ffwD: Broth-braised potatoes
I refuse to say that I am going to keep up with French Fridays with Dorie but I am going to make an attempt to. I have finally got my extras lined up and cut back, on many of them. I plan to commit myself to CEiMB, French Fridays, as weekly and Improv, Secret Recipe Club and Crazy Cooking Challenges as monthly. That should keep me busy but not overwhelmed. I am also skipping challenges that won't be eaten by my family. There is no point in making asparagus when no one here, eats it, no matter if the vegetable is part of the week or month's challenge. I know, you are going to remind me of Muffin Monday. It is Friday and I have next Monday's muffin, baked. I plan to post CEiMB on MY Sweet and Savory. As you will now see, French Fridays with Dorie is right here.
This group does not share the recipe. We would like you to buy the book. Dorie has been good to us and this is such a small way to say, "thanks." There are also the copyright laws. If, it is in your budget, I recommend Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan. I was surprised at the number of recipes, I wanted to make. Before, I purchased this, I questioned if I would really use it. I have never done much French cooking or baking. After the book arrived, I saw that this is the same down to earth Dorie, sharing fabulous recipes.
Today's recipe, Broth Braised Potatoes is simple to make and does not call for exotic ingredients. I had broth in the house. The most "Intensive" work was peeling the potatoes which were cut into 3 inch pieces, although mine are smaller. Add a few spices and cook in the soup. That it it, in a nutshell and while it is easy to make, it is easier to eat. Yep, it is yummy.
