Exciting news!

Hello guys I’m back with another post today and with some interesting news for anyone who cares at all. I officially decided to focus all my efforts on French desert recipes as I completely fell in love with it. I will probably do some random other types of recipe posts as well from time to time but for now the focus will be French deserts. 

Today’s post is more of a news post to inform everyone of what I have planned for the blog. I hope everyone enjoys the rest of my blog and I’ll keep you updated on more recipes in the weeks to come. As always remember to keep on keeping on with the French language at this great website

Cranberry French Toast

Hey guys and girls I'm back with a new post today and still keeping the spirit of French cuisine alive. I must confess I totally have a sweet tooth and just can't pass anything with a sweet taste to it. Today's recipe is from my trusted source, Pinterest, and is a short, but sweet one.

Get it? I'm also keeping the post short as tonight I'm a bit tired and not in the mood to really think that much. So here's the French recipe - and remember to take a look at my French learning website once you get a chance!

Ingredients For Cranberry French Toast
1 loaf bread (challah)
8 ozs cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups cranberries (fresh)
1/2 stick butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup milk

Please excuse if the recipe is not set out step by step. I think making French toast is sort of self explanatory. This is just to remind you that any type of food can be made sweet! Enjoy!

Strawberry Crème Brûlée

Hello guys I'm here today with a new post for you on Strawberry Crème Brûlée. It seems that I just can't stay away from the deserts and the French recipes. It's probably because I'm doing the whole French thing and learning how to pronounce French words makes one feel somewhat closer to French cuisine I'd guess.
I found this wonderful desert during my times scrolling through Pinterest which is really addictive by the way!

As always this recipe isn't mine I got it from the source listed below so all goes to Emily Hobs who's recipe this is. Okay guys and girls enjoy the Strawberry Crème Brûlée and remember to keep on learning your French!

Here is the White Chocolate-Strawberry Crème Brûlée shared by Emily. This is a French desert with a twist of Florida strawberry. She adds the strawberries because of their sweet taste and because it's her absolute best fruit.


8 large egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar, plus 6 teaspoons
4 ounces chopped white chocolate
1 quart Florida strawberries, stemmed, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place 8 (1 cup) ramekins in a large roasting pan; fill roasting pan with enough hot water to come halfway up sides of ramekins. The hot water keeps the humidity up in the oven, preventing the custards from cracking.

Now go ahead and whisk together yolks and vanilla until they form as one.

Bring 3/4 of a cup of sugar to simmer over medium heat together with cream. Remember to whisk frequently. Now remove the pan from heat and stir everything in white chocolate till it melts. Then whisk the hot cream into yolks. Here comes the best part: Sprinkle strawberries into each ramekin whilst pouring cream over the strawberries then bake for 40-45 minutes.

Take the ramekins to a rack and let them cool for 30 minutes before putting them in the frig and leave them there for about 2 hours. Afterwards serve with some custard and teaspoon of sugar.

Add a bit of glamour to your French toast.
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk

Oil for frying

Slice croissants in half and set out to dry a little (better egg absorbtion).

Make egg wash by beating eggs in container, large enough to dunk bread slices.

In small cup mix baking soda and milk. Then mix into egg wash.

Heat a little oil in large skillet about 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Test oil by adding a drop of egg wash to oil.
When desired temperature is reached, dunk the in egg wash. Fry until golden brown and cooked through.

As always this is not my own article I got all the information from here:
