Baking Chez Moi

We’re scurrying around firming up details and plans.  For now, here’s what you need to know to bake along:  We’ll be baking two recipes per month.  We’ll nominate/choose recipes the previous month (i.e. – nominate recipes in November that we’ll bake in December).  We post on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month.  We ask that you do not post the recipe on your blog.   There is NO sign-up and no minimums to be a member.  Bake and post when you can.  If you have any questions you can send us an email at tuesdayswithdorie at gmail dot com.

The book is being published October 28.  Make sure you pre-order to get yours on time!

Exciting news!

Dear Fans of Dorie,

We have some very exciting news to share with you!  On October 28, Houghton Mifflin will release Dorie’s newest book, Baking Chez Moi.  Starting November 11, we’ll be baking along!  This is a wonderful new book filled with sweet treats for all occasions.


As in the past, twice a month we’ll be baking a recipe from the book.  Recipes are nominated, the names and page numbers are posted, and on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, you’ll blog about what you’ve baked.  We’ll continue to have a link post, a Tuesday Chatter post, and a Q & A post.  There are no registrations, minimums, or rules.  We only ask that you don’t post the recipe.  We want to support Dorie and have as many people as possible purchase her book.

Pre-orders are available.  Please follow the link to order yours!  (

As an added bonus, we’ve been given some special goodies to give away.  Details to follow, so make sure you check back here often!

We’re very much looking forward to Baking Chez Moi and hope you are as excited as we are.

Bake on,

Laurie, Jules, and Steph

Tuesday Chatter

Did you like the veggie tart? Tell us why or why not. Bring it!

July recipes!

There are three Tuesdays in July. We’ll be posting on the 2nd and 16th and leave the 30th as a rewind. What would you like to bake next month? One savory and one sweet please! As always, page numbers are very helpful.

On a personal side note: My kitchen is being gutted on the 26th, and it won’t be completed until some time in September. (fingers crossed!) So while I haven’t been baking along much, now I won’t be able to. I’ll be jealously and vicariously baking through all of you! — Jules

So here it is…

We’re going to try going host-less for a while.  I’m still going to put up a LYL page as well as Tuesday Chatter.  If you have a particularly lovely photo, please e-mail it to our account, and I’ll try to get it up with the LYL.  We’ll see how the experiment goes.

Tuesday Chatter

How did yours turn out? Is this a go-to? Was it easy or hard? Do tell!

LYL: Rustic Potato Loaves

Which my daughter misread as Rusty Potato Lovers. (I’ll try to scan the picture that she drew…) How did you read it?

Dawn at Simply Sweet has the recipe! And she also baked this gorgeousness.


LYL: Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

These beauties were baked by Peggy of Galettista

The first hosts of 2013. Yow.

January 8, 2013 – Pizza with Onion Confit on page 159 will be hosted by Paul of The Boy Can Bake

January 22, 2013 – French Apple Tart on pages 379-381 will be hosted by Gaye of Laws of the Kitchen

Looking forward to them both!

To all who celebrate… Merry Christmas!

I hope the holiday is wonderful, joyous, and filled with all of the things you like. (Any Dorie recipes on people’s tables this year?)

And to those of us who don’t celebrate, have a wonderful day off.
