Lemon Blueberry Clafoutis

So I have made a clafoutis here on Food Doodles before, but this months column in our local paper was on eggs and I could not get a clafoutis out of my mind, so here it is!  I mixed things up by using blueberries this time.  I love blueberries so much.  They’re my favorite berry, […]

Blue Plum Crisp

These are one of my favorite fall fruits and often a misunderstood one.  These are blue plums.  I’ve also heard of them being called Italian blue plums or prune plums.  We usually dry some, and technically make prunes, but these are nothing like any prunes I’ve ever had before so we usually just refer to […]

First of all, I wanted to start off by saying thank you to everyone for your support on my last post.  My posting has obviously slowed down a lot more than I thought it would, but again, I don’t plan to be gone for too long – although I’m sure it will still be a […]

Before I go any further, I […]

I’ve read that “flaugnarde” is the proper way to refer to this, although I’m not 100% sure(correct me if I’m wrong!) and I can only guess at how to say flaugnarde so I do prefer calling it a clafoutis which is much easier to say.  This is one of my favorite local recipes because I […]

Cherry Almond Granola

I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, but we live in a place that produces a variety of different fruits and one of the major ones is cherries.  My parents even live on a cherry orchard so usually we get some cherries to freeze and dry and just to enjoy.  So all year long I have […]

Whole Wheat Spinach “Monster” Pasta

I was so excited a couple weeks ago because I finally bought myself a pasta roller.  They actually aren’t that big of a deal, I got mine(which seems to be fairly good quality) for about $30.  It is already money well spent now that I don’t have to consider homemade pasta as a special treat, […]
