Raise your hand if you like crepes. Okay, now raise your hand if you don’t like MAKING crepes! Or raise your hand if you’ve never even attempted crepes because you think you won’t like making them. You’re not alone. In my mind, there’s no doubt that crepes are absolutely delicious and there’s no doubt that they are a pain in the patootie to make. My answer to all that? Oven Sheet Pan Crepes.
I think these Cider & Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms are going to be my new signature app. There’re scrumptious little bites that are going to be a hit as an hors-d’oeuvre at a cocktail party, a starter for a family feast (especially Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years) or snack on game day.
Would a tomato by any other name still taste as wonderful? How about a “pomme d’amour”? I hafta admit, the French name seems to inspire a bit more lustfulness than our simple “tomato” does. And Tomatoes Provencal seems just a bit more romantic than Baked Tomato with a Garlicky Breadcrumb Crust!
Thanksgiving week is upon us, and I have yet to post a Thanksgiving recipe. I wanted to, but the universe must be conspiring against me! An apple strudel turned out to be a little lackluster (although we ate it all!) and needs to tweaked and remade. A coffee cake turned bizarre when all the Struesel topping sunk to the bottom. (We are working on finishing that one right now!)
If you’re like me and love a good Cream of Broccoli soup, one that’s a soup and not a glorified cheese sauce in a bowl (although those do have their place & I have one on my site) this is the soup for you. Delicate, luscious, with a few French twists, Russell’s Cream of Broccoli Soup stands by itself. A “raft” of good cheddar is sprinkled across the top and broiled until bubbly and lightly toasted. Amazing.
