Leek & Butternut Soup and Apple Hazelnut & Oak cake from Canelle et Vanille!



I have food on my mind. I’m nursing like crazy and that makes me hungry. I’ll never ever lose my post-pregnancy weight if I eat every time I’m hungry.

My last post was a crispy tofu recipe from my mom. I also emailed some pals and asked them to share some easy recipes and I got a ton of really good and simple ones and even some funny suggestions like “I have this amazing recipe called but it’s pretty complicated so maybe you guys should work up to it?” from my friend, author Gemma Burgess.

Another friend Aran Goyoaga is one of the most talented cooks, bakers and photographers in the world and maintains the gorgeous site Canelle et Vanille. You can’t see all the comments on the last post because I’m having a problem with the back-end of both Maquette and my portfolio site so stay tuned for that to be fixed.

In the mean time I want to share Aran’s ideas because they’re beautiful, hearty, and definitely something on my agenda for this blustery autumn and impending winter. Plus, Thanksgiving is coming up and these two recipes would be perfect! Thanks for sharing Aran. XOXO.

    I just stumbled across your blog, and I’m so glad that I did! This soup recipe is one I’ll have to try in the near future, and the pictures are drool-worthy! I can’t wait to read through your past posts, it looks like you’ve got a really lovely thing going on here. 🙂

    Best wishes,

    I’m obsessed with everything Aran of Canelle et vanille does. She has a cook book too fyi.
