Yummy French Food!

Let's get something straight. I hate cooking. I hate how it takes forever to make the food and forever to clean up the mess and it's only a few minutes of pleasure. I HATE IT! But for some ungodly reason I decided last night to spend THREE HOURS cooking and I enjoyed it :). I made these yummy french dishes:

Salade de Mesclun: really just a salad with vinegrette :/

















Pommes de Terre Sautees au Romarin: This is the closest picture I could get to it, it came out alright but I probably should have made the slices thinner.





















Oeuf en Cocotte aux Poireaux: This was a lot more delicious than it looks, is was seriously the highlight of the meal. I plan on making it a lot more in the future :)


















For dessert I made Gateau au Chocolat, my favorite kind of cake :)



























It all came out wonderfully! It was seriously delicious :)
This morning my cooking craze continued as I made some crepes with strawberry filling (imagine actual strawberries as the filling. Later I plan on making a snack of crepes with nutella (yum yum)!






















You can find the recipes for all of these dishes here:crepes,cake,baked eggs dish,Sauteed potatoes

P.S. Ariel I used the cookbook you gave me years ago!! :)

  4. Thank you for your kind comment. Mmmm cake, I love desert! I was looking at your sidebar, and I would recommend a more monochrome theme to your blog, but that's just a personal preference.
    Hope
