Loaded potatoes au gratin

Russet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8” thick
Cream simmered with garlic, a bay leaf, and lots of salt
Mozzarella and Parmigiano

Take a pan. One layer of potatoes, a little cheese over the top, then pour enough cream on top to almost cover it. Keep on layering until your last layer of potatoes, where you don’t want cheese on top yet. Bake for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. Add the cheese on top at last and broil until golden brown.

Add bacon crumbles and chives for that extra NOM factor.

Beef bourguignon, inspired by Thomas Keller’s Bouchon recipe.

I don’t have access to gorgeous fancy baby French carrots, so I just sliced some baby carrots on an angle to emulate the appearance.
