I hope you have a lovely weekend! My days here in France are coming to an end soon and I’ll be heading to a new farm in the near future. So I am working on travel plans and catching up on work this weekend. I’ve been loving making meals from the garden, tomato salads, cucumber salads, roasted veggies, and my favorite: a chocolate beet cake! What are you up to this weekend?
P.S. Big thank you to Design Sponge for featuring me on their Day in the Life series!
Thank you to our beautiful Frolic! sponsors this month!

One thing I love about being a blogger is it seems there are friends to meet up with wherever you are in the world! I was so pleased to find out that Flora Douville, an artist I’ve long admired and blogged about multiple times, is living not too far from where I am staying here in Brittany! Last week we had the chance to meet and it was ever so lovely. I absolutely adore Flora’s light, airy paintings featuring interesting brushstrokes and playful shapes. Flora has just reopened her shop and is offering free shipping to Frolic! readers. Use the code “FROLIC14″ at checkout. Enjoy! xo
I love sharing recipes that you can cook for one, since that’s what I am normally doing! Obviously you can cook any of these recipes for more than one person. One of my favorite things to make is baked eggs. At home I have mini cast iron pans that I love making baked eggs in and they are just perfect for a single serving.
I always include herbs, depending on what’s growing and what I have on hand. For the ones I made today, I used chives. But I love using sage, thyme, or oregano. I often include proscuttio or sauteed greens too.
I have so much fun experimenting with this recipe. I often toss arugula or fresh greens on top with creme fraiche or with my favorite hot sauce, Secret Aardvark! I am constantly changing it up! Thanks to my sister Lizzy for teaching me how to make these eggs.
2 Tablespooons cream
A little butter
Fresh ground pepper
Shallots or onions and/or garlic
Toss a little butter into a pan and let it melt. Put in cream and crack an egg. Add herbs, proscuiotto, onions, and whatever else you like. Cook in the oven on 350 for around 10-15 minutes. Top with greens and creme fraiche if you like. Eat with bread! Yum!
