CtBF – Hard-cooked eggs with chervil mayonnaise

I don’t often make my own mayonnaise, but have done so in the past. David’s recipe is a bit different since it uses a whole egg instead of the yolk. Otherwise pretty straightforward. No chervil to be found, so I used garlic chives that are coming up beautifully in the garden. Also I used my… Continue reading CtBF – Hard-cooked eggs with chervil mayonnaise

CtBF – Potato, feta and basil tortilla

Not something I make often, but I did enjoy the versions I made with French Friday’s. I wasn’t sure about the basil. Well, and not the feta. I’ll admit I did look back at the other recipe, you know, “just in case”. Easy enough! Potatoes diced. Cooked to barely tender in some good olive oil,… Continue reading CtBF – Potato, feta and basil tortilla

That’s a good thing, because it makes for… Continue reading CtBF -Fresh herb omelet

The beet soup is simplicity itself. I decided that this time I would actually roast the beets per the recipe, though I often pick them… Continue reading CCC – the delicious month of February

ffwd – coddled eggs with foie gras

Let me just start by apologizing to the extremely talented Doristas who chose our recipes this month. So far I’m 0 for 3 in on-time posts, and only 1 for 3 altogether – I might end up batting .250 if things hold up (and I’m allowed to count my late post). Not too bad for… Continue reading ffwd – coddled eggs with foie gras

CCC – It’s June! tomatoes, potatoes, eggs and herbs

I thought that with my busy June schedule, I’d pick recipes that were related somehow. With a common thread connecting them. I do that all the time with dinner parties and celebratory feasts – if there’s something that provides a degree or two of separation to other items on the menu, then you can be… Continue reading CCC – It’s June! tomatoes, potatoes, eggs and herbs
