Blueberry Flaugnarde

I saw this French recipe on Facebook made with cherries.  I tried it and loved the custard taste and cherry flavor.  I decided to try it with blueberries and take both the cherry and blueberry to a community party.  The blueberry pie didn't last long but I still had a little left over from the cherry one.  I highly recommend this pie made with either cherry or blueberries.  I can't wait to try different variations!


18 oz fresh blueberries, washed and set aside to dry*
2 Tbs. of butter, melted and set aside to cool
4 eggs
1 cup of milk
3/4 cups of flour
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of almond extract
Dust with powdered sugar


* substitute blueberries with 20 oz of clean and pitted cherries for the Cherry Clafoutis

Take a 9 inch pie pan and grease the bottom with the butter on bottom and all sides.
Sprinkle and coat the pan with the sugar.  Add the blueberries and make sure they are even within the pan.

In the meantime preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the eggs and milk together followed by the flour, salt and sugar.  I like to add extra vanilla and almond extract but if you don't just use 1/2 tsp.  Mix into the batter the melted butter.  The batter will appear to be runny but cooks to a custard texture.

Pour the batter into the pie pan.  Cook in the oven for approx. 40 minutes.  It will puff up and then subside.  You will know it is done when it is a golden brown.  Optional - dust with the powdered sugar or leave off. 

I liked this warm and cold.  It was a hit with everyone that tried it.  You can't go wrong serving this for dinner and at parties.  It is great at every meal even at breakfast!

Très bien!

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl Okay, I like to try different things, so I buy lots of food magazines for ideas! A very recent one this year 2023, Cooking Light magazine, had an assortment of different "power bowls" to make. I decided to try this one with chicken, but you can substitute any type of meat you would like in it, i.e. shredded beef, ground beef, and if you are daring, no meat substitutes! Well, that last one is not for me!  Below is the actual recipe I used. If you don't subscribe to Cooking Light, you are missing some great ideas of recipes for you and/or your family. When I saw this edition, I knew it was a game changer for me. I can take the recipe and modify it for the fussy eaters in my family and make it their own.  First, I made it "almost" like the recipe calls for to see what the results would be from everyone. My conclusion was, I loved it just the way it was, but not so with the others. So below is my suggestion on what to do so you don't

Morning Strawberry Protein Shake

Garden Strawberries So, I like strawberries, and it is the season for all of us back yard growers to start picking! I downsized my plot of plants, but I still have some to pick periodically as they ripen.  The local farms should be ready for the "you pick deals" from June - mid July now! There are quite a few growers in the PNW to choose from. A local favorite is the  Biringer Farm , you can check out their website for more information.  After, of course, the morning coffee, I will make my breakfast shake. It consists of one cup of unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened coconut milk, or unsweetened oat milk. Normally when watching calories, I will opt for almond or coconut milk. I also like at times to mix all three to make one full cup!  I will add one scoop of whey, my morning vitamin, and one cup of frozen strawberries. Sometimes I will add a frozen banana or frozen blueberries. My favorite is just using strawberries. I blend this for about a minute to make sure everything i

Cooking at Home During Quarantine

I like cooking, but I can't wait to be able to go out, sit at a table in a restaurant, order, eat, and enjoy family and friends. The only thing I won't like is the bill, but it will be so worth it. During this quarantine, if you have the funds and can help out your favorite local eateries, do so. They are struggling and take-out orders can help keep them in business.
