Mousse… Toujours!

Bonjour my friends, There we are, a few days after Christmas. I love the holidays, spending time with family, eating good food, and opening presents (yes, I did get some new toys for my kitchen this year!)

Bonjour my friends, It looks like we survived the first round of holiday feast! I love the holiday season, especially in the States since the Christmas spirit starts with Thanksgiving.

Bonjour my friends, I hope some of you have a sweet tooth because this week’s recipe is a classic “mini cake” in France: The Madeleine. Kids (as well as adults) love them.
