I found this vintage French cookbook and had to add it to the Pixiepine arsenal. I am going to try and use the recipes by translating them one at a time. Anyone want to help ? ;)
The 1973 cookbook is called “100 Desserts, 50 Trucs” (“100 Desserts, 50 Tips”) and is written completely in French. The hot pink & orange graphics combo sold me too! I bought this book from an Etsy seller named Fauxbrit13, who has been a delight thus far. Check out her shop!

Next, one of my favorite ways to fill my belly. Fresh baked ciabatta bread, olive oil-n-herbs, and some red wine. Yum!
A familiar favorite: biscuits and gravy a la The Dirty South. I've been using a mix of unbleached white flour, whole wheat, and spelt to try and be healthier. It tastes really good too.
And finally, my under-researched but steadfast conclusion...raw tahini just doesn't do it for me. I am a die hard fan of the crazy good potency of tahini. The raw was so...bland. Anybody tried one with a kick?

Then a little kitchen witchery beyond what the recipe called for! I also added vegan sausage crumbles. Look at all the magically vegan things you can add to food

My art-coffee-mayhem partner has flown the coop to un-sunny Oregon...and I miss her terribly. It's been a year since she moved (can't believe that!) and I am finally feeling creative again. I've got a few painting projects in the works.
