Actually, this blog belongs on the all-time favorites list. Clotilde Dusoulier, a French food writer based in Paris, started her blog "Chocolate and Zucchini" way back in 2003 and it is fabulous. It's published in English as well as in French, so take your pick. She offers recipes and resources, blogs about food, travel, cooking with kids. She has two children of her own, so she writes from personal experience.
She's written several books. Her latest, Edible French, received rave reviews and made Oprah's list, "The Best Cookbooks of Summer 2013."
As for her blog, I just love it! Her English is flawless and modern. She lived in California for a couple of years. I was just glancing through her "top ten reader favorites" posts. Among them are "58 Ways to Use Your Cucumbers", a tutorial for "Homemade Cloth Napkins", and a recipe for "French Scalloped Potatoes." Personally, I'm going to try her recipe for "Feta and Fresh Herb Quick Break" asap! chocolateandzucchini.com/recipes

Surely, the past, present, and future connect in this miraculous state we call life. In this light, history and all human experience are ever-present. Wouldn't it be nice, then, if we could enjoy each other, if we could appreciate and celebrate our differences? Let us love! Let us have fun. Let us toast each other and wish each other well. Now, in our awareness, is the time to be happy, to do our best, to live fully to our purest, highest standards.
