Garlic Soup with Poached Eggs and Croutons

I’ve been channeling my inner Julia again.  Mastering the Art of French Cooking is out and about and getting progressively more dog-eared on my counter.  When flipping through looking for some sauce or something, I stumbled across a recipe for Aigo Bouido Soupe a l’Oeuf, Provencale, or garlic soup with poached eggs.  We just received … Continue reading

What’s for dinner: Saturday
