La Crepe Fraiche

La Crepe Fraiche is a small cafe offering everything from crepes, to cupcakes, to frozen yogurt.

After reading posts from CAB Cooks and Pink Candles of Ridgemont High, I’ve been wanting to check it out for myself.

The mish mash of offerings was a little confusing, but we decided to stick to the crepes.

Fraise Chantilly (Strawberry coulis, fresh strawberries and Chantilly)

This sounded really delicious. The strawberries were  sweetened and a lovely red. I wish the chantilly was presented better rather than just a blob on the plate. The crepe itself was a little too moist and soggy. I would have preferred it to be crispier.

What are hot chocolate cookies? They are all the things you love in a hot chocolate drink, but in a cookie form. Chocolate cookie, with a gooey chocolate center, topped with a melted marshmallow.

I saw these cookies on A Full Measure of Happiness. Unfortunately the exact post is no longer on the blog, so I had to recreate my own version of the recipe.

Feburary 5th is World Nutella Day, and I’m hurrying to get this post published before the day ends! Now you might be thinking I’ve already done a Nutella mug cake, but actually I haven’t.

I did a chocolate Nutella mug cake which had Nutella and cocoa powder mixed into the cake. I also did a brownie cake with Nutella swirled in. But this one is a pure Nutella cake, or “Pure Nutella.”
