Pancakes-by-Olivia-De-quelle-planete-es-tu-05If you’re looking to spice up your classic pancake mix a bit, this is exactly what you need. This is a little recipe that my lovely friend Olivia made for me one morning after a sleepover to go with our epic green smoothie.

Once your traditional pancake mix is prepared, mix in the following ingredients:

- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
- 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
- 1 teaspoon of powdered cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil

Then let the batter sit for an hour or so, and proceed to your classic pancake making extravaganza. If you don’t have, or aren’t in the mood for maple syrup, mix together some natural yogurt, frozen raspberries and honey for a flavorful topping.

CLEOPATRA’S BLING X DE QUELLE PLANETE ES-TU? COLLABORATION

Turkish Breakfast chez Frassy - De quelle planète es-tu? 1
One autumn Sunday, Olivia and Elif made Audrey and I a Turkish breakast.

I will admit, I had never had a Turkish breakfast before…. I was in for a surprise! The girls went all out and got the needed goods at a Turkish shop near Strasbourg Saint Denis. The eggs were made with cheese, tomatoes and turkish peppers and were just to die for. Along with our eggs we snacked on a platter of cheese, olives, nuts and more peppers. Lastly, as a side, Olivia made a spinach and pear salad with walnuts and a dash of pomegranate dressing.

It was so simple yet so delicious, and Audrey’s cat made for a lot of oohing and ahhing throughout the early afternoon. I’m not sure there is much better than a relaxing Sunday with a delicious meal amongst girls in a cozy apartment. That breakfast made me feel quite far from Paris.

If you haven’t tried Olivia’s carrot cake, you probably should. This bad boy is as delicious as can be.

One weekend on the countryside, she introduced me to her recipe.

It was one of those relaxing evenings outside the city, gloomy and cold. It was perfect for a little cooking adventure, and I’d always wanted to make carrot cake, especially knowing that hers was to die for. I love the feeling when the oven warms up the room. So, with a glass of red wine in hand, we prepared dessert for my in-laws.
