If you made an extra large batch, what do you think about freezing this, once complete? will it hold up?

Ellen Dye

I seriously know what's for dinner tonight! Thanks and happy dipping from West Virginia! Ellen


I once spent two weeks in China, and was surprised to find that towards the end I wanted a big Mac, so I can truly imagine how you might find that comforting if you'd been out of the U.S a long time.

The soup looks wonderful.


Lordy, I think yellow tomatoes are almost as hard to find around here as a real burrito. Viva La Cumbre!


My German friends thought I was insane for ordering french fries and a shake (after a year without McD's) with my cheeseburger. They kept saying "Ice cream with potatoes? You can't eat ice cream with potatoes!" I didn't have the heart to tell them that there was nothing vaguely resembling ice cream in a McD's "shake." Le Royale, anyone? Now, that's a tasty burger!


One of my favorites- roasted tomato soup. Guess what we had for dinner last night?

Ms. Glaze

Kimberlee – Freeze away! I think it would be great to freeze it. I would probably freeze the purée and then reheat and add stock as needed. That way there's not as much to store in the freezer.

Ellen Dye – Let me know how it works for you and if you have any additions ;-)

Kalyn – My brother lived in China too for a long time and when he came home and got off the plane the first thing he wanted was to go to Mac Donald's. Even though he could get that there, it just wasn't the same.

David – There's only one Mexican restaurant here that has the real deal. Have you tried Anahaucali in the 5th? By the way, the new Monoprix in the 5th carries yellow and black tomatoes aside from the regular stuff. It's quite a spectacular monoprix. It almost reminds me of Whole Foods (but not quite, of course)

SAS – Wow, a milkshake, there's a concept I haven't seen in awhile. Vivre le Royal!

Karina – Really? Did you make it!?!?!


It was absolutely wonderful and I didn't change a thing except for the tomatoes---no yellow ones to be found yesterday! We had it with a baby lettuce salad with buttermilk dressing and French bread. Thanks again for sharing all your wonderful recipes! Ellen

I made your roti de porc avec pommes et oignons last night, and added my own touch again -- this time a little fresh pineapple. That was really good.


Hey Amy!
I totally understand about the comfort food! It's been too long since we've talked. I actually got married 2 weeks ago in Italy and we just got back last night after a honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast and Burgundy. This morning I was totally craving Waffle House for some yummy american comfort food!! Sometimes hashbrowns scattered and covered really hit the spot. I hope all is well with you. Let's catch up soon! Love, Carrie


All dishes look very delicious! I am interested in the food culture of your country. And I support your site. If there is time, please come in my site. From Japan


Cool site edamame! Is there an english version?


p.s. do you have any purple sweet potatoes?


No matter how wonderful the food is when I travel, I'm always ready to come home to my own refrigerator and the little things I take for granted.


It seems delicious, greetings from Indonesia


Funny, I was just talking about a Super Burrito with my friend today. I plan on making some salsa this weekend and possibly make some kind of burrito or fajita with leftover pintade from school. Being from Cali, I understand. =)

Ms. Glaze

Ellen – oooo, I love the salad with buttermilk dressing idea. Finding buttermilk in France is challenging but not impossible.

Stu – That pork recipe is one of my favorite stand-bys because it's easy and tasty. I'll have to give the pineapple addition a shot next time.

Carrie – Oh major CONGRATULATIONS to you and my second favorite red head in the world (LOL). I am bummed that I didn't get to throw that shower for you like we talked about. Still wanna do it after the fact? Just a ladies day or something? Good for you for eloping in Italy. How romantic. All my love!!

Edmame – You're site looks great but unfortunately I can't understand a word of it. Thanks for dropping by!

Eileen – I absolutely agree. No doubt about it.

Marsudi – Wow, great site, and again, I can't understand a word. Thanks for you comment ;-)

Joan – I find that I can find fajitas which are really not Mexican but rather native to the Southwest in the three Mexican restaurants I know of in France. But, I can't find burritos unless I go to Indiana and they are truly disgusting there. Funny huh? A pintade super burrito sounds good to me.


Thanks for the pointer to a "real" Mexican restaurant, will give it a try. I inhale pico de gallo by the litre when I visit California.

For the margarita, it's easy: 2:1 ratio of good tequila to Cointreau (and not Grand Marnier), the juice of two fresh squeezed limes, all shaken over ice quickly and then served in a salt-rimmed glass.

N.B. best to have friends bring the good stuff from outside France; my usual is El Tesoro Platinum. Try Lavinia near Madeleine for a few alternatives.

Tomatoes have many properties and vitamin and if you eat it frequently is sure you will see more beautiful because the tomatoes contain antioxidant that help the skin to stay young longer. In fact i read a blog some days ago and i knew all the properties of the tomatoes. That is why i talk to bases.
