Zucchini Cake with Lemon and Poppyseeds

Pear Almond Tart

French. Foolproof. Froufrou. Fuss-free. Fenomenal. (Work with us.) Rarely does elegance come together with such ease (and alliteration) as this tart recipe.

A ceramic oval dish of baked spinach mornay with cream sauce, sliced onion, and browned top

Sautéed Bacon, Mushrooms, and Lentils

It may seem criminal to bathe the walloping nutrition of lentils and mushrooms in anything but wholesomeness, but there’s something to be said for quality of life. Hello, bacon!
