African beignets, also known as mikate in Congo, puff-puff in western Africa, are a very popular dessert/snack in Africa. These beignets come with a mango sauce with mint leaves. They are so delicious; I could eat them at any time of the day. Contrary to New Orleans beignets, the mikate are made with just flour and sugar, which are dipped fried later on.[Read more…] about African beignets (puff puff) with mango sauce

Smoked salmon with linguine pasta is a recipe that is very dear to my heart. It brings back so many memories from my time in Italy. When I first moved to Italy, the only pasta recipe that I knew was tomato sauce with pasta. Before me joining my husband (Patrick) in Italy, he had been playing professional basketball there for over five years and he was used to eating pasta every day. At the time, I could only cook congolese food. There was one problem, however, I couldn’t find any African store in the area. I had no choice but to try new recipes! I had countless failed attempts. At some point, I really thought that I would never be able to figure out how to make great pasta. I was getting discouraged. But I kept trying![Read more…] about Smoked salmon with linguine pasta recipe
This scrambled eggs recipe is the simplest and tastiest egg recipe, and I love to make it for my family. My children are not big fans of spices or veggies in their eggs. So, this recipe is a guaranteed hit. I also think that this is a good introduction to cooking, should one want to learn how to cook. I can’t wait to teach my boys how to make scrambled eggs, so they know how to at least make eggs for a great in-bed mother’s-day breakfast . I believe that cooking is a life skill that ought to be taught to boys and girls for so many different reasons. (That discussion is for another post.)[Read more…] about The best scrambled eggs recipe in 5 min
Almond cake with citrus and clementine gelée is another great dessert that celebrates every summer. In this dessert you will find lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit and clementine. The combination of flavors and the light cake is out of this world! I wanted to reproduce something that I ate in Paris the last time I went. I have always enjoyed the French gastronomy, especially when it comes to dessert. When I was in Paris couple of years ago, I made it a point to be a gastronomic tourist. Every day my goal was to try different eateries or restaurants to taste the food. A dream! I spent the day doing just that while my husband was exploring art galleries. It was THE best experience! I have never had so much fun eating! LOL[Read more…] about Almond cake with citrus fruits and clementine gelée
