The blog was created in order to participate in the French Fridays with Dorie group. http://frenchfridayswithdorie.com. As for myself, I’m an early-30s female living in Chicago. By day, I am a trial attorney. By night, I ponder what I’m going to bake or cook next.

    I have tagged you. You can read more here: http://three-cookies.blogspot.com/2011/08/gourmet-french-biodiesel-and-chocolate.html

    It requires a little bit of effort, not too much, and the outcome should be interesting. I hope you can manage to find time to participate otherwise its OK.

    Hi, I’m trying to work out how to give you a ‘like’ on FB. I can see how I can share a post and how I can subscribe, but where is the FB button to let me ‘like’ you? Sorry to be a bother, I must be blind!

    Very impressed – your day job. I was just looking at your awesome home made ice cream & couldn’t comment (no comment box) & thought you might be perhaps a housewife. An attorney, though! Great stuff! :)

    You’re quite amazing to balance life as an attorney with blogging! I find it difficult enough to balance my 8-5 job with the time and energy that goes into an updated blog. Yours is gorgeous. So happy to have found your inspiring posts!
