Breakfast

  • Gluten-Free Apple Crisp

    by Audrey

    This Gluten-Free Apple Crisp is proof that healthier desserts don’t have to be boring. Made of melty apples under a crisp gluten-free topping of ground almond, oats and pecans, this rustic dessert is pure comfort. I love how it’s a snap to prepare, it doesn’t have to look perfect and it’s a delicious crowd pleaser.

  • Winter Fruit Salad

    by Audrey

    After a festive or comforting meal, a fruit salad is always a welcome ending on a lighter and more refreshing note – even in the Winter! This Winter Fruit Salad plays with in-season fruits: pears, apples, clementines, kiwis and pomegranate seeds. This is a colorful, vitamin-packed mix of sweet flavors and crisp textures, that looks as beautiful as it tastes.

  • Known in French as “croquants”, these little twice-baked cookies may remind you of the Italian biscotti, but I promise they are French through and through. They are very popular in the South of France, and especially in Provence, where almonds grow abundantly. Just like biscotti, they are quick and easy to assemble, cut cross-ways and twice baked for an incomparable crispness. And they are very hard to stop at one!

  • Classic French Butter Brioche (Brioche Pur Beurre)

    by Audrey

    Nothing screams a French breakfast like a classic Brioche on the table. But not just any brioche… If you ask me, it has to be a Classic French Butter Brioche – known in French as “Brioche pur Beurre”. This French bakery staple is a soft bread that is light, pillowy and enriched with lots of butter to create a taste and texture that is uniquely rich. Unlike other French brioches that can include milk or cream to create an unctuous crumb, this brioche – as its name suggests – is…

  • Strawberry Banana Jam

    by Audrey

    Strawberry jam is a classic, especially in the early Summer months. But have you ever tried a Strawberry Banana jam? The addition of banana brings warmth and richness to the bright strawberries, and creates a wonderfully smooth texture. This is a quick, easy and delicious homemade jam, making the most of a childhood favorite flavor combo – strawberry and banana – which is sure to please the whole family!   

  • Overnight No-knead Bread

    by Audrey

    If you’re a first-time bread-baker, this recipe is for you. This Overnight No-Knead Bread is a basic loaf that doesn’t require kneading nor does it include a sourdough starter. The yeast-base dough is simply stirred together and rests overnight on your counter top to slowly ferment, rise and develop flavors. Baked the next day in a sizzling skillet, the bread grows into a crusty bakery-style loaf with a flavorful airy crumb. Trust me, it will not disappoint!

  • Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

    by Audrey

    A sweet tangy filling bubbling underneath a buttery oat crumble… This Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp has to be one of my favorite Spring desserts. It just has it all: it’s a snap to prepare, it doesn’t have to look perfect and it’s a delicious crowd pleaser. It’s best enjoyed with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, or just on its own.

  • Raspberry Jam Swiss Roll

    by Audrey

    We’re back in the kitchen today with a childhood classic – the Raspberry Jam Swiss Roll! Known in French as “Roulé à la Framboise”, this nostalgic treat certainly brings a lot of people back to their childhood. Personally, it reminds me of being a kid in France and enjoying countless swirly slices if it during the “goûter” (after-school snack time). This soft and spongy Génoise cake, covered with sticky sweet raspberry jam and rolled into a pretty swirl is eye-catching, absolutely delicious – and good news, far easier to make than…

  • Lemon Poppy Seed French Yogurt Loaf

    by Audrey

    I bid a final farewell to citrus season in the form of this simple Lemon Poppy Seed French Yogurt Loaf, drenched in a honey lemon syrup. It tastes deliciously moist, fluffy and zesty. And like any other French yogurt cake, it is a foolproof and ridiculously simple recipe to make.   If you’ve been following this blog for a bit, you know of my love for French yogurt cakes. Last winter, I had shared a recipe for a classic Orange Yogurt Cake (still to this day, one of the most…

  • Putting a Breton twist on Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies! Today’s recipe revisits the American classic recipe of Chocolate Chip cookies, with the use of buckwheat flour and sea salt – two staple ingredients from my home region Brittany. Buckwheat flour gives earthy and nutty flavors to these chewy cookies, boosted with sea salt that is used both inside the dough and sprinkled over top. If you think chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better – just wait, and try!
