The semi soft version of the farmer's cheese works wonders for this recipes and can be easily find in all grocery stores. For this recipe you will need an 8inch/20cm non stick skillet or omelet pan. You can serve them warm or at room temperature. If you want them warm, keep the over preheated at less then 200F.Submitted by MARIUSCOSMOS

This is a great way to play with mushrooms and enjoy some traditional French ingredients (Duxelle is a French mushroom paste that they use in EVERYTHING savory!). Enjoy it with Hungry Girl's Chicken Cordon Bleu or a simple roasted chicken!
This is a basic quiche recipe that I used all the time when I lived in France. The Lorraine in the recipe is the bacon, onion & swiss cheese. You can take those items out and replace them with anything you like. Any type of veggies in the house usually will work!Submitted by FRANCOPHILE619
As an alternative to sugar packed crust, sweet and tender pears encase a fruit and nut filling that's similar to cheesecake.
Up to 3 days before, prepare cheesecake mixture, but don't add the almonds.
Day before, poach pears and make sauce. Refrigerate overnight. Stuff pears and keep in the fridge for up to 6 hours. Bring pears and sauce to room temp before serving.
These are very fancy, and replace your usual Thanksgiving pie quite nicely.
If you really want to wow your friends and family this summer, try my take on a French classic salad with seared tuna steaks and two homemade dressings.
***You will need a food processor to create these dressings.***
***This is by no means a quick recipe, but it is relatively easy.
If you leave out the potatoes, the salad has 14 g carb and 426 cal per serving.
