Mussels (moules): So good and tasty and easy, you'd want to slap somebody!
Feast your eyes and indulge in this super easy, super tasty dish!
French food can remain a mystery to many, however as I have come to learn, (and will definately share!) all it takes is just a little creativity and a willingness to try something new!
With that said, I give you Moules à la Margot!
To give you a quick backstory, her name is Margot: A beautiful French woman who I met while walking my dog. Turns out, Margot lived in the United States for a short spell and was eager to practice her English with me and thus invited me over for an apéro (ah pear oh). So, I showed up to her place armed with a bottle of wine and didn't leave her apron strings until she told me to sit down and enjoy, and I did!!!
This is what she made, hence the name.
Again, this is one of the easiest and tastiest meals I have prepared! My sweet husband and my sweet 3-year-old nephew throughly enjoyed this, in fact, he told me and I quote, "C'est TROP BON, Tata!" -- "It's too good, Auntie!" Bless his heart! :D
Key to mastering French food:
1. Don't over think it.
2. It is all about presentation
(still working on that one myself)
3. Use BUTTER or CREAM or BOTH!
Moules à la Margot!
Mussels have hair, you need to cut them off with either your knife or scissors. Use scissors, it is easier. Must do for each mussel!
But First, cut the hairs off the mussels. (pic 3 & 4) This can be a bit time consuming, so I use scissors, in my opinion, it seems to go faster!
Bonjour et Bienvenue!

Frenchified for Life
is a fabulous little lifestyle blog about truly embracing French life!
My intent is to simply inspire you to create something unique and beautiful in your everyday life. The French have this wonderful and annoying habit of seeing the world through rose colored glasses, might as well learn something from them!
That said, I lift my glass to you!
By the way, I mention the name Cachou (or The Cash) a lot, I'm referring to her...
