Warm, Cheesy Bacon Dip

Tomorrow marks the first Sunday in Febrary, which means millions of Americans will gather around their televisions for the biggest sporting AND television event of the year. My mom always referred to it as the “Stupid Bowl,” and it’s been the name I’ve used ever since.

Football just ain’t my thang. But I’ve always loved Super Bowl Sunday and other football related events because as much as they’re about the big game, they’re also about drinking beer and stuffing your gullet with as much junk food as possible.

Last week, I woke up dreaming about this beautiful French tomato tart that I had made a few years ago. You guys dream about food, too, don’t you?

It had a crispy, buttery crust, tangy Dijon mustard, perfectly ripe tomatoes, and big rounds of creamy goat cheese – that to the unknowing eye looked a little more like seared scallops than cheese (oops, sorry Chaser). Continue reading French Tomato Tart

Spanish Kale Salad

Now that winter seems to FINALLY be behind us, I got around to planting my spring garden this week. I planted all sorts of goodies: English peas, sugar snap peas, green beans, RAMPS, chard, kale, butter lettuce, arugula, mesclun mix, Romanesco cauliflower, broccoli rabe, strawberries, and a whole mess of herbs. Yay! I’m super stoked to be growing again. Continue reading Spanish Kale Salad
