The food was definitely wonderful, Cher. And so was Alice! :)

It's thanks to Alice for the TRHEE pastry creams. She is of the belief that if one is good, three are superb!

If you had shown your presence at all, Mary, I'd have put you to work! There would have been no "mouse in the corner"!! :) Doristas are participatory, for sure!

Unstoppable? Yes, that is our Alice. Our day was wonderful ... it was like we were old kitchen mates from way back.

Glad to have you following our posts on FB, Tricia! It was crazy ... the fish recipes were not hard, but if Alice hadn't made the pastry creams ahead of time, we'd never gotten the eclairs done!

So busy! But I can't complain ... at least, I'm not moving countries like Alice. Bless her. I hope the rest of the move progresses smoothly.

We've been enjoying unusual weather here in the Pacific Northwest this January. Typical January weather is overcast, gray skies and cold temperatures, but we've been experiencing lots of sunshine, blue skies, and some 60°days. It feels like Spring has sprung and I even saw some rhododendrons blooming last week. On... Continue reading

You're funny, Diane! And after Alice left, I went through my book and put a blue tab on every recipe I haven't yet made ... there's too many of them!! :/

It helped to line out ahead of time what we were going to make, make a grocery list, and split the ingredients. It was a lot of fun.

We actually said, "Let's just 'Mardi-fy' these babies and make them mini!"

Thank you, Susan. Usually, I just make cream puffs with the choux pastry, but I broke out the pastry bag this time! :)

A few weeks ago, I learned that one of my French Friday pals was going to be in town for a few days visiting her mom. After a few Facebook messages, we worked out a plan to spend a day cooking and baking together from our French Fridays cookbook, Around... Continue reading

When we first moved here almost fourteen years ago, we lived in a temporary apartment home while our former home sold and we found one here. Of course, we had a kitchen and I had requested certain of our home goods to be delivered to us in the apartment so... Continue reading

Moules Marinières is one of my favorite ways to eat mussels. So easy and quick to make that they can be enjoyed even on a busy week night especially if you've cleaned them ahead of time. The recipe calls for FOUR pounds of mussels, but can easily be scaled down,... Continue reading

Happy New Year! Here it is already two weeks into the year and I haven't checked in here to celebrate with you. We've had a busy start to the year and it promises to deliver much more! Resolutions and me don't live very well together and as I've done in... Continue reading

The month of January brings new commitments to exercise and clean eating habits so it is fitting that our first Baking Chez Moi recipe for the year is Granola Energy Bars. Dorie gives amounts for the oats, nuts, seeds, and dried fruits, but she also gives lots of room for... Continue reading

As we end this year of French Fridays with Dorie, we enter the last few months of cooking through Dorie Greenspan's cookbook Around My French Table. I've spent almost four years cooking with this group and as strange as it might sound, we French Friday Faithfuls are a tight group... Continue reading
