My last post with the French Fridays with Dorie group was back in April, a good 6 months ago.
I haven’t been part of the group for a long time however I have regularly ‘watched’ the progress of the group and enjoyed reading what everyone has been up to!
(Does that sound creepy? I can hear my daughter singing out “stalker”!)
When I read that the book will be completed in a matter of months, I knew I’d kick myself if I didn’t return to the group!
And now I’m kicking myself for not returning sooner!
It was fun taking part in this week’s recipe.
It was interesting watching the kids change their attitude as soon as they heard this was a French Fridays with Dorie recipe. Despite the gap in time, they understood they would be trying something new and their feedback would be sought.
I forgot how much the weekly recipes had become a family affair and everyone was excited to see them return.
Turns out I wasn’t the only one who missed the French Friday’s with Dorie group!
The kids and my husband loved this week’s recipe!
I added a scoop of mashed potatoes under the fish to make it a heartier meal.
I also used Blue Eye Cod for the fish, it has a mild and delicate taste that the kids enjoy.
I am looking forward to taking a more active (and less ‘stalkerish’) part in this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe of the week 🙂

Like your addition of mash beneath the fish, lovely colors! The two of us enjoyed our fish with baked pumpkin!

Glad you liked this one – it was good.

Welcome back! I love that your FFwD are a family affair. I’m happy if I can get someone besides me to even taste the dish. Thank goodness this one was a winner 🙂

Mashed potatoes would have changed my outlook towards this recipe! There were just too many carrots on my plate for my liking. 🙂

So happy to see you back. You were missed!
Mmmm – mashed potatoes. Grand idea. I didn’t mind the carrots, but the carrot juice kind of threw me for a loop.

My kids love cod too… great substitute. Hope to see more of you.

Great substitution with the cod – glad to see you back! I’m getting back in the FFWD routine too. Fun to have meals, cooking and FFWD as a family affair!

So good to see you back! This was a great recipe to return on. I enjoyed the dish as it was, but I bet mashed potatoes would have made it even better. Next time.

Your dish looks amazing! (as does the family!!) I thought that this was delicious (I didn’t get a post done, just a photo on facebook). I served mine with rice because that was so much easier to pull together, but I’m sure the potatoes would have been perfect! So happy that you and your family enjoyed this! And welcome back!!!

I love the name of your blog. We enjoyed this one too. French Fridays is also a family affair in my house. I think you left the group just as I started.

SANYA!!!! So nice to see you this week. I love the family shot. We enjoyed this one too. I will add the mashed potatoes next time because that looks just perfect. Welcome back! I’ve missed you.

Welcome back ! I had hoped that you would join back in before we completed the book. Nana and I have thought of you fondly. So fun to see that your taste-testers are back on board as well – and even willing to share the photo (how fun). And yes, your fish looked just lovely. Wish I had added the mashed potatoes as well – great idea.

Welcome back! I also served mashed potatoes with mine! It was a perfect accompaniment to this wonderful dish! Yours looks perfectly mouthwatering! Glad it was a hit with your taste testers!

Stumbled on your blog. Will try this one especially with the mashed potatoes. This looks nutrient packed yet light, just what I look for these days. Check out my blog –memoirs from France. Plus carrot is an antioxidant, so, all good 🙂
