    I found out that having some mussels in the kitchen never hurt, and could even be fun and delicious! Loved this recipe :).

      I can’t seem to leave a comment on your blog today, but your food looks gorgeous and delicious! (as usual!)

        Just saw this…. Thanks so much Candy!

    Loved this, both with and without pasta! Come for the mussels, stay for dessert. ;-)

    These were very delicious, but I wasn’t so fond of the grooming they required…

    I made this with pasta, but I can’t wait to try it as a dipping sauce!

    Fantastic – we both loved this one !

    • Candy February 17, 2012 at 12:19 PM #

      Apparently blogspot doesn’t like my iPad today.

      So happy that you both enjoyed this. Both of your dishes look delicious!!

      cant leave a comment on your blog. will you allow anonymous commenters? it seems to be the only way i can comment on blogspot blogs…

      here you are!
      Awww, its hard to try something you were turned off of – you can always go to the doc and get tested for seafood allergies, or just try one again sometime! I’m very allergic to clams but apparently I really loved them when I was younger when we realized what was going on.
      I bet it was a great treat for your sons then! I bet you make it again soon! :)

    This was a big hit! Looking forward to trying again with pasta.

  7. acookingmizer February 17, 2012 at 8:31 AM #

    absolutely, utterly delicious and fabulous… I can’t say we will wait too long before we make it again! Maybe into a nice pasta dish? … :)

    A wonderful Valentine’s Day meal….so delicious!

    My last FFwD entry before a month-long hiatus. Look forward to cooking with all of you in April!

  10. Candy February 17, 2012 at 9:01 AM #

    pretty tasty dish. I think it would be great with pasta too.

  11. betsyp February 17, 2012 at 9:02 AM #

    Definitely my favorite recipe so far this month. We enjoyed it both without and then with pasta. Can’t wait to eat the last of it for lunch today. Happy Friday everyone.

    I love mussels so this was an easy win in my house.

  13. Newfinmysoup February 17, 2012 at 9:55 AM #

    Enjoyed this on a rainy Valentine’s evening. Very nice with the chorizo, but I didn’t care for the canned tomatoes so much.

  14. Miss Kris Kitchen February 17, 2012 at 10:41 AM #

    I’m interested to see what you all have done. I caught up on Creme Brulee…now I’ll need to catch up on today’s dish. The Brulee is elegant and fun.

    I have always loved mussels. Especially when I’m in the South of France. But using Dorie’s guidance, I created a little SoF ambiance here in Cambria, California, where I am spending the Winter. Making marvelous moules. Anxious to hear from you.

  16. AmyA February 17, 2012 at 10:56 AM #

    Awesome flavor combo and once you make it, easy to go freestyle. Fab!

    This was a GREAT first FFwD recipe – delicious Valentine’s dinner

    • acookingmizer February 17, 2012 at 1:03 PM #

      Welcome to the group! :) My husband and I enjoyed this one for our Valentine’s day dinner also and we just dipped into a shared deep bowl so it was a great little romantic dinner!

      sorry, I can’t leave comments on blogspot lately and you havent allowed anonymous commenters so im leaving my comment for you here. :)

    • Maya February 21, 2012 at 8:13 PM #

      Welcome to FFWD, Heather! Hope you’ll join us again next week (well, it’s this week now!). :)

    • Candy February 22, 2012 at 11:24 AM #

      So happy that you’ve joined us and that you loved the dish!! Can’t seem to leave a comment on your blog, but your photos looked great, and it all looked so yummy!!

  18. SisBoom February 17, 2012 at 11:10 AM #

    What a great recipe to return to the Dorie fold with! I loved it!

    • Candy February 22, 2012 at 11:30 AM #

      blogger hates me, but I loved your post! Yes, bread. And now I’m ready to make this again, yours looks so good!

  19. lizzydo February 17, 2012 at 11:57 AM #

    This is one of my top 2 favorite dishes from AMFT…amazing!!!

  20. tammycirceo February 17, 2012 at 12:22 PM #

    I love mussels and this recipe was great. I think I still prefer Moules Mariniere, but I wouldn’t be upset if I had to eat this again. ;)

  21. Terra February 17, 2012 at 12:49 PM #

    My favorite sausage maker was out of chorizo so I am taking the dish to Portugal with linguica. This is a dish I dream of.

  22. laurcl February 17, 2012 at 1:01 PM # – having it now for lunch!

  23. Miss Blossom February 17, 2012 at 2:12 PM #

    A great dish, went together so easily. Enjoyed by all…in the various forms!

    I might not get to read posts until the weekend, its Sous Chef’s birthday today, and Sasha the Wonder Dog had surgery yesterday. Looking forward to reading what everyone did this week!

    Happy French Friday!

  25. KarenP February 17, 2012 at 3:08 PM #

    I had to make this for myself since I’m the only one in the house who will eat mussels, but I loved it!

  26. Robin February 17, 2012 at 6:22 PM #

    Mussels for him, crab for me, delicious sauce!

  27. pamkaren February 17, 2012 at 8:47 PM #

    I wasn’t sure about this, but it turned out delicious.

  28. Erin E February 17, 2012 at 8:49 PM #

    Looked and smelled beautiful, will have to make it again!

  29. tastymayhem February 17, 2012 at 9:15 PM #

    MMMM is for Mussel Love. Made it Sunday but couldn’t find a moment to blog!

  30. Jacquelyn February 17, 2012 at 10:08 PM #

    Fave for my husband- the jury’s still out for me!!

  31. food,familyandvino February 17, 2012 at 11:22 PM #

    I wanted to make homemade pasta for this to soak up the delish sauce but…time was not on my side today :(

    Here’s my link, from a very Dorie day:

    I have to say that this is going to become a favourite.

  33. Marie February 18, 2012 at 5:46 PM #
    I’m not an expert with mussels, but I liked this so much that I may have to become one.

  34. the_frilly_apron February 18, 2012 at 8:43 PM #

    Being from the Canadian Maritimes, mussels are a staple around here. This is the first time we’ve tried them with chorizo, and they were scrumptious.

  35. jora February 19, 2012 at 3:03 PM #

    My post actually went up on time, but I was in the Bahamas so I couldn’t post my link. I liked the recipe, but don’t love mussels….

  36. ApronThyme February 19, 2012 at 4:23 PM #

    Two out of three tasters thought this was delicous. Prior to this I hadn’t ever met a mussel! With or without a beard! Yikes.
