French Fridays with Dorie: Rice Pudding and Caramel Apples

Rice. Pudding. Two words to strike fear into my heart and, unfortunately, this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe. Rice pudding with caramel apples (p. 429) to be exact. Not sure when exactly my dislike for rice pudding started and I am not sure exactly what it is about this dish I don’t like but […]

Tuesdays with Dorie: Espresso profiteroles

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was Espresso Profiteroles (p 411) which I admit I was quite excited about. In theory.

AND esprosso-flavoured choux […]

French Fridays with Dorie: Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter

Believe it or not, I barely made any changes to this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter, p268). It looked like a simple dish and who am I to mess with simple flavours, especially when they are Dorie-approved.  As she says, you don’t have to do much to make a […]
