Bastille Day is not a day that is well known or celebrated by most people. So what is it all about? I can tell you one thing: it is not a day celebrating the English indie band, Bastille. During the year 1798, the French were experiencing food shortages and King Louis XVI was losing popularity […]
There are a lot of fantastic people that visit our little French bakery in downtown Providence. So many of you share your mornings with us, your life events, smiles, laughs, and appreciation of a good weekend.

Gingerbread Cookies With cookie season if full swing, we at Ellie’s want to share one of our favorite seasonal cookie recipes with you: the Gingerbread Cookie.

Gingerbread cookies are a quintessential New England winter cookie. The blend of spices in a fresh cookie is the perfect accompaniment to a mug of hot chocolate. If you get a gingerbread cookie mix kit from us, the dry ingredients are already supplied. The directions are on the card included with the mix, but we thought it might be more fun to watch a video. If you want to start from scratch, we have the ingredients in the Gingerbread Cookie Recipe post. Comment below, and let us know if this video is helpful.

Chances are if you see a pig walking the streets of Smithfield, Rhode Island, it belongs to Ann Marie Bouthillette. “They like to go out for a stroll occasionally,” Ann Marie jokes. The truth is, these American Heritage Berkshire pigs are very inquisitive, and while they might enjoy a night on the town, they have […]
