Hash Browns with Goat Ricotta and Chorizo Recipe

Lulu worked from home today, so I brought him breakfast in bed. I love this little ritual we have once in a while. It's my way of showing him how much I love him. I love seeing my hubby's smile when I give him special treats in the morning.

I made some hash browns with goat ricotta cheese and placed a surprise vegetarian chorizo in the center. The chorizo adds a little spiciness to the dish without overpowering the hashbrowns and also some protein. The goat cheese has a tangy taste and velvety texture that complements the other components of the dish quite well.  There's nothing wrong with good ol' fashioned hash browns (we get them from the local pancake house all the time), but if you're in the mood for something a little different, this is a great recipe to try.

Chocolate Lava Cake for Two (with Molten Center) Recipe

Chocolate lava cake is a simple chocolate cake that has not been fully cooked through. That may not sound very appetizing but the result is a decadent chocolate molten center that oozes out of the cake when you cut into it. 

Valentine's Day is on its way! I titled the recipe Chocolate Lava Cake for Two but in my house, I have to share the love with my 10 other family members.

The little one had her first chocolate lava cake today and she asked me, more like demanded, that I make it every day. Even if you're only making it for your special someone, you might want to make a couple more.

Magret de Canard Roti au Miel Epices (Cardamom, Ginger, Mango and Star Anise spiced Honey Roasted Duck Breast) Recipe

I find duck meat to be very sophisticated. So whether you're throwing an elegant dinner or you're having a romantic dinner, duck is the perfect choice.

I'm used to making a French preparation of duck, but I wanted to use oriental flavors for this recipe instead.  I decided to use star anise and honey as the base for the glaze. Star anise is a classic Asian flavor, and I have some very special honey at home that I try to use whenever I need a sweetener for a dish.  Last time I was in Paris I got a jar of raw honey from my sister's in-laws who are honey makers in Amiens, a town in the nothern region of France.  It's just out of this world.
