I’m really enjoying this new little group, French Fridays with Dorie. So is Mr. SGCC. He likes that I’m cooking real food, and not just sweets. I like that too, but I also like that if I get really busy I don’t have to participate every week. It takes the pressure off and allows me to enjoy the recipes I do make, because I choose to.
I couldn’t join in last week because I was in San Francisco for BlogHer Food. So was Dorie. Did I mention that I met her? I did! And, she was lovely. That’s all I’m going to say about it now, because I haven’t posted my recap yet. You’ll just have to be patient. Patience is a virtue, you know.
This week’s FFwD recipe is Vietnamese Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup. I loved it!
Dorie’s soup has lots of bright, fresh flavors like ginger, garlic and chilies. The base is made with chicken broth and creamy coconut milk. I adore anything made with coconut milk! Though not in the original recipe, I also added some Penang chili paste to my soup. Chili paste and coconut milk are BFFs. Everyone needs a BFF – even chili paste and coconut milk. read more >>
