French Fridays with Dorie: Boeuf à la ficelle

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, boeuf à la ficelle (p 248) was one I was a little leery of for a few reasons.  Firstly, the recipe itself, including the headnotes is three pages.

French Fridays with Dorie: Baked apples filled with fruits and nuts

Well now. For this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Baked apples with fruits and nuts, p 392), I’m going to plead “jetlagged” since I well and truly messed up!  It’s weird because I read the recipe over the holidays in Australia and I totally knew what I should have done yet when it came […]
