I checked out the creamy leak gratin and it looks FAAAAAB! too bad my boring family would never eat anything like that...


They didn't even go for the sweet corn pudding and mine came out perfect!

I love baked brie too - yum.

your Thanksgiving meal plan was outstanding, naturally... glad you enjoyed your holiday!

Can't wait to see the Christmas menu!
