Aug 25, Easy French recipes that make this cuisine a piece of cake - let them eat it

AppId is over the quota

Not all French food is like those spectacular dishes you've seen Julia and Jacques prepare on public television. After all, French cookers have jobs and attend school and have busy lives just like you and me.

As an added bonus, this page offers a chance to learn some French while preparing fast and fabulous French food. And if my conversions from English titles to French aren't grammatically correct, those of you who speak the language may feel free to laugh at them. At least, I get credit for trying, don't I?

TO PRINT A RECIPE: Found some you want to keep? (I sure hope so.) Just highlight them, then right click, hit "Print", then "Selection", then "Ok? or ?Print?" again. That was easy, wasn't it?
(If this doesn't work, give your printer a good whack with something - like I do. It won't help you print but you might feel better.)
