O Gratin! My Gratin!

We love all things au gratin!  This dish is comfort in a pan.  Warm and creamy, earthy, nutty, with just a touch  of sweetness; a perfect combination of flavors that raises humble root vegetables to epicurean heights!  So scrape the dish clean, loosen your belts and undo some buttons because this is a dish that…

Warm Garlic Soup!

This week we’ve got three wildly different soups simmering on the stove! Since we eat soup year round and put garlic in nearly every dish we make, this first pairing seemed perfect. Not only do you get to ingest spoonfuls of warm garlic goodness, but it’s ridiculously easy (and cheap)! Once it’s put in the…

Ooo La La Caprese Pasta

We made it to Where in the World Wednesday!  It’s been a long week so far and we are keeping it simple with an amazing Caprese Pasta.  Homemade pesto shines in this dish.  It is so easy, and light which of course, is what this week has been all about!  Fresh basil, garlic, and cheeses…
