Summer Vegetable Gratin

This recipe is quite a long time coming and I kind of feel bad it took me this long to post it on here, but I had to make sure it was perfect.

The dish seems quite simple with just the veggies, some cheese, and herbs, but don’t let that fool you. This has much more flavor than you’d expect it would. Continue reading

Enchilada Casserole

I’m a huge fan of casseroles when they taste good. What’s not to love? They are filling, usually take little work, and can feed an army (or have tons of leftovers). The catch is that most casseroles are quite bland in my opinion, so what do we do about it?
