French Fridays with Dorie: Roast Chicken for Les Paresseux

Boy, Dorie was not kidding when she said this is a Roast Chicken for lazy people. Soo easy! And look at the outcome!

The Beau loved this dish. In fact, he loves French Fridays with Dorie a whole lot more than Tuesdays with Dorie – less sugar!


French Fridays with Dorie: Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake

This ‘cake’ was mostly apples. I used Honey Crisp, Pink Lady, Fuji, and Granny Smith apples.

French Fridays with Dorie: Hachis Parmentier

Just out of the oven…

It looks like more potato than meat.

I don’t have a ricer, so the mashed potatoes were really soupy right out of the oven.

It totally reminds me of comfort food.

The Beau loved this dish and enjoyed it with a glass of wine.

The next day the potato was much less soupy.
