A classic French recipe, easy to make. The recipe calls for 'a croutes' which is roasted vienna bread. Instead of Vienna bread you could use other crusty bread. If you like a more garlicy soup you could rub the bread with garlic prior to roasting. You could also use croutons although this might alter the flavour of the recipe.
These pancakes are served as a dessert in Denmark and the traditional filling is jam and sugar; but you can really add anything to your liking. We also eat them for breakfast. They freeze well for up to 3 months, I place parchment paper between the pancakes and you can easily remove them from the bag even when frozen
Who would have thought? A GUILT FREE Hollandaise Sauce that does not compromise on flavour!!! This is our go-to recipe and we find it better than the sauces filled with butter. Sauce can be made in advance and refrigerated for up to 1 week. From 'Smart Cooking' byAnne Lindsay.
This receipe is simple, yeast, water, flour and salt. The key to the crustiness is to brush the bread with water just before it is placed in the oven. I brush the baguette lightly with salted butter just after baking; it adds a little something
This is a special kind of quiche introduced to our family by our Danish nanny. The bottom is made out of all purpose/whole wheat flour and as such the quiche is not flaky or 'piey'. It has a wonderful flavour and is loved by both kids and adults.
This recipe is from the Champagne region (oh, could one live there only) of France. Yes, no champage in the recipe but feel free to enjoy while you prep. The recipe originally called for 1 cup of lard in place of the 1/4 cup of butter for frying the chicken. I cannot make myself use lard, let alone use 1 CUP of lard.
The flavour combination of Brie, mushrooms and rosemary is amazing. This dish is a wonderful appetizer for a dinner party, or just served by itself as a little something. It is from 'Canada's Wine Country Cookbook' and pairs really well with a Dry Riesling (white wine)
A fantastic show stopper! The flavours are incredible and the dish is easier to put together than it reads. I actually cannot take much credit as it is one of my husband's signature dishes. He prepares the beef on the BBQ in a large stock pot; I am the sous chef on this one preparing the salad ;). You can prepare the salad in advance as well as the dressing. Add as much of the fresh herbs as you like. From the local paper. Great recipe if you are trying to reduce carbs. Recipe calories are lower than listed (only 500 per serving) as rice and brown sugar are not consumed but just used for the smoking
Another recipe that I found from the July/August 2006 edition of Simple & Delicious. This is a french toast bake that's a snap to assemple the night before and bake in the morning. While it's pleasantly sweet as is, drizzle raspberry syrup over the top for a finishing touch. It's really easy to vary this recipe buy using other fruits like strawberries or blueberries or even a combination of berries. Sometimes I like topping it all off with a little whipped cream. Time does not include chill time.
This isn't your typical chicken salad. The sweetness of the seedless grapes, the lightness of the whipping cream, the crunch of the nuts and the dried fruit make a perfect complement to this chicken salad. It's just like chicken salad you would expect to find at a fancy restaurant, but it's super easy to make. I like to eat this with crackers as much as I like eating it as a sandwich.
I found this recipe on the Progresso website. I haven't had a chance to try it, but it sounds interesting. This recipe contains panko-crusted sole (or other thin white fish fillets) and is garnished with a mixture of garlic, serrano or jalapeno chiles, basil and grated orange peel.
