Madeleines on Monday

What then on Tuesday?

I've been gifted with a Madeleine pan as well as a wonderful handmade cookbook so I can be a boulanger :)

The little book has the cutest graphics! I don't think I could draw a whisk whisking if I tried! Impressive, Jojo :) !

Commercy is in the Lorraine region of France. 
I have ancestors from there and so I feel very close to them today...eating their food and all :) 

Up cloche and personal :) 
Don't they look tasty? 
Thank you Jojo for ma cadeaux and I have read about Marcel Proust have educated me today!

Oh man, you're making me want to eat madeleines & read Proust. I love madeleines. Every time I've been to France, I've bought madeleines & macarons. Swan's Way & À La Recherche Du Temps Perdu are in my library, but I have never read them ... need to do that.

Guess I'm going to have to get out the madeleine pan and do some baking today (I have some French butter in the fridge I've been saving for something special because it was so expensive - maybe madeleines are just the thing for it)!

Your madeleines are marvellous! Like the french ones!!!! and I love your cloche!!!!
I am very hungry now :-P I need some madeleines...

> Oh yes Sue your butter should be great for Madeleines :-)

Madeleines! We have a madeleine pan at home, but I've NEVER used it! Shame shame shame, I know. lol So you've roots in Commercy... hubby's roots are in LaRochelle... let's google-map them and see if you were neighbors... wouldn't that be a hoot!

Cape Cod Rambling Rose said...

lol - I just googled them... they are almost as far apart as you could get!

I KNOW if we lived any closer there would be trouble... we'd be fast friends and get into some mischief... on a daily basis! lol

see you there! said...

Aren't you the clever one! How nice to have the pan and recipes. All you need now is my address (and you have that already)

Darla Sue to you

Don't think I've ever had a Madeleine --but it sounds and looks GREAT.

Hope you are enjoying your Spring... It's been almost too cool here recently..

Thanks for stopping by today. I wish you had been at Target, too. It was scary.

I, too, have ancestry in the Alsace-Lorraine region of France! I wonder if we are related? That would be fun.

With my maiden name, I never doubted I was of French heritage. My father said his father always said he didn't know if he had more German or French in him. From what I've seen, I'm going with the more French. : )

I binged your nephew. He is at a school that is SW of town. I live near downtown. Houston covers a huge land area.

I love those cookies and keep thinking that one day, I will buy a pan. My neice loves them too, so I can share with her.

That's a lovely way to present a pan as a gift!
