  • I discovered a new charming blog thanks to that nice picture about Redhead Room.

Chocolat and me

Today I want to try a new kind of post: Recipes !
I'm found of pastries and wish to become a baker soon. It's actually a friend of my whose gave me that idea of blogging about some of my "kitchen adventures".

Everybody loves chocolat, so let me start that new rubric with a:
"Chocolate Mi-cuit"


2 eggs / oeufs
40gr almond powder / poudre d'amande
30gr sugar / sucre
25gr butter / beurre
75gr (or more, ou plus ^^) chocolate / chocolat

Melt butter and chocolate in a "bain marie"
Mix eggs and sugar
Mix the chocolate with the sugar and eggs.
Put it in a mold ( cupcake mold are great for that)
Put them 15min in the frizzer (so the heart of it will be hard and take a longueur time to cook)
Then 15min at 200°

Faite fondre le beurre et le chocolat au "bain marie"
Mélangez oeufs et sucre ensembles.
Incorporez le chocolat au mélange sucre et oeufs
Mettez la préparation dans des moules ( les moule a cupcake sont parfait pour cela"
Les mettre 15min au congélateur ( le coeur des fondant durcit par le froid mettre donc plus longtemps à cuire)
Enfournez 15 min à 200°

Eating Rainbows

Yesterday the weather was terrible, so I decide to bring some colors in it ^^
I made: ... A Rainbow Cake !!!

I tookthe idea on Whisk Kid but used an other sponge cake recipe ( one without butter )
Then I done a frosting and a suger paste. But that last broke down.

I perfume my cake with Rose Water and put raspberry jam between each layer. Yummi ^^

Ol' Blue Eyes

   Ahhh Frank Sinatra, The Voice of the 50's and 60's. Hearing him sing is breath taking . I might have around tree hundred of his songs in my Ipod, so imagine how few I breath !

Well, our fellow is born in 1915 from Italian parents. He is known as one of the best cronner ever and had sold more than 150 millions of disques. Frank started is career at twenty years old with a jazz band. Five years later he joined Tommy Dorsey and his band. In 1943 he singned with Columbia with who he will makes more than 300 records.

In February of the same year he also appeared for the fisrt time in a movie ( playing himself ) then in August in his first role movie : Higher and Higher.
In 1944 he plays for the first time with Gene Kelly in : Anchors Aweigh . Did you know that the famous scene where they are both singing and jumping on beds had to be shouted ... time because Frank couldn't jump in rhythm . 

Then came other movies like :
  • From here to Eternity
  • Hight Society
  • Pal Joey
  • Take Me Out To The Ball Game
  • On The Town

In music, tunes like " I'm A Fool To Want You" (that he wrote for his wife at the time Ava Gardner), "I've Got You Under My Skin", " The Lady Is A Tramp" or "My Way" are famous around the world.

To finish with, I recommend you The Official Frank Sinatra Website and Wikipedia for more infomations. I used both web site to create that article.

In Take Me Out To The Ball Game 

In Anchors Aweigh 

So long !
