Cinq à sept ("five to seven") (pronounced "sank-ah-set") is a Quebec French term for a time in the afternoon intended to be spent with friends or colleagues, enjoying light pre-theatre meals, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres or to escape rush hour traffic. A "cinq à sept" is held before the formal dinner hours, before the participants eat in restaurants and is not strictly between five and seven o'clock.
In France, cinq à sept is a synecdoche for a visit to one's mistress, derived from the time of day Frenchmen would make such a visit.
Why no category for Lamb? I had to fit this into the "Beef & Pork" because there is no appropriate category. Also, I had to guess at some of the ingredients entered, as there was no exact correllation in the SparkPeople database. However, I think I came pretty close. Enjoy - this is great stuff!Submitted by WATERN2WINE
I give credit to JENNLOVE for inspiring this recipe with her Crustless Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche recipe. I love to wander through the farmer's market, pick out the seasonal fresh vegetables, and figure out later what to do with them. This is how this dish came to be. Because of the skim milk and reduced amount of eggs, it is more similar in texture to a frittata than a true French quiche, which is richer and creamier. But it is still very good and makes a good dish for dinner or a nice Sunday brunch. My son (Mr. I-Hate-Quiche) loved this and gobbled down two slices.Submitted by COPPERHEAD71
"The quick coq au vin is a streamlined twist on the labor-intensive French classic. Instead of the chicken being browned in bacon fat and then braised in broth, Cognac, and wine while onions and mushrooms are cooked separately and the liquid then thickened, our skillet version takes just 45 minutes from start to finish. What's more, it captures all the savory richness of the original."
Fine dining without the health or financial guilt. I put this together to satisfy the steakhouse craving, delivering all the flavor without the excessive fat. I know everything is in grams, they are easiest to work with in the kitchen if you have a scale, and make baking far more consistent.Submitted by RAINMANJA
I adapted this recipe from Cooking Light after my daughter was diagnosed with allergies to gluten, soy and dairy. The original recipe called for 3/4 cup of egg substitute, which I never have on hand.
This recipe is great served with rice and broccoli.
My husband has always had a sweet tooth and being on the SCD diet (he has UC), his options are often limited.
This is a delicious and versatile SCD friendly crepe. I added raspberries and honey to it to make it a decadent dessert!
You could also use it with savoury... ham and brie is my favourite.
