Super Savory Sautéed Spinach

Super Savory Sautéed Spinach |

I need to tell you something. (Something else…) For me, 2016 has been the year of leafy green obsession. Every single night I’m sautéing or steaming or chopping up some Brussels sprouts, kale, swiss chard, or spinach. If I don’t get my leafy green fix, I get grumpy and bored until I can stuff some…

At heart, I’m really just a kid in an adult body. Which I’m convinced is the best way to be, because it means I get to color AND drink a glass of wine at the same time. It means I don’t have to ask my parents before using my money to go crazy in a…

Alternatively titled “Unbelievably Cheesy Zucchini Au Gratin.” Alternatively titled “Decadent Zucchini Au Gratin that is worth tears of joy.” I might have wept tears of joy when I first tried this. I also might have struggled not to eat the entire pan in one blessed, blessed sitting.
