it's like collaborative cooking, only not
If you're thinking about making the Butternut Squash and Leek Gratin from December's Cooking Light
, and pictured at profgrrrl's blog
, you don't need ramekins. I think they're grand, and do actually work best with something like this, but I don't happen to own any. I just dumped it all into a 9x9 and baked accordingly. It did take slightly longer (5 mins? I dunno. I just cook things til they look done) before it was ready for the broil-the-cheese step.
Also, if you make the Peppernut Tea Bread (also from December's Cooking Light
) pictured here at profgrrrl's blog
, it's really good with cranberry cream cheese. As in "take some cranberries and some really soft cheese and acquaint them with the food processor." See, profgrrrl garnished her plate with pomegranate seeds and someone asked if they were cranberries. They weren't. So I thought "hmmm...." and thus the cranberry cream cheese was born, and it is good.
