A Picnic in Provence "Corner View Sunshine part 2"
Thankfully this week has been much slower than the last couple of weeks. I have actually had a moment to breath and even read a book. I just finished the book Picnic in Provence and feel like I took a trip there myself. Written by American author Elizabeth Bard this book is a true story of her journey from New Yorker to living in Provence, France and her unexpected journey to the new title of ice cream maker. This book is witty and refreshing as she shares her struggles as a child who suffered living with a parent who was mentally ill, too being a new mother, and living in a country where no one is fat. Picnic in Provence is also a cookbook. This week I have made three recipes from the book: A Soup Au Pistou, Chickpeas and Roasted Peppers, and Saffron Carrot Cupcakes. This book is a little ray sunshine in one's day.
