So, I am sitting in bed with a horrible cold. I cannot really taste anything but that is not stopping me from craving something sweet. Actually I would love some cold ice-cream. My throat would love some cold ice cream. One of these desserts would also do the trick. I love the little dessert with the raspberries. It is an amaryllis-think macaron wafer with cream and fresh raspberries. I always have one of those with a nice cup of tea when I am in Paris.
However the one next to it with all the fruit is calling out my name. I love chocolate but I really enjoy fruity cakes. Anything with the taste of fruit is a favourite of mine.
Given it is February and love is in the air maybe you would like a strawberry macaron.
What about a big kiss from a chocolate frog?
I am always up for an eclair. Decisions Decisions. This is why I love going on vacation to Paris. The decisions I have to make there are always so delicious. Which dessert would you choose?
Cooking is one of my passions in life. Enjoying good food, pastries, chocolate and everything the French have to savor is my other. This should come as a surprise given my father chose my name after reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I am a voracious reader and collector of cookbooks. Little did I know that all my grade school French lessons would come in handy one day.
