There is excitement in the air over Obama's presidency, even over here an ocean away.

French Perception of Obama’s Presidency

I've been opting to stay inside cooking up stews and baking. Anything to stay warm! Read about my favorite cookbook here:

Once Upon a Tart

As an alternative to hibernating the winter months, I suggest warming the oven to bake a quiche or boiling up a hearty pot of soup. Here is a recipe for a Ratatouille Tart adapted from Once Upon a Tart, the cookbook I reach for when making soups, quiches, salads, dressings, and sweets.

And no, I don't have my French driver's license yet, but please don't ask.

The Privilege of Driving in France

In France driving is considered a luxury. Neither coming nor going, I have resigned to going through the whole arduous process of obtaining a French permit. While the rules aren't dramatically different, the aggravations seem to be never ending.
