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.

Since winter has dragged on a bit here in Paris, soup is still a dinner option. Hopefully not for too much longer, though. Let’s consider this a farewell to all the chills of winter… fingers crossed!
I discovered the recipe to this soup on Oh la la livia. It was perfect for the cold cold evening and warmed my entire body up.
It was also an excuse to whip out my favorite bowls.
Give it a whirl if you dare.
On Olivia’s birthday a few weeks back, I went over to her precious apartment and she made some delicious egg-free almond meal blueberry cupcakes (a mouth full, right?). That woman is a whizz in the kitchen. As it was her special day, I should have been the one cooking for her! Ha!
These pancakes were so delicious and didn’t feel heavy in the tummy at all. With some pears on the side and a dab of Canadian maple syrup it was the perfect healthy breakfast.
Of course with a chai tea & a good chat? I’m not sure what could be better.
You can get her recipe for these pancakes here.
Happy Monday, think of bright colors and delicious eats to get you through the day.

This is a treat I have grown to really appreciate. Luckily the man I live with makes a damn good one.
Cette petite goûtée j’ai appris à vraiment apprécier. Heureusement que l’homme avec lequel j’habite peut en faire un qui est sacrément bon.

2 cl glass cane sugar syrup (half of the amount of whiskey)
