Baked Seafood Au Gratin
This was my Mom's favorite seafood recipe, she is now 88, I am 60 and this is my all time favorite seafood recipe also. I have had guests, who, when invited to dinner, specifically request this to be served.
French Beef Stew
This is a very easy, hearty French beef stew that's a meal in itself. Serve with warm crusty French bread, if desired.
Rice with Herbes de Provence
This is a fragrant, yummy rice. It is great with chicken and green beans! This is very easy to make. Substitute a mixture of thyme, marjoram, savory, and rosemary for dried herbes de Provence.
Classic Chicken Cordon Bleu
Tender chicken stuffed with ham and Swiss, topped with a breaded coating.
For a gourmet meal this is very easy to prepare. Leftovers reheat well the next day too! Instead of using fresh shrimp like the recipe originally called (took too long the first time I did it) we now use frozen, raw, peeled and it tastes the exact same, but with 1/4 of the time! This is great over rice and served with French bread.
Chicken Gruyere with Sauteed Mushrooms
Chicken breasts are browned in butter, then baked with mushrooms, onion, and white wine. The finishing touch is an exquisite layer of melted Gruyere cheese on the top. If you enjoy rich French cooking then you will love this recipe. Serve hot over rice.
