I recently joined French Fridays with Dorie.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a group of bloggers that all make a selected recipe out of  Around My French Table, by Dorie Greenspan and post said recipe every Friday.    If you want to join, just click here

My copy arrived last friday and I was beyond excited.  I’ve already read it cover-to-cover (does it make me strange that I read every new cook book like a novel?)  Not only does she have so many great recipes that are both classic and inventive, she also tells a story with each one.  This has become one of my favorite cook books-second only to my Grandmother’s cook book. 

 

 

This dish is everything it’s title promises.  It is creamy, cheesy, garlicky goodness.  Oh and the spinach adds a nice earthiness to it as well.  I used red spinach, as that was what I had on hand.  I will continue to use this as more of a method than a recipe, and a great way to spice up left overs, adding whatever is in the ‘fridge.  As you can see, I took Dorie’s suggestion and stuffed peppers with the rice.  We enjoyed this for lunch with some sautéed shrimp.  “M” choose to have the red pepper, because that’s her favorite color.  “C” choose the yellow, because that’s his favorite color (as “M” dictated it to be a few months ago.)

I can’t wait to make next friday’s recipe, stay tuned for that post!
