Sometimes, I throw myself cooking challenges. Sometimes it works, other times not so much.
My last, half self-thrown challenge was to make wontons. Because buying frozen ones is too easy – why make things simple? I’m exaggerating. In reality, the filling is quite easy to do. It’s the “sealing” part I had a difficult time with.
It happens to the best of us. You’re roaming the aisles of the supermarket, wondering what you’ll make for dinner/Sunday lunch and you’re stumped. You want to do something different, for once, but inspiration is short-handed.
If you like cooking and/or you’re following cooking sites/blogs/pages, then you certainly have noticed the flood of shamrock, chocolate and rainbow-coloured foods, with the occasional pot of gold thrown in (leprechaun is optional). That is because March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day (or Lá Fhéile Pádraig), the celebration of Ireland’s patron saint.
First off, I hope that you had a wonderful Hanukah/Christmas/celebration day with your loved ones.
Now, after all that feast, don’t you feel like having something lighter? Yes, I knew you would! 😉 Lire la suite

Dear weather, It’s June 29th and I can see that, since yesterday, you are feeling poorly. Why else would it be raining so much when it’s supposed to be summer? So I decided to take care of you and made you some soup. I hope you like it. If not, that’s OK, I’ll have it. Lire la suite
Elodie is my friend. Seriously. All she has to do is ask and I bend over backwards for her, literally. In fact, she asks every week or so.
OK, so Elodie is my contortion teacher, so it’s kind of normal.
