Charlotte Chantilly | JC100 – Week 9

Well…

Looks like I have been forced to bake again for this weeks Julia Child recipe.

This time it’s the Charlotte Chantilly with strawberries, a wonderfully creamy dessert encased in delicious homemade ladyfingers. As was mentioned on my previous baking effort, which happened to be my first for the blog, I had earned myself a 100% track record by successfully baking the Reine De Saba.

Now maybe my confidence was a little too high this time around, as I successfully completed the difficult part (though not very), of baking the lady fingers, I felt like I was on track for another success… Well folks, I was then graced by my very first minor baking disaster! As I was beating the egg yolks and sugar for the Chantilly, everything was going great. I had beat them until ribbony and pale yellow, then continued beating over not quite simmering water until hot to the touch, then proceeded to the last step of beating them while chilling.

This is where disaster strikes and my brain fails.

Goat Cheese & Chive Scrambled Eggs

After making Julia Child’s Rolled Omelette several weeks ago for the JC100 celebration, I’ve been using that high-heat method to cook my eggs ever since. It’s super quick and results in the amazing soft and creamy eggs. So one day as I’m making eggs, I happened to have goat cheese in my fridge and chives in my freezer (chives freeze great if you didn’t know!). Now I love the combination of eggs and chives, as well as goat cheese and chives, but it occurred to me that I had never put all three together. Fortunately that problem didn’t last long. Soon after, I was chowing down on the most delicious, creamy and flavourful scrambled eggs I have ever made! If you’re a goat cheese lover like me you NEED to make these!

S’more Stuffed French Toast

As I was relaxing on my couch after a particularly long day at work, I had s’mores and sandwiches on my mind. Of course, having sandwiches on my mind pretty much goes without saying! But these thoughts of s’mores are much more rare and came about due to a workplace discussion regarding tabletop s’mores at a local gastropub. So initially I was thinking s’more sandwich…WHa??? Too strange. But then, the obvious came to mind.

S’more Stuffed French Toast.

Duh! Why was that not my first thought? I don’t know. All that matters is it was thought! So a few days later, here I am presenting the S’more Stuffed French Toast! I’ve also tried something BRAND NEW that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time…I made a VIDEO recipe! So check it out and let me know what you think, should we do more or just stick to blogging?

Salad Nicoise | JC 100 – Week 4

Time is flying by with the Julia Child 100 year celebration and it’s already onto week 4! This time with the fancy and filling Salad Nicoise [nee-SWAHZ]. With each assignment Carlene and I receive, we try to stay true to the recipe, but add a little extra flare if possible! This week is no exception. Instead of piling a bunch of ingredients into a bowl, we wanted to use some great fresh tuna and a different plating style to class things up a bit!
