Guest Post 1: Cécile’s Tiramisu

Hello ladies!

I hope you are all well! It has been quite some time I haven’t seen you (Beth) or talked on the phone… I miss you! Well, I know it is mostly my fault, since the whole family is visiting, we’ve had very little time for ourselves… We’ll catch up soon!

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you what is probably the best tiramisu I have had in a long long time! J This post is a bit special, as I tasted it at my friend Cécile’s place, so I thought it would be nice to share it with you as well!

Chickpea salad sandwiches

Herblay, France

My dearest Ladies,

Summer is in full swing and the heat is on… even in Paris! I’m here on my own for a few days to visit with my good friends Brechtje, Gwen and Renate, who are all in town. It’s wonderful being able to catch up with my girlfriends. It’s like no time has passed at all, you know? Even though we all live in different countries, the conversation picks up right where it left off. The mark of true friendship if you ask me.

When I’m not in Paris yapping away with the girls over too many glasses of wine, I’m working from home in Herblay. It’s very quiet here as mom, dad and Lucy are in Milos (lucky devils!). I don’t know about you but I find it harder to get excited about cooking for 1, so my meals here have tended to be simple and quick to prepare. Case in point, a couple of days ago I whipped up some of my tasty chickpea salad sandwiches. They were bursting with flavor and healthy to boot. I thought you might enjoy the recipe, so here it is.

Chickpea salad sandwiches - easy recipe

This type of recipe is generally touted as a vegan substitute for tuna salad sandwiches, but I think that’s doing it a disservice.  In my opinion, chickpea salad sandwiches stand on their own two feet and are absolutely delicious in their own right. The possibilities for mix-ins are endless. Experiment and see what you like best and let me know what you think.
