Dear readers,

Thank you so much for all your recent visits, comments, invitations to memes, etc... I am sorry I didn't take the time to respond. These past 10 months have been life changing and I am sure you will forgive me for being less and less present on the web once you know what was going on: I was cooking up my very best creation, a baby! Hanaé was born 1 month ago in California. She is, of course, the most beautiful and the sweetest baby girl on Earth. Her dad and I have never felt so happy!

Cooking and blogging have become a bit secondary, as you can imagine... However I will continue reading your many excellent culinary blogs, and I will try posting new recipes on this blog once in a while. I hope you'll keep checking My French Cuisine for updates and that you will make good use of the archives.

A bientôt !

How exciting Estelle. Félicitations! I have continued to drop by your blog from time to time and have thought it was a pity not to see more posts. But there are more important things in life, like your baby girl!

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you. I remember my little daughter Victoire born 1 year ago :) Enjoy her to the fullest. Time flies by too fast and before you know it, she will be 6 months old and then 1 year old.

Actually Estelle, I have a question for you : Do you know where I can get some merguez sausages in the south bay ? I've been craving a real couscous (not the american one, the real one) but the french guy who sells them at the farmers' market in sunnyvale is always out :-( !

Hi guys,
Thanks for your kind words! I'm really touched.
Mike, I don't know where to find good merguez sausages... A friend of mine made some himself, though. I'll try to get his recipe.

Congratulations! Such a blessing. I hope life is settling in for you all.

I just stumbled in, and was having great fun reading some of your recipes. I arrived at one of the recipe pages first, and hopped around the recipes before deciding to see what was new. so I just saw this part.

I am not so great a cook, but I do try. Breads and baked goods are my next area to try (again, this time with some hints and tips from a master). But I believe I will try the Le navarin d'agneau, eggs "à la coque", and the homemade fresh cheese as soon as time allows in a week or so. And others as I go along.

You have a beautiful web page. I will be back to look over more of your recipes. I certainly hope you find your way to writing more as your lives evolve.
