, almost gone. Layers of the lightest banana rum cake, peanut butter filling and dark chocolate ganache. every recipe from Marcel Desaulnier’s book has been a delightful journey into chocolate bliss. Textures, flavors, combinations. Some recipe may sound heavy, like this one, and I was rather curious regarding the result, […]

  • Sugar Blurr

    Is it the cake that makes the book or the book that makes the cake? I got inspired to make Marcel Desaulnier’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cake yesterday, and when I went to take a picture, my blood sugar content was probably so high that the paper and live items kind of melted together!

  • Weekend Dog Blogging

    Tippy does not look convinced that we can get this whole new computers set up done right! I already gave up and wait on the Husband to get it. I took refuge in the kitchen to take care of some ripe bananas (again!) Head over to Sweetnicks later on today for the latest Weekend Dog […]

  • This and That

    Sorry if I have not posted much lately but we are getting a whole new computer installation set up here and it is taking me a while to get acclimated to it. Needless to say that the current heat wave has not been conducive to baking and cooking either. But I did come up with […]

  • Good Morning Sunshine!

  • Always Room for Dessert

    We were invited to T & D yesterday afternoon for a great Barbeque and relaxing time. They are both fine cooks, gourmets and gourmands. He is the master at the grill and she always has a lovely spread of appetizers and sides. As you may guess, I was in charge of dessert, one thing I […]

  • Save the Bananas!

    My husband knows how much I hate to throw away food. I am a big believer of recycling foods, whether savory or sweet. They become omelettes, crepes, quiches, bread, tartes, etc… you name it. There I was staring at 3 bananas going darker and darker, and yet I did not feel like making another banana […]

  • Losers’ Cake

    We lost…I need comfort food…I need limes or lemons, they are my comfort foods. And don’t get me started about Zidane. I am so mad at him right now, he let down his team mates, his country and his career because he thought with his “ego” (we’ll use this word today) rather than his head. […]
