    Last week I was so occupied with making edible holiday gifts I barely had time to cook from AMFT! Luckily, the glazed carrots were easy. Tempting to eat the whole batch for breakfast!

      My poor tech support person (AKA Christmas Nibbler) has finally fixed an error that has been plaguing my blog. It should be working now. If you are having trouble leaving a comment, please leave a reply here. Thanks.

    Holiday fun in the kitchen with Speculoos and Sweet and Spice Cocktail Nuts. Both are fabulous recipes that will go into my permanent file! Also great for Christmas gifts.

  22. eater111 December 17, 2010 at 3:00 PM #

    Here is my link to Leek and Potato soup

  23. frolickingnightowl December 17, 2010 at 3:41 PM #

    Since you asked … haven’t started a menu and haven’t done a single bit of shopping. Too hard to help Santa with three observant littles ones always with me … maybe it’s time to get a babysitter.

    The carrots were a hit at our house!

  24. franklyentertaining December 17, 2010 at 3:44 PM #

    Made the Potato Soup. Absolutely delicious!

  25. Anne-Marie December 17, 2010 at 3:57 PM #

    I made the leek-potato soup and the beef daube. Both were delicious! I feel like I’m on a roll!!

  26. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite December 17, 2010 at 4:58 PM #

    Beef daube!

  27. gaaarp December 17, 2010 at 5:23 PM #

    Leek and Potato Soup. It may not be overly photogenic, but it tastes awesome!!

  28. Cakelaw December 17, 2010 at 5:27 PM #

    I made the nuts – these are devine:

  29. cdcooks December 17, 2010 at 5:33 PM #

    Speculoos for me this week. And maybe every week after this! Loved them!

  30. Jessica December 17, 2010 at 5:35 PM #

    I need new chili and cayenne, but other than that…yum!

  31. teaandscones December 17, 2010 at 5:46 PM #

    Perfect weather for Potato Soup – LAST week!!!

  32. Kristin December 17, 2010 at 6:17 PM #

    Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts. Yummy…

  33. popsiclesandsandyfeet December 17, 2010 at 6:28 PM #

    Potato Leek Soup….good on a cold wintry day.

  34. Candy December 17, 2010 at 6:31 PM #

    odd that on a day-off I’m behind (again)!
    I made speculoos, and another kind of cookie, too!

    • Candy December 17, 2010 at 6:39 PM #

      Oh, and to be honest, no shopping, though I’m pretty sure the basics of the Christmas menu… but which extra thing to add…??

  35. tammycirceo December 17, 2010 at 8:10 PM #

    We tried Dorie’s version of a staple at our house: Leek and Potato Soup. It was very good!

  36. tricia December 17, 2010 at 9:38 PM #

    Nana gets extra credit points for baking this week. She tackled not only the Speculoos (which we found out had been the exact lovely little cookies we kept getting served with our coffee in Paris….) but could not avoid the siren of the Breton cookies at this time of year. Breton cake had been a holiday family favorite so she put Dorie’s recipe on the Christmas menu and it did not disappoint.

  37. betsyp December 17, 2010 at 10:26 PM #

    Cocktail nuts for me… A perfect match for my lack of free time this week.

  38. maryeats December 17, 2010 at 11:32 PM #

    my go-to beef daube meets the art of food photography

    Nothing up my Sleeve

  39. Aubepine December 18, 2010 at 12:41 AM #

    I made the Sweet & Salty nuts. They were terrific holiday gifts. The first batch was a double batch; the next will be a triple batch.

  40. Bakeawaywithme December 18, 2010 at 9:28 AM #

    Sorry I’m leaving this posting on a saturday but I hosted a Christmas party last night and didn’t think I’d be posting at all! Loved the nuts..they were a big hit at my party!

    Leek and Potato Soup on a cold winter day!

  42. marocmama December 18, 2010 at 9:50 AM #

    Go To Beef Daube – the nonpork/non-alcohol version!

  43. Marie December 18, 2010 at 1:52 PM #

    Always nice to have a good carrot recipe in your repertoire.

  44. gingerbreadbagels December 18, 2010 at 4:51 PM #

    Sorry I’m a little late! I’ve had a busy week with the holidays coming up! I made the soup and topped it with chives and parmesan.

  45. autumnwater December 18, 2010 at 10:45 PM #

    Late again. But better late than never.
    Beef Daube this week…

  46. Lana December 19, 2010 at 1:20 AM #

    I fought mightily and brought back my muse. I made the Sweet and Spicy nuts, which disappeared in a second! I made sure to separate them one by one, and it was so worth it!
    I cannot tell you how happy I am to have joined this group!

  47. Ana December 19, 2010 at 3:02 AM #

    Here at Sweet Almond Tree, we made Leek and Potato Soup. It was a good choice for a snowy day!

  48. Good Bite In December 19, 2010 at 9:52 AM #

    I am back with French Fridays! Yay!

    After a bit of a holiday in Australia I’m back in snow covered England and let me tell you Dorie’s Beef Daube really hit the spot!


  49. Glennis-CBWA December 19, 2010 at 4:11 PM #

    I’m doing good to be catching up at last! I started with the Potato Leek Soup and on we go from here!

  50. eater111 December 19, 2010 at 7:22 PM #

    I hope it’s ok to leave a link to a preparation of last month’s recipe. (everyone seems to be catching up anyway) Please read down the page for Marie-Helenes cake.

  51. Patti December 19, 2010 at 9:25 PM #

    As with others, catching up and an extra treat of World Peace cookies!

  52. the_frilly_apron December 19, 2010 at 9:43 PM #

    These are just so perfect for the holidays. Delicious spiced nuts to share.

  53. onewetfoot December 20, 2010 at 2:39 AM #

  59. Tabitha December 21, 2010 at 9:39 PM #

    Yahoo! Spicy Nuts. Or is it Sweet and Spicy Nuts? Whatever it is, they were salty, spicy and sweet. Another success…

    I took the easy way out this week.

    And they are so tasty!!

  62. Candy December 29, 2010 at 8:02 PM #

    A request?…

    Would you kindly let us know what our recipes are/order is – this weekend (Friday, even)? It’s so much easier if I know the weekend prior, so that I can plan… and maybe even make my recipe when I have a bit more time.


    (fyi, this has been a huge amount of fun!!)

  63. jen0985 December 31, 2010 at 1:10 AM #
