Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Shallots, Roasted Garlic, and Fried Sage

These mashed potatoes are brought up to the next level by adding roasted garlic and caramelized shallots.  Fresh chopped sage adds a wonderful holiday touch.  Don’t be afraid of the butter and cream.  That’s what gives mashed potatoes most of it’s flavor.  Plus, if you are making this for a holiday dish, why not indulge a bit.

Casserole-roasted Chicken with Bacon, Onions and Potatoes

Casserole-roasted Chicken with Bacon, Onions and Potatoes

Today is Julia Child’s birthday.  So, in celebration of Julia’s birthday my friend and I cooked a complete dinner from Mastering the Art of French Cooking.  Each of us received a copy of the cookbook for Christmas last year, but neither of us had cooked from it yet, and it was definitely time to do so.  We chose three recipes, an entrée, a vegetable, and a dessert and prepared them exactly as Julia instructed.  The meal was fantastic and I have a feeling I will be getting requests for this dinner again very soon, as well as encouragement to continue trying recipes from Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
