Healthy homemade chocolate, fruit and nut trail mix

I’ve started buying little packets of trail mix this year because I promised myself to only nibble on healthier snacks. I’ve been going through indecent amounts, so it’s high time for me to prepare some of my own homemade trail mix. You can play around with healthy ingredients, but keep in the chocolate.

James’s EGG omelette

When James comes home I’ve been known to beg for one of his omelettes. Now in Normandy together, I have a hankering for the scrumptious egg dish for ‘brinner’. You know, the meal between brunch and dinner (thank you, it’s all my own work). We head off to the market of Honfleur to get the…
