As time passes by, and the date of our departure gets closer, we’re living an inner dilemma: do we say good bye to the new tastes we’ve started to get used to by having them everyday, or do we start getting back into the old tastes and smells we’ve had since we were kids? One … Continue reading

When you’re at home, cold, just finished work and you’re bored with nothing to do, plus your husband has been working a lot lately and you want to please him with something, what do you do? Try to bake cake for the first time! 😛 Yes I know I burned them a bit, but what … Continue reading

Ever since I’ve been here I have discovered a new beautiful season: fall. I know I talked about this before, but I cannot help myself from being amazed by the beauty of the nature during this period. In Lebanon I knew that spring was nice, because it’s the season of the flowers, everything is green … Continue reading

Did you know that French cuisine is part of the country’s Cultural Heritage? Unesco added it in 2010, along with Mexican food and Mediterranean diet.

What did I tell you yesterday? If I will cook again I will either do it at night, or I will cook something that I know how to do. I applied my plan today: I made stuffed zucchinis again. But this time I used one of the round zucchinis we find here in France (we … Continue reading

September 21st… fall is officially here. Even though we’ve been feeling its presence since Sunday afternoon: the cold, the gray sky, the headache (due to the change of weather), and the dark mornings. My alarm went off at 7am this morning, it was still so dark I thought it’s gone crazy; it turned out I … Continue reading

There’s a show on French TV called “Diner Presque Parfait” (almost perfect diner); it’s a bunch of amateur cooks who invite other amateur cooks for diner. It makes you really feel like cooking. Today I almost did the same for Francois and his French, but it was lunch; and I did not have time to … Continue reading

How do you want me to work when I have such a view from the window? Doesn’t it make you want to write poetry, to draw paintings? I’m joking I am able to work even with this. Poetry and paintings are not my things. So today was the first day of work from the new … Continue reading
