A note from our favorite cookbook author!

Can it really be over 6 years and so many hundreds of recipes ago that I wrote to tell Laurie and all you wonderful bakers how excited I was that you were planning to work your way through Baking From My Home To Yours?
Well, guess what? As you start on Baking Chez Moi, I’m just as excited. You never fail to delight me and I can’t wait to see what you do with my recipes chez you.
Merci – lots – for being so enthusiastic and so game. As I collected and created these recipes, I was surprised many times and happy every time. I hope it will be the same for you.
“Bake on,” as Laurie says.
Sweet wishes, xoxo Dorie

New look(s)

Hi friends.  We’re playing around with a fresh, new look for the blog.  So don’t be surprised if you see a number of different versions of layout and photos.  The Rules have also been updated to reflect the new book.  Bake on!

Baking Chez Moi November Recipes

Hopefully you’ve pre-ordered your book, and it will be delivered to you in plenty of time to start baking with us in November.  Just in case, however, the first chosen recipe is one that you can find online.  Remember, we post the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month (11/11 and 11/25 next month)  You can always post after those dates as well.  We’ll start using the nomination system once everyone has a book in November.

Without further ado – here are the recipes!

November 11 - Palets de Dames, pp 272 – 274 (this link from Amazon is for pre-orders and has the recipe download)

November 25 – Cranberry Crackle Tart pp 135-137

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.

Baking-Chez-Moi_hres

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!  (http://www.hmhco.com/shop/books/Baking-Chez-Moi/9780547724249)

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

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.
