Hello Linda Well your granddaughter is not a teenager yet but you will find a few recipes that are easy to make onto the "recipe" then "dessert" section of this site, like the Carrot Cake, the Flan, the Chocolate Mousse. Keep us informed !

My granddaughter.Burkley needs a simple French dessert that a 7 year old could do with little help. This is a project for 3rd graders. Thanks

Hi Difficult to answer your questions : do you mean an ordinary dinner for the week and for a week end when inviting guests or a festive dinner for Xmas (for this latter, you will find examples in the special "festive menus" report of this site) ? Answer depends on the number of people for the dinner, on the region in France etc... A standard simple dinner would include a simple starter or a soup, followed by (just on example) a roasted chicken or roastbeef servec with mashed potatoes or french fries or a "gratin dauphinois", then by some cheese (very french !) and fresh fruits or (if a week end) with an apple tart or a creamy desserty like a "crème brûlée") (recipe in this site). Bon appétit
