Coming off the party-high from last month’s Mini Treats & Handheld Sweets Baketogether Party, I thought we could all use a small, elegant recipe that can truly swing #TeamSweet or #TeamSavory.  This recipe highlights a few classic techniques that we should all dust-off or learn a bit more about.

Call me crazy but I just couldn’t decide on this month’s recipe. For the past two weeks, I bounced between a sweet and a savory recipe. Both delicious, both beautiful, both fun but I just couldn’t choose between them. And then it dawned on me (at 3 am when most ideas pop into my head) […]
