  • Basic Machine French Bread
    This is my winner with Tammiev and our friends. This recipe is for a 2 pound loaf and has never failed me. I think it is the lack of oil and sugar that they like in this one.

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu II
    "'Cordon Bleu' is a French term, literally translated as 'blue ribbon', that originally referred to an award for culinary excellence given to women cooks! The term can now apply to any superior cook (yes, men too), and also to this dish (chicken, ham and Swiss cheese slices, breaded and sauteed). This yummy version adds paprika and a creamy white wine sauce worthy of its own blue ribbon. Two blue ribbon tastes in wedded bliss -- Chicken Cordon Bleu II!"

  • Crème Brûlée French Toast

    Editor's Note: This recipe was requested by a Gourmet reader who stayed at the Inn at Sunrise Point in Camden, Maine, and wrote: \"Innkeepers Rich and Jackie Diehl's signature breakfast dish was a fabulous cr\u00E9me br\u00FBl\u00E9e French toast, which we would love to make at home.\"

    \r\n\r\n

    Although the Diehls use large slices from a round loaf of bread and remove the crust, we also tried the recipe with a baguette, leaving the crust on, and found it just as delicious. At La Maison, challah is often the bread of choice.

    I got this basic recipe from another site but changed it a little for my family. The original recipe called for orange juice as the liquid instead of milk. I also added the vanilla as we think it gives it a nice flavor.
