livrepascale_1.jpgWednesday marked yet another historic day in the world of food blogging, when one of our number had her first cookbook published. Pascale Weeks, of C'est moi qui l'ai fait! has written a lovely little book of American and British recipes called Cookies Muffins & Co. Sadly for the anglophones out there, the book is written in French. Happily, for the expats here in Paris, it gives us great recipes for our favorite desserts using only ingredients readily available in France. I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy from the author herself the day before it was released (hurrah!) but you can get yours for a mere 2.76 euros from Amazon.

It's a beautiful little book and has some great looking recipes. My only (slight) criticism is for the format: paperback recipe books are a pain to use in the kitchen. Here's hoping this first book is such a success that the publishers recognize that the second one should be a large hard-bound book with pages that easily stay open when you lay it on the counter!

Congratulations, Pascale!

It is sold out on amazon :( bou hou hou hou
They'll have others in a week, just enough to buy flour and chocolate!

Many thanks Meg. I promise : next time it's going to be a bigger book ... finger crossed.

Good luck! I suppose the advantage of this tiny format for us readers is it's correspondingly tiny price. Lucky us!!
