Decadent French style lasagna #DimancheSoir

Need I say more? This is such a delicious classic and if you know me, I love all things French when it comes to cooking and baking for my family.

French Chocolate Meringues

You should have seen my kids when I pulled these out of the oven.  I had fresh pastured eggs to use up, I thought it was time to make these beautiful chocolate swirls thanks to my go-to blogger for all things French, Manger.  Mimi Thorissons cookbooks are one of my favourites from my French cookbook collections.  A…
