Allons Enfants...

Joyeux Quatorze Juillet, Mamans!

Today is Bastille Day, a sort of French Independence Day. While not the same as our 4th of July, the two are often compared and, for our purposes, that'll do just fine.

So, break out the champagne and spread un peu d'amour. And maybe try some of these delicious French recipes.

Remember Mama's Quiche Lorraine? Tried and true, Quiche Lorraine is as French as the day is long. Serve with a green salad and a gentle Sancerre. C'est si bon!

What's more French than soup a l'onion? Serve with a baguette and a Cote du Rhone. Magnifique!

And what about crepes? We Americans love crepes! You can fill these yummy pastry shells with just about anything.

So, here's to liberte, egalite, fraternite! Bon Appetit!
