FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is for Quiche Maraichère, which is basically a vegetable-filled quiche, but with the cheese on top. The recipe can be found online here, but of course, it’s also in Around My French Table.

My tart crust was my favorite whole wheat crust and although it shrank quite a bit during the par-baking, it turned out just fine.

I used carrot, onion, garlic, and some artichoke hearts for my vegetables (I did not use the celery or the leeks) – mainly because I did not have . . . → Read More: FFwD: Quiche Maraichère

Spelt Biscuits with Sage, Orange Zest, and Black Pepper

Spelt Biscuits with Sage, Orange Zest, and Black Pepper

I have a new favorite baking product – and it is Spelt Flour. I’m not quite sure what it is about it, but everything I’ve baked with it just has a velvety, rich, full flavor that I am in love with. When using, I’ll typically replace one half of the white flour in a recipe with the spelt flour. I have been experimenting with it for awhile now in pie/tart crusts, scones, cookies and now…biscuits!

For this recipe, instead of using half spelt flour and half . . . → Read More: Spelt Biscuits with Sage, Orange Zest, and Black Pepper

FFwD: Compote de Pommes Two Ways and Apple Compote Buckwheat Muffins with Hazelnuts, Raisins, and Molasses

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is Apple Compote Two Ways or as the French would say half of it, Compote de Pommes Two Ways. I made mine the second way — basically I kept cooking it until it was super think. Then added some butter. I was expecting something like dark apple butter, but it was really just more like thick applesauce. And unfortunately, I’m not a huge fan of applesauce. So, I decided to use it to make . . . → Read More: FFwD: Compote de Pommes Two Ways and Apple Compote Buckwheat Muffins with Hazelnuts, Raisins, and Molasses

A SE Portland Brunch at Trinket

Trinket Restaurant for brunch, Portland, OR

Trinket 2035 SE 39th Avenue Portland, Oregon 97214

Recently, there was a restaurant a mere seven blocks from our house that we never got around to trying — Kingdom or Roosevelt. But, just last weekend it reopened as a neighborhood brunch spot called Trinket, and we tried it right away (well, within a week). I think that says something about my love of brunch over my interest in meat-centric, wild game meals.

Honestly, I really love that there’s a restaurant in this space — I pass by it everyday . . . → Read More: A SE Portland Brunch at Trinket

Breakfast at Sen Yai Noodles

Breakfast at Sen Yai Noodle House

Sen Yai Noodles 3384 SE Division Street Portland, OR 97214

Noodles for breakfast? That’s crazy-talk! Of course, it isn’t really and technically, most of the breakfast menu items at Yen Sai are soups, porridges, eggs and breakfast-y what-nots. We went to a preview breakfast Tuesday and left plenty full and fairly ready to start the day.

This is, of course, the newest restaurant within the Pok Pok empire, and it just opened at the end of last week. They have hours for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and while the . . . → Read More: Breakfast at Sen Yai Noodles
