Eggplant, Potato and Pepper Gratin

Before you move on, I promise you, this gratin is so worth making! My husband had a “meh” reaction when I told him this is what I was going to make one night for dinner.  But, once he tasted it, he LOVED it!  He’s my toughest critic, so take his word on this one.

Kale Gratin

A good example of great comfort food....more

Roasted Baby Zucchini and Gruyere Gratin

Every week at the Santa Monica farmer's market, I walk by the farmers who I call the squash-and-artichoke farmers.  There are many squash and artichoke farmers there, so you won't be led to them if you go looking for farmers under that description.  That's just a marker in my mind that indicates they are the best squash and artichoke farmers at the market. ...more
