Baguette sandwiches are my new favorite thing!  There is something about a baguette that makes you feel like you are in a French café, sipping cappuccino, and enjoying local fare.  They are crisp on the outside and soft on the inside and make for a great sandwich.   Prosciutto & Arugula Baguette Sandwiches make the perfect meal.  The prosciutto is salty, the cheese is sharp, and the arugula adds some fresh flavor.  Pair it with some mustard or mayonnaise and jam, and you are set! The recipe can be found here. Start by making the sandwich spread.  In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and mustard.  This gives the sandwich a spicy and tangy taste.  You can use only mayonnaise or only mustard or neither, but I like the flavor of both combined. Next, slice the baguette in half.  Each half will make one sandwich.  Or you can slice … Continue reading

The recipe can be found here. Start by softening the cream cheese.  You can do this by letting the cream cheese sit on the counter for … Continue reading

French Onion Soup has always been one of my favorite soups.  Traditional French Onion soup is a soup based on meat stock and onions, served with croutons or bread and grated cheese on top.  Usually beef stock is used but my recipe calls for chicken stock.  The reason I use stock is it creates a slightly thicker liquid as opposed to broth, and the chicken stock yields better flavor in this dish (in my opinion). This is by far the best French Onion Soup I have had!  It’s worth the time spent caramelizing the onions to have the perfect flavor.  I can’t begin to describe how yummy this soup is…I literally have no words because I can’t stop eating the soup long enough to talk…so let me describe how to make it instead 🙂 The recipe can be found here. Start by slicing the onions.  The recipe calls for 8 … Continue reading
