FFwD ~ Happy Birthday Dorie!

To celebrate the trifecta of Dorie’s birthday, the new book launch, and the 4th anniversary of French Fridays, Doristas are choosing to make one of the following recipes from Baking Chez Moi this week.
and here are my two bakes!
Palets des Dames, Lille Style
and Canelles
I forgot to reduce the quantity of sugars for both
hence they were perfect paired with Ginger Tea!
late night baking...
 by the way...
metal pans give way better results!
 using madeleine and mini tea cake pans
beautiful and crunchy exterior and tender interiors!

 Delish potato gratin which the Doristas made
back in November 2010!
  served with chicken basquaise (pipérade)
the Doristas did way  back in September 21, 2012
and one recipe which I had made on a couple of occasions already!

TCSB ~ Last cake from current book

October is the last month
that we bake from the current
and its an own choice month
I narrowed my choice down to two 
and this was the easier one!
Blueberry Crumb Squares
inspired by Stacie
and I did not get the topping right at all!
individual serving just did not work
in this particular case
luckily I have one mini loaf pan piece
 the cookie like dough is very tender
and holds together very well
I used frozen blueberries and works just as good as tin
  from pages 204 to 205

FFwD ~ Roasted jerusalem artichokes with garlic

 Sorry, no jerusalem artichokes in my location
goggled jerusalem artichokes substitution
and got water chestnuts and jicama (spanish) or yam beam
so I used these two suggestions and a potato
and in the end ran out of space for the potato
so just dusted the potato wedges with curry powder
interesting flavors
Dieter's tartine with ricotta cheese and sour cream dressing
topped with home grown chives, roma tomatoes
and store bought cucumbers
I enjoyed the dressing
I used a mixture of ground sirloin and mutton for the patty
I find the rest of the patty ingredients interesting
I had sweet potatoes waiting to be used so
coated them with batter we used for 
the shrimp stuffed squash blossoms
minus the cold soda water
and it worked just as well, crispy sweet potato fritters!
