cheezy crabs

I was introduced to a new French food, le Tourteau Fromagé, which takes its name because it resembles a crab shell but has nothing to do with crab or anything savory! It's a light summery cake and is really yummy fresh from the fridge!

I thought that it looked burnt from the outside but Mystery Guest assured me that it was not burnt but was just the color the crust takes on while baking.

When cut open the inside is white and creamy-fluffy and just so easy to eat ;) We managed to polish off the whole thing (ok its not thaaaat big) in 1 sitting héhé.

Found out that this little guy comes from Poitou-Charentes which is on the west coast of France below la Loire and above Bordeaux, never had heard much about this region before but if this yummy cake comes from it maybe it is a place i should go check out!!

Hat's off again to Mystery Guest for making me try something new!!

oishii sou~!

Oh, I haven't written on my blog that I officially decided to go on a "diet" (that is, I decided to stop eating red meat, eat no less than 5 veggies a day, and cut down on the huge amount of rice I've been eating recently...all of which will probably result in losing weight LOL)?

So, no sweets for me! (Good thing I don't have much of a sweet tooth anyway, but the German chocolate that one of my students just brought me from her trip to Europe IS really tempting...I'm eating it piece by piece VERY SLOWLY over the course of the week...)

P.S. Look at my blog for an adorable picture of some of my students! (^^)v
