June 5th, 2013 | Good Morning Sunshine & Lunch In Paris

I really love simple breakfasts like this on bright, sunny mornings. It just makes life seem that much more amazing.. it’s true what they say, it really is about the simple things. This is one of my favourite morning meals, cheesy scrambled eggs. Easy & delicious.

I recently picked upLunch In Paris again. I originally bought it for a friend’s birthday back in February, ended up peaking at it and then couldn’t put it down. So I had to buy her another copy hah! Life got busy, and I kinda forgot about it for a little while. For some reason I always find it just so hard to find time to just sit down and read a book. I have a number of books that I’ve started but never actually finished. (Does anyone else do this?)

Anyways, it really is a tremendously good book. I rarely recomend a book before I finish.. but it really is worth picking up. It’s really witty and actually has me snickering out loud. Each chapter ends with 2 or 3 french recipes which just makes the book extra special. It’s the author’s memoir about falling in love with both Paris & a boy, which sounds a little cheesy (like my eggs) so I feel the need to clarify that it’s not a fluffy romance story. The book starts off with “I slept with my French husband halfway through our first date. I say halfway because we had finished lunch, but not yet had our coffee.” I died a little when I read that haha! The recipe section for the first chapter is titled “recipes for seduction” and one of the serving guides says “serves 4 or 2 if you’ve worked up an appetite.”

Still not sure about it? You can read the first chapter online here.
