Soupe a l'oignon

Today's recipe courtesy of The Hundred Foot Journey in theaters August 8th is for Onion Soup. This is one of my favorites. There is nothing better than a cold night with a hot bowl of Onion Soup. YUM! 

Summer Tiramisu Cake #FreshFruitBowl and Giveaway

This post is sponsored by Good Cook. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


My mission this month was to create something delicious using the new Pro Freshionals Fresh Fruit Bowl. This 3 piece bowl is available exclusively at Bed Bath and Beyond. This bowl was the perfect kitchen tool to help make this delicious cake. The 3 piece set includes a large bowl, colander and lid. I love mine and I know that you will love it too!

Gratin Dauphinois #100FootJourney

The Hundred Foot Journey #100FootJourney

Gratin Dauphinois is one of my absolute favorite ways to cook potatoes. Thus is a luxurious dish that is so simple to prepare. While this recipe calls for gruyere, I have also done this with parmesan and sharp cheddar. Whichever cheese you use, your family will love that you made this for them.

Omelette aux Fines Herbes #100FootJourney

The Hundred Foot Journey #100FootJourney

Welcome to another Foodie Friday courtesy of The Hundred Foot Journey! This week we have a delicious Omelette with Fine Herbs. Omelettes originated in France and had only the addition of fresh herbs to the delicious and fluffy eggs. Chervil is also known as French Parsley. Make sure you use a small non-stick pan when making an omelette.

For many women, (especially those who have had kids) it starts with a sneeze. You sneeze and feel that tiny little leak of urine and go running to the bathroom. If you are lucky, you can take care of this by strengthening your pelvic muscles. Do some Kegels. I am doing them as I write this and you would never know it by looking at me. The best way to gauge the results is to try stopping and starting your urine stream the next time you are in the bathroom. Feel that? Those are the muscles that need to be strengthened.

Enjoy!
