Chicken & Mushroom Crepes

Chicken & Mushroom Crepes

A couple of weeks ago I had friends over for dinner all the way from Argentina (and some from Paris too!) and I had to come up with a menu. I knew that some of my guests like to eat simple (like me!) and I didn’t want to make pasta. I suddenly saw the crepes in my head and I knew they were the chosen ones!
I haven’t made or eaten one of these in ages. All the more reason to get cooking! My friends loved loved them!! SO I decided to share them on the blog... just one hiccup; I’d taken almost no photos... And the ones I did take were not all that great.

Plum Cake

Plum Cake

A few months back I found myself with my fridge full of plums so I went on a quest to find the perfect cake to put them to good use. There so much plum jam one can eat. :)
I came across this recipe from the New York times (link) that had the best reviews… Actually they were praises. It was easy, straightforward and most importantly it took 15 minutes to put together. I went ahead I gave it a try and we loved it! I’m actually not the kind of person that likes fruit in cake all that much, but this one had no mistakes!
It was great but I didn’t have as many plums as the recipe called for, or the right size of cake pan so the look was a little different, less pretty one would say. Still very tasty though.

During one of the eatwith dinner parties I hosted last year we met an Australian couple from Melbourne and we immediately hit it off. They invited us over for dinner at the apartment they were renting during their stay in Paris, and let me tell you, we were spoiled! I still remember the cured salmon we had as an entrée. The thing is, Nathan, is a chef so off course his food is beautiful and tasty.
We stayed in touch during the year and were very happy to learn they were coming back to Paris for almost three weeks! We invited them over to our house for dinner one evening so we could properly catch up and they could see our new home. We had the most fun evening!!
