I was very happy this week to see the French Fridays with Dorie recipe was cheese-topped onion soup (pp 56-57). Not only because I love a good French onion soup but because I know how good it is – I’ve made it before. In fact, I made it the very first week of FFWD when […]
(aka: (Not) mussels and chorizo) It’s a quick French Fridays with Dorie post this week. Many of you know that I was quite ill last weekend and I am still only eating very plain food. So the thought of Mussels and Chorizo (page 316) didn’t exactly thrill me. In fact, it didn’t really thrill me […]

A couple of simple […]
With only four ingredients (in equal quantities of each), this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (p 434) was a cinch to whip up. “Quatre quarts” – four quarters in French – is a French version of the traditional pound cake. Of course, it being January and all, I didn’t think Neil and I needed […]
