I purchased my first Le Creuset Dutch Oven (5½ quart, or 26 cm) 20 years ago and have used it regularly through the years. As one might imagine, the interior enamel has become quite discolored through use.
It’s been a long time since we’ve had roast chicken. Part of the reason is that the last couple of times we had it, the chicken lacked flavor and was dried out. I didn’t know whether the problem was the actual chicken or me. Turns out that I was at least part of the problem.
Well, so far, we’ve not been impacted by the tropical systems. However, tropical storm Grace appears to be heading in our direction. It’s still a long way away and will hopefully fizzle out like the previous systems. Just in case, I thought I’d add to our hurricane meals. This time, it’ll be lasagna.
For some reason, when Susan and I were in Paris, we didn’t have any Madeleines. If you’ve never heard of them, Madeleines are French confection that is more like a cake than a cookie. The reason is that they are made with a batter much like one that would be used for a cake.
I’ve been making these roasted potatoes (I actually call them “little potatoes”) for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure how I came up with the recipe which, by the way, is very simple, and is a favorite of Susan’s. Interestingly, the caramelization of the onions as they cook adds a subtle flavor to…
I’ve been a huge fan of Julia Child for a long time. Part of the reason is that I’ve never made one of her recipes that didn’t turn out amazingly good. Rôti de Porc Poêlé avec Sauce Moutarde à la Normande is no exception!
I had planned on making Chicken Cordon Bleu the other day, but plans changed. Tonight, however, is the night for Chicken Cordon Bleu with Mustard Cream Sauce. I can’t remember the last time I made Chicken Cordon Bleu, but Susan thought we should give it a try. I said “why not”!
Last week, I was concerned about the potential of the tropical system named Danny, so I started making meals that would be easy to reheat should the storm come our way and cause a loss of power. As it turned out, Danny fizzled out.
I was first introduced to Betsy’s potatoes at a dinner party at her house some time back. I remember thinking how incredibly good they were, and have been making them ever since.
A couple of weeks ago, I blogged about Mushroom Risotto which I typically have with chicken schnitzel. Susan and I thought, why not blog about chicken schnitzel? What a good idea, especially since it meant having it for dinner!
