Red Berry Barquettes sounds so fancy! For those who think French food is fussy, I'll give it to you that some of it is, but the best of it is NOT at all. And this is one of those recipes. The word "barquettes" refers to the shape of the tart... Continue reading

Thank you, Teresa! And very easy to make, too!

One of my quirks is that I have an issue with recipe titles that name all of the main ingredients. I don't know why I'm picky about this other than I feel that the list of ingredients belongs in the body of the recipe. If all the ingredients are listed... Continue reading

If wild salmon doesn't qualify for a quick, healthful dinner, I don't know what does! I emphasize the WILD part of that because farmed salmon just doesn't cut it. Read more about that issue HERE. The color, taste, and health benefits of wild salmon is stunning and worth paying for.... Continue reading

Cherries signal summer to me. Here in Western Washington, we eagerly wait for the cherry farmers from Yakima to set up their roadside stands and as soon as I see the first one, I stop and buy baskets full. If they didn't cause such stains, I'm sure I would have... Continue reading

You must change that, David! It's a bonus that my fish market will fillet for me, too. So easy and quick.

When I learned that the French Winophiles group was exploring the Provence region this month, I knew my choice would be a rosé. After all, because of the history of rosés, Provence is considered the oldest wine-producing area in France. I could go on trying to explain rosés to you,... Continue reading

When my kids were growing up, pasta dishes were a huge part of my cooking repertoire. They can be made with few ingredients and pretty much put on the table in the time it takes to boil the water and cook the pasta! When you have precious little birdie mouths... Continue reading

You go, Joan! I'd be curious as to your results! Yummo!

Pancakes and waffles are a wonderful weekend breakfast splurge, but if you want real treat, something a little more special, you'll try your hand at a Dutch baby. Emily and I have been making Dutch babies for several years and she, in fact, led me to this recipe when I... Continue reading

Thank you, Kathy. I do like apricots, but I would likely never choose one to eat by itself. In jam, however, I'll consume them forever!

Thank you, Tricia!

I do like the "just fruit" idea and I think peaches would be wonderful with this!

You're right ... there are lots of things that say "France" to me, but I've always admired the beautifully arranged fruit desserts in the patisseries. Thank you, Mardi!

I couldn't tell you exactly, but I'm thinking the secret is in beating the egg whites enough? I did pipe them and it was super easy. Thank you, Margaret!

What is more French than a fruit dessert arranged in concentric circles? It looks so pretty, doesn't it? This recipe is fairly simple, but you have to start ahead to make the tart dough and the ladyfingers, if you're using them. I supposed you can use store-bought ones, but I... Continue reading

As much as it was an adventure, I do think I'll make it again. It was delicious.

It was certainly an adventure! Glad you enjoyed the story. :)

We got the tiniest little flame ... it was anti-climactic for all the build-up I gave it! Ha!! And next time, I do believe I'll go with heads OFF shrimp, too!

I had a pasta dish in Rome that was amazing ... paccheri pasta with asparagus, shrimp, and a cream sauce. It was amazing. When it was set in front of me, I could tell from the "tendrils" at the 11 o'clock point of the plate that there were still heads... Continue reading

One of these days, the THREE of us will cook together!! What kind of party will that be?!! I should've refrigerated the cream overnight. Maybe that was in the recipe and we neglected it with all of our baby wrangling! :)

We've always enjoyed being together ... in the kitchen or otherwise! So this experience will be wonderful. Yep ... he's free entertainment with a whole lot of love thrown in! :)

Cheers, my friend! I'm glad you have Ellen to cook with as well ... I love cooking with family and friends who enjoy as much as I do!

Your dishes are beautiful! They are Longaberger, no? I loved this soup, too, and reading that several of you say it's better the next day makes me want to taste it "the next day"! :)
