Our word of the year is GROW. Not just in followers and likes but in knowledge, creativity in recipes and skills and in exploring new cooking techniques. To help us reach our goal we decided to devote a whole month to a Progressive Dinner and use French recipes. We each researched cookbooks, watched videos and bounced ideas off of each other. Each one of us tried a new technique, not all were successful but, we grew in our knowledge and had a great time exploring the French culinary world!
Our first recipe is from Casserole Gal Rhonda and is an appetizer,
Cheese Creme Brulee. Full of flavor, really quite easy and looks impressive.
Next we have a recipe from Casserole Gal Kristen, Potage Parmentier or Potato and Leek Soup. This soup is a classic comfort food. Easy and effortless in preparation, but full of flavor and possibility.
Our next recipe comes from Casserole Gal Kristen and is Soubise (soo-BEEZ) which is an onion and rice casserole reminiscent of a risotto in texture. Serve with a roasted chicken and simple tossed salad or roasted vegetables and it completes the perfect meal.
Casserole Gal Rhonda made this dish from Around My French Table, Slow Roasted Tomatoes. Use cherry or grape tomatoes, oil, seasonings and roast in a low temp oven for a colorful and tasty side dish.
These Croque Monsieur Sandwiches are cheesy, toasted and a must to try.
Casserole Gal Rhonda tried Julia Child's Casserole Roasted Chicken recipe and it may not look the best but, it proved to be flavorful.
Cheese Souffle is a French classic and Casserole Gal Kristen had been wanting to experiment with for years. This won't be the last time Kristen makes a souffle and she will try different flavors.
Classic Strawberry Tart is made up of a flaky crust, rich pastry cream and glazed strawberries what more do we need to say about this colorful and tasty treat from Casserole Gal Kristen.
