No ImageDorie Greenspan – Around My French Table

    I checked this book out from the library to give it a test run before I bought it.

    It is wonderful!

    I made her provencal vegetable soup and cheddar chive bread last night….the best veggie soup I’ve ever had, the bread was tasty and best of all (for a bake-a-phobic) easy peasy to make.

    This is on my must buy list.

    Got the book after seeing your review, and then one in the SF Chronicle, and looking at it online. Last thing I need is another cookbook of any kind (!), but got it I did. :)

    I made the apple cake the other day, and it was simple and good. I’d like to recommend a few pinches of cinnamon (or maybe something else?) added in to the recipe. It’s a little bland, and could use just a tad of livening up, flavor-wise, IMHO. I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top of the cake the next day, and that was even okay. It just needed a little something. Maybe some lemon zest?

    Anyway, thanks for the recommendation. I’m sure I’ll make more of the recipes soon. Thanks so much for your fun, lovely blog, Elise. Happy New Year to you and your family, and your guest posters (and your readers too).

    My mom gave me this book for Christmas. After reading your review she knew I would love it, funny thing is I almost bought it for her! This book is absolutely stunning, I can’t wait to start cooking from it! Only problem is I can’t decide where to start! I love how Dorie uses the word “garlicky” in the title of some of the recipes, just makes my mouth water instantly! Happy holidays to you and yours Elise!
