Food Therapy from La Tartine Goumande

Happy Monday.

With the heavy news and images coming from Japan, I couldn’t help but seek simple comforts today.   I’m getting it from my morning coffee and from a beautiful post from Bea at La Tartine Gourmande. Her photos and recipes are always divine but a recent post about a family trip to Crane Beach seemed most fitting today. Plus the madeleine recipe makes any Monday morning that much brighter.

Read the post and get the recipe HERE.

Bea informs readers that her long-awaited cookbook will be published in 2012.
