Francophone Recipes

Disclaimer: Remember that just because a recipe says it's "French", doesn't mean it's really French.While these sites have a lot of good, authentic recipes, some of the recipes aren't really authentic. So you have to evaluate, and if you're not sure, ask! I don't guarantee that every recipe on every site below is authentic.You can always do a search for the origin of a recipe. Tip: muffins, brownies and cupcakes are not French. Also, if the name has "French" in it, it's probably not French.
