A French Dinner!

 I have two sisters Jennifer and Robbie. We all really like to cook and prepare special meals for our families. We also like to get together along with our husbands about every month or so at one of our homes for food, fellowship and fun! The other night it was my sister Jennifer and brother-in-law Mark's turn to host everyone for dinner. Jennifer prepared Beef Bourguignon using Julia Child's recipe and it was absolutely delicious! 
For dessert, she made Creme Brulee!
Jennifer even used her mini blow torch to caramelize the sugar! I must say, Robbie and I were quite impressed!
It was so yummy!
Jennifer used Julia's recipe for the dessert, as well. She has been cooking her way through Julia Child's cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking," kind of like the movie "Julie and Julia"! Here is the recipe for Creme Brulee!

 I must say... Jennifer has now raised the bar for Robbie and myself on our next dinner get togethers!

Oh-Darn those relatives that put you you "on guard" to be "the best presenter". We have a group that always tries to outdo each it is fun to see what each one comes up with. Creme Brulee is especially impressive! What fun that you can get together with your sisters so often. xo Diana

Everything looks great! I am not a great cook, so I have great admiration for those who can do it so well.

What fun you must have with your sisters!
