    Happy New Year!

    I will be making my go-to beef daube again.

    Happy New Year! Can’t wait to see what recipes are ahead in 2011! Happy cooking, all.

    Made the delicious cocktail nuts (finally!) Happy New Year!

    I missed last week, but made the last two December recipes this week. LOVED the speculoos. The beef daube was OK, but that’s me not the recipe.

    I made the spiced carrots for the final week. Delicious! I could see playing with this recipe, altering the spices and the levels of sweetness/spiciness. The possibilities are endless.

    Ending (and starting) the year on a sweet note with speculoos!

    Happy New Year everyone. This is absolutely the best project I started in 2010 hands down!

    Happy New Year to all. I’m a newby to this as I gave myself Around My French Table for Christmas.

    I made the Chard stuffed Pork loin for our Christmas Eve dinner and enjoyed it except for the fact that no one can tell me that the pork hadn’t been frozen. Lost a lot of juice in cooking and while resting.

    Looking forward to catching up.

      Welcome! You will love the book, and you’ll love reading everyone’s write ups on the recipes.

    • KarenP December 31, 2010 at 1:17 PM #

      I just got the book for Christmas too, and I can’t wait to get started. I’m making one of the vinaigrettes tonight, but otherwise haven’t tried any of the recipes yet.

      I think you’ll have so much fun with this. Dorie’s recipes are terrific, and I have to say, the people that are participating are wonderful!! So much fun to cook “together”!

    • josefa December 31, 2010 at 9:47 PM #

      I made the Chard stuffed Pork Loin, too, for Christmas Eve dinner! You will love the cookbook. It is one of my go-to cookbooks.

    • pei cook January 1, 2011 at 10:59 AM #

      The book was on my Christmas list and Santa came through. What a guy!
      I am looking forward to cooking my way through the book..Since I retired, I am more cooking obsessed than ever. Happy New Year to all of you.

    • Glennis-CBWA January 2, 2011 at 12:13 AM #

      Welcome! The recipes are really easy to follow…usually common ingredients as well! And the results..oh my! All have been good, at least one a month has been outstanding! Can’t ask for better! Enjoy!!

    • Cher January 2, 2011 at 5:57 PM #

      Welcome to everyone who received this book as a most excellent Christmas present! We look forward to seeing your new creations!

  9. PheMom December 31, 2010 at 10:11 AM #

    Happy New Year! I made the cocktail nuts – but did cinnamon and sugar only with pecans. I’m looking forward to cooking more with you all in 2011!

  10. Anne-Marie December 31, 2010 at 10:28 AM #

    Happy New Year, mes amis! I look forward to French Fridays and all of you every week. See you in 2011!!

    M. Jacques’ Armagnac Chicken–off menu, I know, but oh so deeee-licious!!

  12. Kristin December 31, 2010 at 10:45 AM #

    I made the speculoos. Huge hit.

    Happy New Year!

      Sounds like your place is the place to be on holidays – a snow bar!!!

      Happy New Year.

  13. frolickingnightowl December 31, 2010 at 10:50 AM #

    We made the Potato & Leek soup at our house. Perfect for a very cold day that included snow in some parts of the Phoenix area! Happy New Years to all!!

  14. lolo13 December 31, 2010 at 11:00 AM #

    The speculoos… sweet holiday traditions!

  15. Seattlepastrygirl December 31, 2010 at 11:08 AM #

    Happy New Year everyone ! The Potato leek soup was perfect for fighting the freezing cold that has hit Seattle.

  16. chocolatechic December 31, 2010 at 11:09 AM #

    Happy New Year.

    I made Beef Daube

  17. StephIrey December 31, 2010 at 11:15 AM #

    A perfect side dish for New Year’s…the spiced carrots are a great way to end and start the year. Happy New Year everyone!

  18. KY December 31, 2010 at 11:53 AM #

  21. Jessica of My Baking Heart December 31, 2010 at 1:19 PM #

    Just like my grandmother’s carrots!

    Happy New Year, y’all! :)

  22. Judy22 December 31, 2010 at 2:13 PM #

    Speculoos are in the house.

    Looking forward to January!

  23. kudoskitchen December 31, 2010 at 3:30 PM #

    Happy New Year!!! May your year ahead be a tasty and good as these Spiced-Butter Glazed Carrots!

  24. MsHobby December 31, 2010 at 3:39 PM #

    My first FFwD! Funny that it is the last Friday of 2010!

  25. candygirl December 31, 2010 at 4:39 PM #

    Loved these carrots! Happy New Year!

  26. gigi December 31, 2010 at 5:02 PM #

    I only made one recipe this month! I made Specaloos. They were fun and easy to make, although I’m not sure I would make them again. I loved eating the raw dough, nice and ginger-spicy!

  27. Shef December 31, 2010 at 6:39 PM #

    I made the sweet and spicy nuts with a slightly Indian twist (using recommendations in the side bar of the recipe). They were great!

  28. athomeandawaywithme December 31, 2010 at 8:19 PM #

    Finally, my first French Friday with Dorie! I bought myself the book a month ago but haven’t been able to dive in until the holidays. I made the potato leek soup as an accompaniment to my xmas pork loin roast. Delicious!

    We met our December quota as of last week- this week we are treating everyone to our own “Feast of Seven Fishes” tradition. We look forward to a new year and the January recipes. Happy 2011 all !

    PS- I am going back to redo the carrots. It was not a hit at my house and judging from all the other comments…I need to try this again…this is why I love this blog :) Tricia

  30. Allison December 31, 2010 at 9:32 PM #

    Finally made last week’s recipe of Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots. Even though I screwed it up, they were still good.

  31. josefa December 31, 2010 at 9:51 PM #

    Mmmm speculoos…you can pop a whole one in your mouth and crunch away…

    Happy New Years!

  32. Cheryl December 31, 2010 at 10:58 PM #

    My first week! My pictures aren’t posting right now (stupid Blogger, not just me) but I’ll put them up soon.

    Loved the carrots…

  33. nancyo December 31, 2010 at 11:16 PM #

    I made the nuts (several times)!

  34. janella January 1, 2011 at 12:51 AM #

    I made the speculoos and the nuts. Both yummy… couldn’t stop eating the nuts. Completely addictive.

  35. onewetfoot January 1, 2011 at 4:41 AM #

    Happy New Year everyone! Here’s my link for the beef daube:

  36. Lola's Kitchen January 1, 2011 at 11:25 AM #

    Happy New Year! We’re traveling so posting has been a bit difficult….my in laws have dial up! Anyone else unable to find cardamom pods?

  37. Dena January 2, 2011 at 12:42 AM #

    Have had the book for about 2 months – can’t wait to get started!

  38. Waverly @ January 2, 2011 at 2:56 PM #

    I enjoyed the December recipes.
    Note: Wholefoods carries cardamon pods in the bulk section of it’s spices.
    Here is my post with all of the photos:
