How tomatoes became acceptable
Wouldn't every day be nicer if someone brought me a box of Pierre Hermé Paris macarons?
This was such a funny movie - great comedic talent all-around, including the late Gene Wilder
This Caponata changed my mind about cooked vegetable salads. With each ingredient remaining distinct, including olives, capers, and a dash of vinegar, I literally could not stop eating this salad when I tasted it the first time I had it, and I am happy to share the recipe, which I've adapted from Fabrizia Lanza in Sicily. It's almost as good as spending a week in Sicily(which I'd love to do, again...) Click to read the story & recipe...
Someone did this lovely painting (of a photo I shared) of the tomatoes I have on a tiered stand in my kitchen
Such an iconic restaurant (and two really nice women) - best on their next venture(s)!
I like the idea of marshmallows made with 1 cups of whiskey.
Now if they could just put them across the rest of the country!

That is one tiny factory. Good for him!
I recently gave this soup recipe a little update on my site, and it's one of my most popular posts. In spite of the heat, people in Provence eat this soup in the summer, making use of the best vegetables in season. Me? I make it for the basil pistou, the provençal version of pesto...
Good advice, from the guy who writes the very funny Hope That Helps page...
I don't post animal pictures but this little guy (or gal) with a broken arm was too sweet not to
It's great when summer is in full swing. I always buy too much at the market. (This morning, my arm felt like it was going to fall off lugging everything home.) But it was worth it...
But was it ever really the same, ever since they gave up the turquoise & orange motif?
The ultimate DIYer?
They really shook things up, so to speak, when they opened such a great cocktail bar in Paris.
This article may be behind a pay wall but someone brought me a box of their pastries last time I was in San Francisco and they were really good. So it's a "bonne adresse," as they say in French...
If you're somewhere where you can get fresh figs in abundance, this fig crostata is a great way to use them!
This Sunday, you can dive in the Bassin de la Villette in Paris. There are 1,25, 3 and 5km swims - open to anyone over 18yrs old!
I've been working on my September newsletter & when we got back from the countryside a few days ago, I put the tomatoes I got at the market on this foofy stand. But I kinda liked the way they looked and am using it for the lead photo in the newsletter 🍅🍅 [You can sign up for the newsletter here http://madmimi.com/signups/46736/join]

The weather might be rather hot in the south of France, but if you're up for a hearty dish of beans, sausage and duck confit, coming up is the Fête du Cassoulet Castelnaudary!
This may be my all-time favorite ice cream! A big scoop of salty-sweet caramel with little bits of melting caramel studded throughout. Over the years I've tweaked the recipe and I got it just to where I like it. It's one of my most popular recipes of all-time and I just posted it over on my blog. Check it out =>
Fried chicken (and duck confit) are two of my favorite foods...
