This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe is a classic: lentils. We’ve already made lentils a couple of ways for French Fridays – served as a side dish with salmon, with tuna (or without!) and in soup form. I love lentils and each time I make them, I wonder why I don’t make them more […]
Thankfully this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was an easy one. I can’t complain about being “busy” since I am on vacation (although I neglected to put on my out of office reply in email and have been inundated with what seems like more email in the last week than the past month!) but, […]

Ok, ok, sorry. Another French Fridays with Dorie recipe that I seem to have freestyled. It was supposed to be Lemon Barley Pilaf (p 383) which I was pretty happy about but the day I came to cook it, I realised I had a lovely box of wheat grains (wheat berries, couscous and bulgur wheat) […]
