FFwD: Nutella Tartine

Nutella Tartine

This French Friday with Dorie pick, for me this week, was the perfect recipe. It was super quick and chocolatey and aside from the nutella, I actually had all the ingredients already. Perfect!

Instead of brioche, I used challah as the recipe suggested as an alternative. But not just any challah — I had some cranberry challah rolls in the freezer. This was the perfect excuse to defrost one, slice it up, and slather it with goodness. Plus, I thought the cranberries added to the overall flavor.

Rosemary Buttermilk Waffles with Crisp Prosciutto

Rosemary Buttermilk Waffles

I am somewhat obsessed with rosemary. I will put it in anything. Exhibit A: these waffles here. Add rosemary? Why not. It actually went really well with the maple syrup and crisp prosciutto (exactly what I was hoping for). And as an added bonus, it came together very quickly on a chilly Sunday morning.

As long as you have buttermilk (or can make a substitute with milk and lemon or vinegar), you should have everything to throw these waffles together. Especially if you have a 4-foot rosemary plant growing steps from your . . . → Read More: Rosemary Buttermilk Waffles with Crisp Prosciutto

FFwD: Just Wheat Blini with Smoked Salmon

Buckwheat Blini with Smoked Salmon

Time for another French Fridays with Dorie? Yep, it sure is! This week: Buckwheat Blini with Smoked Salmon but even though I work at a place that uh, actually mills flours and I have access to all kinds of flours I don’t even know what to do with, I didn’t manage to get some buckwheat flour in time before I needed it for this recipe. Doh!

I had to use regular whole wheat flour for the buckwheat flour. Even so, these were really delicious!

Is It Still Pumpkin Season? I Hope So! Because Here's One Stuffed with Everything Good!

Stuffed Pumpkin

So, here it is the last night of 2010 and I am posting about pumpkin…a pumpkin dish that we had last month, even. Is that wrong? I think one of my resolutions should be to post more!

This is a recipe by Dorie Greenspan from her new book, Around My French Table, which I have been posting about semi-frequently for the French Fridays with Dorie shindig. But, this is a rogue effort and I am even listing the recipe below! Mainly because it is already on epicurious.com and also because I changed it up . . . → Read More: Is It Still Pumpkin Season?
