Recipe description :
One of my favorite winter dishes is this beef stew. I got the recipe from my mother in law. The traditional French recipe is made with veal. I adapted it with beef instead, as it´s difficult to find nice veal for making a stew in my local shop. Lovely dish to make when you are staying at home in the warm kitchen while you see the snow outside the window.

I like do prepare this homemade rice salad with shrimps and tuna when we are going on a road trip. Just prepare the rice, heat up the shrimps, chop some vegetables and mix it all in lunch boxes, in the car and off we go. It's a perfect dish to make to bring on the camping trip, serve on the picnic, bring on the boat trip, or just when you want to eat healthy during the week end, and don't have much time to prepare dinner.

Our family loves pizza so much, that we eat it every Friday evening. This is my favorite homemade Neapolitan inspired pizza recipe.

This is a homemade recipe for the French potato gratin called Tartiflette. I first tried it at a friend's place I visited in France. She informed me that is a popular dish in the Alpes and wonderful to eat after a day skiing. If you can't find the right cheese, try a brie, camembert or something similar you can find in your local shop. It will still heat you up, and taste delicious on a cold winter day.
