My Review

I'm going to be honest, the thing that caught my attention with this recipe was the name. I love France. Oh la la.

What I loved about these: they are so basic. The ingredients are staples found in every pantry, so I didn't have to make any last minute run to the grocery store to whip these together.

The taste is mild, but even so, Donald said that they were 'a little taste of heaven.' I think that the next time I make them I will take the advice of some other reviewers and add little bits of perhaps?

A hit!
