    A Brioche Hamburger Complete with Luxurious French Delights: Balsamic Relish & Garlic-Herbed Spread

    A Brioche Hamburger Complete with Luxurious French Delights: Balsamic Relish & Garlic-Herbed Spread

    The final episode of season 3 of The Simply Luxurious Kitchen is one I saved intentionally to conclude this year’s French Comfort themed recipes. Burgers, no matter what the protein, dressed with fresh vegetables and spread, topped with a buttery, toasted brioche bun are perhaps the definition of simple, comfort food with a dash of French finesse.

    A Classic (and Simple!) French Fresh or Frozen Berry Dessert: Clafoutis aux Cerises!

    A Classic (and Simple!) French Fresh or Frozen Berry Dessert: Clafoutis aux Cerises!

    Cherry trees in full blossom in April. Little did I realize the gift I had in my new garden with two dwarf cherry trees. Situated just outside my reading nook window, their beauty from spring through the summer and early fall gifts me with not only beauty but gorgeously delicious brilliant red cherries for making . . . you guessed it – Clafoutis aux Cerises or Cherry Clafoutis.

    Buckwheat Crêpes (Galettes) with Prosciutto, Gruyére & Egg

    Crêpes. Buckwheat crêpes (or galettes) are both delicate and hardy. Filling and satiating without being too much.

    Adding quality ingredients to fill the crêpe make it all the more special, and the good news is only a few ingredients are necessary. Yep, simple and delicious. One of the best ways to step into the kitchen and have fun creating something you cannot wait devour.

    Seared Scallops with Sherry Cream Sauce

    Seared Scallops with Sherry Cream Sauce

    In fewer than 20 minutes, this meal, like many shell-fish dishes is done and on the plate with a complementary sauce.

    Finding a high quality sherry wine elevates the entire flavor experience, so the next time you find yourself in the seafood section of the market and the fresh sea scallops catch your eye, grab a handful.

    Spaghetti alla Carbonara — My version of a classic comfort food favorite

    Spaghetti alla Carbonara — My version of a classic comfort food favorite

    Such a simple dish – eggs, cheese, bacon (pancetta) and pasta (plus a few extra ingredients – aromatics and a spice) to add lovely layers of flavor.

    While admittedly, not a French comfort recipe, it is a comfort recipe, and I would be remiss if I did not include in this season’s line-up of recipes as it has brough immense comfort, albeit fleeting, throughout the past twenty years, and usually always on a Friday.

    A Double Apple French Tart

    A Double Apple French Tart

    Episode #3, Season 3, The Simply Luxurious Kitchen

    Today’s recipe is one I stumbled upon making last fall while visiting my parents after an emotionally rough season for our family due to loss and health struggles. Looking for comfort, I looked to none other than Julia Child and found my favorite way to make a French apple tart – double the apples!

Superb!

I’ve been listening to Shannon’s podcast for years now. I was so excited to dig into her new show, and it’s been everything I expected! Intelligent, entertaining, and done with excellence. It’s so enjoyable to watch someone who really loves the food she is preparing. If you’re a foodie with a love of France, you’ll want to be sure to watch.

Living Simply Luxuriously!

This is a wonderful podcast. I’ve been following Shannon’s blog for years and it just keeps getting better. Now with this addition of cooking, I’m so looking forward to what the season has to offer. As a fellow Francophile, I love the French touch she puts into everything. Her topics on health, beauty, fashion, decorating and how to live a better life are truly inspiring. There is something for everyone. I don’t usually write reviews but really wanted to let everyone know what a treasure her blog posts are. Thank you, Shannon!
