Really really tasty when warm and also yummy cold! You can half the recipe easily or double it! Haricot vert is French for green beans. Haricot meaning beans and vert meaning green. French green beans are longer and thinner than most American varieties. They are also more tender and have a more complex flavor. For the most part, they are interchangeable with American green beans which are also called string beans or snap beans. If you are unable to find haricot verts, substitute with the thinnest young green beans you can find. Made for the CrazeE contest 2009
Classic French Beef Bourguignon is one of my favorite meals. Here's the recipe I use. It's the best one I've tried. It's from another site (allrecipes) and was submitted by Teri Smith. It's very easy to do but allow plenty of time for it to bake (3 hours total).
This dish was named after the town by the same name. Lovely side dish that is quick and easy to put together. This can also be made with parsnips. The cooking time is variable....just cook until they are the way you like them.
This is like spicy sunshine when used as a spread on a hamburger or in a wrap. The tartness from the lime is a contrast with the sweetness of the dried fruit. It is important to allow the full soaking time for the apricots.

Plantains are a member of the banana family, but catch them a little before they are ripe and they become a kid pleasing savory snack similar to French Fries.
My 8 year old loved these, so we were pleasantly surprised when she gobbled them up.
My daughter likes these sans sauce, but my Husband and I love them with Recipe #356610

Don't let all the steps scare you, they are very easy to make!
a very attractive addition to a buffet meal, or just with drinks.
you can actually use all bought grilled vegies from the deli, no one would know :)
next time I am going to add some of Mirj's oven dried tomatoes,
Our own Auberge de la Fontaine Lavender Pancakes - these are made with home-grown organic lavender flowers from our garden here in SW France, where we often serve them for breakfast! They also make a very elegant dessert when served with cream and fruit - I sometimes serve them with Recipe #241775. If you cannot get hold of culinary lavender, these pancakes are just fine if served with the lavender honey, butter and/or cream and fresh fruit.
