Dear Tandy, from Lavender and Lime asked me to host this month challenge. And coincidentally I’m going through a challenge myself. Nothing serious, don’t worry.
My most recent challenges are Croissants and Pain au Chocolat. I love them, my kids love them… everybody loves them! But how many of us are able to bake our own perfect, flaky and buttery delicacies? I just tried to bake a batch, and it was a disaster!
So this month our challenge is to bake at least one croissant and one pain au chocolat. Why both recipes? Because the dough is the same, so why not add a few pieces of chocolate and have two for one?
Who’s up for the challenge?
Don’t forget to link back to this post. For more info, visit Tandy at Lavender and Lime.
We have until midnight at the end of this month to post our recipe.

Thank you Tandy! Which me luck! 🙂
Croissants isn’t the most easiest thing to make … I have never succeed. Well done … I love fresh croissants – but there is not many that can do them so flaky as the French. My hat of for you. *smile
You are right Viveka. But that’s why it is a challenge… I hope you can participate, it is fun to try new things… Thanks for your comment 🙂
I try knew things … a couple of time per week, but I don’t like to cook things that take long time – I’m living alone .. so it has to be dishes that is easy to make and not leaving loads of leftovers.
Even if I’m a trained chef .. I never enjoyed baking as such.
Well, that’s ok too. I hate to do the dishes too 😉
Okay … I love washing up !!!!! Deal! *smile
You’ve got the right to cross your finger!
Rock on girl!
Thanks Dedy! Are you up for the challenge? 😉
oh my goodness. Croissants have been my downfall, I have tried many times to make but they always come out heavy. I will have to do some research and see what I can come up with, Don’t be surprised if my post is just photos of me eating other people’s croissants 🙂
Thanx for a real out of the box challenge! Have a great day
Hi Angelica! Yes, they have a lot of work, but they are soo good!! Almost as good as eating other people’s croissants 😉
Seems so delicious… well done dearest, Thanks and Love, nia
Tank you dear! I hope I can make it 😉 do you feel like trying too?

This sounds like a fun challenge, I have not yet succeeded in making the perfect croissant,maybe I now will give it a shot! Thank you for the inspiration!
It is fun, yes! I hope you decide to join us. They are going to be the best croissants ever!! 😉
Thanks a lot for your comment!

Hi Karen! I’ll make sure to post only the good ones and not the 25 hard rocks that I’m sure will precede The One 😉
Would you give it a try and join us in this fun challenge? 🙂
Thanks a lot for your comment!
I think you will do well as I have seen the lovely things you have baked. Unfortunately, my oven will not hold its temperature…it is a guessing game right now. I’m only using it for low and slow braises until it can be repaired. 😦
I love them too! Thanks a lot for reminding me of them even more since I’m on a diet. LOL
Haha! Yes it is hard… Diets I mean, I’m on a diet too and is…not a happy time.
Do you feel like participating? Is going to be fun!
Hmmmm… I’m not sure I’ll be able to… I’m still trying to get that croissants and pain au chocolat out of my head. *sigh*
