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 >>

My love of food comes from a long line of wonderful and creative Italian home cooks who didn’t always have a lot, but knew how to make a lot out of what they had.
