Tastespotting has mouthwatering photos and up until now, all I've done is drool over the photos.
Today, however, I tried to make something... taking a quick inventory of my almost bare cupboards and refrigerator I decided on the Leek and potato gratin - according to Tastespotting, it's "lovely comfort food with minimal cooking."
Sounded perfect... and I only needed to buy a couple things - so I walked up to my local Nature's Bin (I love that store)... got the leek and cream... and couldn't wait to try this!
Every amazing photo on Tastespotting is a link to where the recipe can be found.. this one in particular is on Soy and Pepper which now, of course, is another blog I'll be stalking!
So.. how did my creation turn out?? (if you're expecting a photo here, forget it)
I cooked mine a little longer... because I like the top to be browned nicely and a little crispy. hmmmmm so good. I didn't take a photo of mine... I dug into it too fast! And to be totally truthful, it didn't look nearly as nice as the one in the photo but it tasted (yes, past tense... this was my lunch and my dinner) amazing.
I think this weekend I'll try this...
