Mandarin Pie

Mandarins are in season . And oranges . The fruit bowl is always full . A good excuse to use them in juices , salads , desserts and cakes . So versatile only their cousin … the lemon .
And that bright and warm color of tangerines also served as inspiration for reforming the look of the blog. With spring approaching I wanted something warmer and more functional . After some experimentation , the final result looks pretty nice . I hope you like it as I do .
And why not use the same inspiration for a dessert ? Here she is !
