I approached this week’s French Fridays with Dorie with a little bit of trepidation. A Tourteau de Chèvre is basically a baked cheesecake, made with goat’s cheese. No, it wasn’t the goat’s cheese part that worried me, it was the “baked cheesecake” part. Oh, I’ve made them before – but as you can see in […]
I was so excited to see this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe – Bistrot Paul Bert pepper steak (pp 238-239). We don’t eat that much red meat these days, though I do love a good steak. When we do, we buy from Rowe Farms, where we can be sure that the animals led happy […]

I love them but have never made them though I have had some success with the choux pastry before, making gougères and profiteroles, twice. Neil and I had people over for dinner last Friday and totally unintentionally, it […]

I was pretty excited to see this Quinoa, Fruit and Nut salad (p138) on the list of recipes for French Fridays with Dorie because it totally reminds me of when I lived in Paris. Not only did I first discover quinoa there, but this type of salad is exactly what I ate for dinner many, […]
