A true Binky story, the babies in Heaven need them by Isabelle Thornton

Happy 4th of July week-end!!!!
I have some great news to share with you. I am an Author!!. I have been working very hard at this book. Editing pictures and writing the cutest poem. It is beautiful!! I am so happy with it!
It all started more than 1 year ago when my daughter had to say good bye to her Binkies. I had done the balloon ceremony with my other Daughter and knew it would work with her, although if you know my Fairy...She is very stubborn...Must be the Breton blood (Bretagny in France). we send her Binkies attached to pink balloons to the Babies in Heaven.

It worked so was too good to be true. I took pictures and made a post and got 85 comments from wonderful readers! A lot of them telling me I should make it a book! I did!!! Thank you so much for all of you and your support!!!

Foret noire cake recipe

The Foret noire (Black forest) cake is a classic in France.
I made it with my twist. Easy, fast and incredibly yummy!
Duncan Hines Triple chocolate mix makes it amazing!
Follow the directions on box.

I used a bunt cake but you can use any container.
The Foret noire is usually a round cake.

I use Pam 100% organic spray. make sure you spray well.

When cooked, let it cool a little bit and place in freezer for 30 minutes. it helps when cutting the cake.

I cut the cake in 2. Added a layer of whip cream and Some Maraschino Cherries.

In France, we don't use heavy icing. It always has to be light and creamy. Not too sugary.
I used Dr Oetker Mousse supreme in Dark chocolate Truffle.
Follow the direction and cool in fridge before using.

I used it as an icing and then i shaved some Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate on top with more cherries.

Super good!

I have great giveaways on my side bar. Don't miss them!

Father's day French Menu recipes

Yesterday was Father's day. I cooked a French meal.

The appetizer was French baguette with Le Chatelain cheese. Available at Harmons.

French baguette

The French Baguette at Harmons is really good. Of course not as good as what you would get in France. We use different ingredients and quality but i like it. 
It is made with Organic flour, so it makes me very happy.

I love their spinach dip too. Together and "ca fait pas long feux" (it doesn't stay here long).
In France we buy a Baguette daily. It is part of the meals.

I have been packing and not leaving the house very much this week.
Planning a French Meal for Father's day. I will blog about it.
Do you have planned something special for father's day? Any good ideas?
Have a super week end!

X men first class review

I used to read the X men comic books when i was a kid. I even made wings out of card board and somehow attached them to my back. I daydreamed i was Angel. I would run around with my wings outside...I wish i was a kid again.
X men first class was the best of the X men movies. It is that good! 
The characters's backgrounds are very fun...You should see it. Fun.
We ate at Blue Fish restaurant for sushi.
Super good! I love Sushi.

And i love fish eggs...It is a delicacy in France. We eat them at Christmas on toasts.
I always ask for extra eggs on my sushi.

17 Miracles movie by T.C. Christensen review

I made a promess to myself that i would not cry during the movie.
The first lines of the movie got to me...."It is a true story".The story of 2 handcart companies, 500 people coming from Europe to have religious freedom.
This story was full of joy, faith, hope and miracles.
I believe that in the worst of times, the greatest miracles happen if you believe. This movie really touch me and gave me strength. To never give up. Whatever happens in my life.
My husband's ancestors on both sides. Mom and Dad were pioneers. Some came in the handcart companies and some with wagons. They all share in their journals incredible stories that god was with them.
I would encourage anyone to see this movie.
Great History and inspiration. A feel good movie.
Have you heard of the pioneers? Maybe some of you are related to them?
Happy Week end!

Your best shot challenge and a sweet story

This picture of my Fairy was the first photoshoot i took with my Nickon D60.
I never used a professional camera before. I started blogging seriously because i had this amazing camera.
The girls were playing with a small snake the neighbor kid had caught. We used to live in the woods. The light was perfect...The moment was magic.
This picture is not edited. 
I like it that way. Just real and pure.

My son has find a career!

You know sometimes...You have to throw your little boy in the shower...and then, he plays for a while. You have to remind him to wash his body with soap and his hair with shampoo...He gets distracted, you know...

Then he decides to play mad scientist and make potions. Mixing and experimenting...And then he will come out and make you smell his experiments...."It smells so good Mommy!".

Then, the next morning, in the shower...all will realize that your little scientist emptied all the bottles...and that you are out of shampoo in the house.

You will then wish, that your little boy will make a great scientist to pay one day for all the bottles he emptied.  Now,"the cheap shampoo kind" will find it's place in the shower, just for a while...
