Rhubarb Custard Crepe Cake

Rhubarb Custard Crêpe Cake

After weeks and weeks of studying every weekend it felt absolutely glorious to spend a Saturday flipping crepes instead. Oh how things have changed.

Pork Loin Steaks in Creamy Shallot and Mushrooms Sauce

One of the most vivid memories I have of my my mom’s kitchen is her working magic on a piece of pork…aka mercilessly pounding it with a meat mallet. Before you jump to any conclusions let me explain…Her meat mallet was absolutely gorgeous. It was a two-sided tool with a mini-axe on one side and […]
