A more 'healthy' treat?
Just a few month so late!!
No peaches, no sun, no warm weather!
No peaches, no sun, no warm weather!
By the way, peaches look orange inside...

TO BAKE: check this blog
Labels: to watch
Since i've received this book fron my oooh so sweet ' Martha Stewart on Louboutins' boss I have been cooking all my meals from this book!
Everything looks deeeeelicious!!
Even baked bread!!
Looked to easy and to delicious not to give it a try!
Think: Poached plums with Oatmeal
sourdough bread with goat yogurt and grilled tomatoes
Mushrooms on toast
French toast with greek yogurt warm blueberries and blackberries
You know what.... just go and shop it!!
Ever since Chantal from Step by Step ( Antwerp, Lombardenvest) showed us this book, I just can't stop thinking about it!
I was already sold at looking at the cover and that blue trimming around the pages!
ooooh can't stop thinking about how this book would look good in my interior!
but can stop thinking about how this book wouldn't make my interior look good...
And no thanks... Maybe I should distract my mind with that Woolrich hat!
I think Marc Grossman, without even knowing him, is starting to become one of my favorite persons!
With his Bob's Juice Bar in Paris ( read our Paris Lunch spot blogpost)
then Bob's Kitchen,his previous books, one all about bagels
( looooove a good bagel with cream cheese, jam, and an egg sunny side up - i know sound weird - tastes awesome!!), and one all about muffins,
I think he just wrote the best book ever about the best subject ever!
New York desserts!!
Carrot Cake, Cheese Cake, PanCake, Pecan Pie, Apple Pie, basically all the best things ending with - cake and -pie.
All American New York recipes for a wanna be New York girl.
Before the movie, read the book!
Don't panic, it's a tiny one with 213 pages...
How can they make a hour and a half movie out of such a small book you wonder?
Well I could fill a movie with shooting Johnny Depp from every angle!
Great read, great writer, will be a great movie!
TO SHOP and TO READ :
From Season to Season by Sophie Dahl
Living in Brussels by Muriel Verbist and Diane Hendrickx
Un gouter a New York by Marc Grossman

Let's get dirty!
I think not even all the recipes on Tastespotting are going to satisfy me...
The cooking possibilities with this kitchen are endless!!
You get a Thermomix, a warm drawing, a cooling drawer, some special mini basin to place your used cutlery and dirty mixer , a teppanyaki surface,... shall i go on?
All blended into one super kitchen block!
Brute wood, stainless steel, black laquer, leather handles...
Can I handle you?
Bon, and if you insist, when you come to install my new kitchen, you can deliver that chef at my home too.
TO BAKE, TO SHAKE ON, TO SHOP, TO COOK NON STOP:
( Sponsors anyone? I'll bake pancakes, cupcakes and burgers for a lifetime!)

Forget those gels and processed power bars when you can make these delicious homemade crap free healthy energy bars!
When my brother got exited over this recipe and asked me to make it, I was totally in!!
Any chance I get to make home made versions of junk food I'm in!!
(Remember the oreo's? Burgers?)
Especially when I can turn my brother to the dark side of healthy foods..
He also always get super exited when his online shopping boxes arrive and wants to show of his new Rapha cycling stuff.
At first I just looked and acted interested, ( being the nice person that i am...)
but I have to admit, those jackets are amazingly gorgeous and ingenious!
( not al all what I imagined when i think of cycling gear!)
You'll want it toooo!
( with or without a bike!
Remember that episode where Joey in Friends pretended to have a Porsche...
maybe I can pretend to have a bike to I can strut around in my Rapha gear)
TO SHOP: http://www.rapha.cc
Forget about getting a baguette at Poilane in the morning! Forget about Laduree in the afternoon....
Go here instead!
When I make my planning to go on a city trip to Paris, fitting in all my favorite places proves to be quite the challenge!
It's no so much about the shopping, but more about the breakfast'ing brunching lunching,...
3 meals a day just aren't enough!!
Alright.... One place, 3 breakfast/lunch/brunch options!!
Sunny and hot, jump on one of those chairs on the terras on the boulevard..
Is it getting colder or in the need of a cosy chair or the smell of books?
Snuggle in the Library..
Get an egg, a yoghurt,scone with marmelade and a tea ( served in LPP's favorite tea pots).
Is it afternoon already? There's cake!!
Get a big lunch at La Cantine, below is the basement... And when I say basement I doesn't do the place any justice! Really cool light chill lunchspot between all the cookware and household stuff
Or if you are in a rush to go to the next address on the list, grab a take away at the Merci Deli shop next to the big entrance
