Pancake Day... An Authentic French Crepe Recipe

Anytime I ask my son what he wants for dinner, he will invariably say "crepes". Following up on the Galette des Rois blog I posted last week, I thought it would be fun to share another iconic French recipe that my son and I love to make at home. In France, there is even a special day during which pretty much everyone eats "crepes" called "la Chandeleur" .  Every year, on February 2nd... We eat crepes! I like to bake or cook with my son, as I find it's a fun way to teach him numbers while also spending some quality time together. He's in charge of weighing the ingredients and...

Story Time: The Look Inside Collection

    My son received his first Look Inside book for his 3rd birthday. It was the one about cars. Usually, he is not the type of kid who wants to read the same book over and over again... That is, until this book! He just loves to look under all the little flaps and discover the surprises hidden within, and, if I’m being honest, I love it too. The pictures are so well done. Some even resemble live animations. As you turn the flaps over, you can actually see the movement of the images.     The Look Inside books contain...

Galette des rois - My favourite recipe!

As some of you know, I'm French, and today I would like to share a tradition from my country that I absolutely love: “la Galette des Rois” which translates to the Kings’ Cake. This tradition has a long history and has been celebrated in France since the 14th century!     In January of every year, when it comes time for the Kings’ cake to be served, the youngest child in the family has to hide under the dining room table and choose to whom each slice goes as the cake gets cut. As a kid, this was always my...

A Jar Full of Happy

A Jar Full of Happy

This time last year, I came across a brilliant little idea. But, as it has a tendency to do, time flew by... Now the dawn of the new year is fast approaching, and with it the perfect occasion to finally put this idea into action. What is a Happiness Jar? The idea behind it is simple. Every day or whenever the mood strikes you, write down a little note describing a beautiful moment, something that you are grateful for, or even just a sentence that stuck with you. What made you laugh? What inspired you? A goal you achieved, a...

Story time - Merry Christmas Ernest and Celestine

When I was a little girl, my mom used to read me Gabrielle Vincent's Ernest and Celestine book series. Merry Christmas Ernest and Celestine, in particular, holds a special place in my heart. It was one of my very favourite books growing up, and we read it over and over again.  The Ernest and Celestine book series tells the story of Ernest, a bear who is a street musician, and his adopted daughter, Celestine, who is a tiny mouse. This unconventional little family struggles in life, but their love for each other paired with their bond of friendship is so strong that there's no obstacle they can't collectively overcome....
