Three-Pepper Burgers

My burgers are two-pepper burgers as our grocery store did not have any peppadew peppers. I saw Mardi’s recommendation about finely chopping the peppers too late as my husband had already made them:) My husband cooked these on a skillet instead of the bbq which I think was the right move keeping them together. They…

Ladyfingers

When these ladyfingers were assigned for Baking Chez Moi I knew I would be making something with them. I picked Raspberry Tiramisu en Verrine from Around My French Table. This is a layered dessert a verrine (short glass). Ladyfingers are brushed with kirsch, framboise or creme de cassis or in my case Chambord. The raspberry…

They-Might-Be-Breakfast Cookies

I was a member of a committee at my son’s school. This was a 7 AM meeting so I tried to bring some baked goods, mostly muffins, when I attended. The attendees were always grateful. This recipe from Dorie’s Cookies caught my eye so I tried these instead of muffins. These were a soft and…

Fruit and Nut Croquants

Fruit and nut croquants are everything my husband loves in a cookie; orange, almond and raisins. I used all the optional ingredients in this cookie; orange rind, nutmeg, almond extract and cloves. I took Dorie’s advice “go heavier on the nuts than the fruit” and added 5 ounces of whole almonds with skin and 3…

Mixed Berry Pie

Dorie says “As soon as there are berries in the market, there’s pie in our house”. I went with that theme for this week’s baking assignment for Everyday Dorie. Berries went on sale at one of my markets for $1.98/6oz, I took that as a sign to make a pie. I did not use Dorie’s…

Chocolate Pot de Crème

Tuesdays with Dorie members were tasked with making Tea and Honey Pots de Crème this week. Since I have not been fond of our latest tea flavored recipes I thought I would make one of Dorie’s Bonne Idee. There were three to choose from; vanilla, chocolate and caramel and I chose chocolate. As expected these…

Chicken and Salad Milanese Style

“Coronavirus Edition: Choose whatever recipe from Everyday Dorie you prefer to make , or for which you have ingredients available”. Still working from the completed recipe list, I chose this chicken recipe as it looked doable for week night meal. I skipped the oven portion of the recipe and did just the pan frying. I…

Salt-And-Pepper Sugar-And-Spice Galettes

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we have a simple recipe with ingredients that most of us have in our cabinet. My family and I have decided we don’t like black pepper in our cookies, we have made a few over the years, so I left out the black pepper. The other spices include cinnamon,…

Martine’s Lemon and Apple Tart

I am posting late this week, Thursdays with Dorie?, because I wanted to make this tart for my anniversary which happens to be today. This monumental year of 2020 is having me celebrate all kinds of milestones at home. I can also see my planned vacation, a cruise, vanish before my eyes. But on to…

Raisin Swirl Bread

I am on the home stretch with self isolation, just 5 days to go. The last few days I have been baking daily. We were out of bread so I decided to make a loaf. This breakfast bread sounded like something we would all enjoy. I don’t have much experience with yeast breads so I…
