Balsamic Roasted Chicken with Easy Cherry Sauce

thumbnail image

Whole chicken has pretty much become a staple in our home because it ticks all the boxes: it’s very convenient and easy to cook, and it’s much cheaper than buying separate chicken cuts. We will usually roast the chicken on the weekend, eat the dark meat straight away (my favorite part!) and use the breasts during the […]

Pear and Gorgonzola Brioche Toast

 Honestly, I wish I could eat brioche everyday for breakfast and for my afternoon snack. Or challah bread – that works too. The texture, the sweetness…I love everything about these breads. Unfortunately, I can’t say that my guts and my hips feel the same. I feel sick when I eat too much gluten so I try […]

Easy Homemade Cinnamon Ornaments

It’s no secret that I love cinnamon. The name of my blog kinda gives me away in seconds. Cinnamon could be my middle name, really. I love to use it everywhere I can: in food (sweet and savory), in homemade beauty products and now…in decorations. When I came across Annalise’s tutorial for homemade cinnamon ornaments on Completely Delicious,  I knew I had to […]

Easy Plum and Ginger Roasted Duck

To be perfectly honest with you, the idea of cooking this duck was completely freaking me out.  I don’t know if it’s because it’s a rather expensive meat and I had never cooked a whole duck before but boy, this little guy stressed me out!  I had even planned a whole day for this recipe when I usually make and […]

Cranberry and Pistachio Rice

Rice is the perfect side to tons of dishes because it’s simple and easy to cook. But if we’re talking Christmas, Hanukah, New Year or any celebration then… please forget plain white rice. It’s not worth your holiday table. It doesn’t have to become much more complicated but at least we have to dress it […]

Candy Cane Chocolate Bites

Top quality chocolate bars and peppermint candy cane. That’s all you need to make these chocolate candies. It’s so easy I’m not sure I can really call this a recipe. These candy cane chocolate bites were inspired by a French treat called Mendiants (literally beggar) that are chocolate discs topped with just a few nuts and dried fruits. They’re very […]

DIY Cinnamon Sugar Scrub

I’m super excited to be posting something a little bit different today on Not Enough Cinnamon with this “recipe” for homemade cinnamon sugar scrub. I guess it won’t come as a surprise if I tell you that my love for all things DIY beauty developed thanks to Pinterest. Before this oh-so-inspiring-but-time-consuming little website came into my life, […]

Brie and Cranberry Sweet Potato Skins

Some time ago, I was shopping at my local grocery store when a lady caught my eye for some reason. In just a few seconds, I knew from her look that she was French. I don’t know if that’s a sixth sense that allows you to identify instantly your fellow-citizens or what, but I just knew. I […]
