a little French bread and... Friday's favorite pin!

today, i am pretty much...over the top excited!
after work, Chrislyn and i are headed to a four hour
Exploring French Classic Cuisine cooking class.
the experience is my Mother's Day gift from Mr D. and our
Mother's Day gift to Chrislyn. 

.:: Auberge Edge of Seattle ::.

it's due time that i embrace my French heritage, in the kitchen.
i have many of you to thank for bringing me to the table... so to speak.   

our daughter Chrislyn is an amazing cook. she is always exploring ways to bring
a creative, healthy meal to her family's table. 
this Summer, we have enjoyed trips to the Saturday farmers markets
and much conversation about the seasonal
 farm fresh to table philosophy of cooking.
yesterday, she was up to her elbows in fresh peaches. she made

two kinds of jam and a healthy take on a peach crisp.

.:: Chrislyn's blog and the recipe ::.

she just finished this book...

.:: Karen's blog  ::.

i hope that Auberge will allow me to capture a few photographs at our
class this evening.  if so, i will share the experience in a post next week.

now for Friday's favorite pin.
