French Food At Home w Laura Calder / Artist Dinner

French Food At Home w Laura Calder it is one of my favorites cooking shows!

I don't know about you, but sometimes I get overwhelmed when I open up an old cooking book and try to figure out something that I haven't done before. I am a hands- on- person. I rather have somebody go with me through the process then try to figure it out on my own. And for a girl like me that doesn't have a whole lot of French cooking experience, Laura's simple and fun approach to French cooking is one of the best cooking and delightful learning experience that I have ever had!

If you love French cooking but don't have the confidence to tackle that old cooking book, I highly recommend that you watch this particular episode, Artist Dinner. And see for yourself how fun and easy French cooking can be!

The Menu:

 Baby Chocolate Cake
 Beef Steak w a Blue Cheese Sauce
 Endives w Oranges
 Pasta w Nut Sauce
 Vegetable Chips

Because I am in a special diet I made some changes on the recipe. First I don't eat all red meats, so I substituted the beef steak with lamb. And for the chocolate cake I substituted the flour with gluten free flour. Instead of white sugar I used brown sugar. And I only used the whites of the eggs. I haven't made all the vegetable chips like Laura did in the video. I don't fry food. So what I would do instead is slice the vegetables up, then I would sprinkle a little olive oil on it and pop it in the oven.

I prepared this recipe for the first time last year for my wedding anniversary and I am happy to say that it was a success! My husband absolutely loved it! And I was a proud and happy cook.

I can't wait to surprise him with another French dinner!
