I really liked this one. Not all members of my family did though, the one who does not like cinnamon loved the frosting. It was very light and not too sweat. I did not have 10 inc cake pans but I did have 9 inc. The cake did rise a bit so I had to cut a rather large section of the top. I loved it and would make it again for a party. It was a bit big for the 5 of us.
This was so good. I did buy frozen haricot vert and I did not have any fresh parsley so I used dried, all the same it was delicious.
This was easy to make and very good.
I used this on my fish and baked it in the oven and also on my Fajitas.
Next time I will not use as much garlic.
This was a big hit in our house. First time making creme caramel and not the last.
I did the Bonne Idée on page 362 and added the chocolate. I was having people over so I needed 8 desserts.
I was skeptical that this caramel would turn out OK. It was hard making it even at the bottom of the ramekins.
It turned out just perfect:
I could not find the ingredients needed for this recipe so I did not make the cassoulet myself.
I did however buy one ready made from the new french shop in town.
I have never tried cassoulet before so I was excited to try it.
I heated the contents in a bain-marie as the sales person suggested.
Does not look were pleasant
Not so much an eye candy.
I thought it tasted good but my DH found it a bit bland. I will try it again if I see it on a menu in France so I know how a good cassoulet is suppose to taste like.
Happy New year Everyone!
I did cheat a little bit. I did bake them in the oven and used much more of the duck fat than just 2 – 3 tbl spoons. I was also making steak and wanted to concentrate on that and my Bearnaise from Julia Child’s MAOFC.
These potatoes are so delicious. I do not know what these potatoes are called we only have yellow or red. I used the yellow ones.
I made this soup just for me and took it to work and had for lunch for a week. I loved it and specially the horseradish cream. I did not offer it to my DH, he would say it was to bland. He persisted and what do you know too bland for him.
I love the packaging for the horseradish it has not changed for many many years.
