But, to celebrate the special day, I decided to go with a more authentic recipe this time, that doesn’t care about healthiness and nutrition, just goodness!!! Also, I think my husband is getting tired of my try out at “healthy” baking…
The cake is a brioche type of dough, rolled with a sweet mixture of sugar cinnamon and nuts. It is baked and covered in icing and colored sugar, the colors you find EVERYWHERE in New Orleans at this time of the year: Purple (representing Justice), Green (representing Faith) and Gold (representing Power).
I have been thinking about what recipe to do to celebrate that special day, for a long time… But then I ran really short on time, and when I finally had a chance to sit down and decide on something, it was 9:30pm on Monday night! Thankfully, I found a very easy Panna Cotta recipe, made with 3 ingredients and requiring only 10 min of prep!! perfect!
For the French, the best part of Candlemas is obviously the crepes!!! In France we have different recipes whether you want to to enjoy them with a sweet or savory filling. Today we have done sweet crepes, and I’ll share with you my favorite recipe, it’s a rule of 3; infallible, easy to remember and delicious! We haven’t done savory crepes in a while, but you’ll find the recipe below
What best than a good heart warming Chili to serve at your Super Bowl party? It’s easy, yummy, can be prepared in advance and left in the pot all day long, and honestly, who doesn’t like Chili? Plus it’s gluten free, dairy free and you can easily make it vegetarian or vegan!
SUCCESS! I was really, really good for a healthy muffin! Oh, I forgot the disclaimer: “healthy doesn’t always mean low calories”, there, that’s done. After all, there is peanut butter, coco oil, dates, whole flour; it is a hearty muffin, but the ingredients, are good for you little inside! I passed the kids AND the coworkers (who have access to fresh amazing pastries from our 4 stars kitchen) test! HOORAY!
Of course there are tons, I mean loads of baking recipes with PB, but it is also very tasty in savory dishes! In my recent search for new veggie recipes, I came across this one from Carrie On Vegan. Of course I didn’t follow it to the T, but just not even thinking about what I was doing, I ended up with a very tasty veggie stir fry! Even hubb and the kids devoured it!! WIN!
Talking epiphany, I think I had one recently: I need to write again… yeah, it’s been 2 and half month… sorry! What happened? Well life did caught up to me and it was just getting too much. I guess I owe you, my fellow readers, an explanation…

Hibiscus Tea, or Agua de Jamaica Well, I am not enjoying those beautiful sunny days… I have been battling a nasty ear infection and therefore I’m stuck at home… Although, when leaving the pharmacy for my antibiotics prescription, I couldn’t resist visiting my favorite speciality food store; Galloway’s.
