Red passion: strawberry-cranberry smoothie

Journey to the Orient: saffron and orange blossom rice pudding

This recipe was inspired by a former Afghan neighbor. This old lady did not speak much French, but always gratified me with a huge smile when she crossed me in the elevator.

Frozen treat: exotic popsicles

This encouraged me to sudt my…
