I don't think I've ever laughed that hard from an internet comment. Bravo.   Oh and BTW if I may say, the leek/shallot/pancetta galette looks scrumptious!!
Interesting! What difference do you make between a crêpe Bretonne and a standard crêpe? To me, a crêpe is a specialty from Brittany, so it's obviously Breton. "Crêpe Bretonne" sounds to me like "American Burger", and I'm not sure what difference I would make between an American burger and a standard burger. 
Haha.... welcome to the complexity of the French language I guess. You did not misuse the word.  In French a galette can be just about anything round and flat. For example, a small, flat spare wheel for your car is called a galette:   Now most of the time a galette indicates a food product, rather flat, round, made from some kind of flour based crust, and that could be sweet or savory. An example is the "Galette des rois" which is a frangipane galette:  But the term is...

This new seaweed!! Should have good commercial success? http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/researchers-discover-seaweed-that-tastes-like-bacon-and-is-twice-as-healthy-as-kale-a7455071.html
Lemon curd sounds like a great Xmas gift.    Pickles? I like to make pickled turnips: use the following recipe but halve the salt and use a whole beet for a bright red color (I don't like the palish relish color he gets on his turnips, with a whole beet yours will look bright red): http://www.davidlebovitz.com/pickled-turnips-turnip-recipe/  - well you could pickle just about anything, for example a mason jar with pickled cauliflower, carrots and cucumber spears, with a...
Yes good point. It only takes minutes to poach a chicken breast!
