There are fires burning all over Northern California and the air outside is so smoky and gray it's hard to be outside. We had a fire up the street just two weeks ago so it makes me nervous when I smell all this smoke and hear a siren. We live right near a 6,000 acre regional park that is a great place to take the dogs off leash but it is just miles and miles of dry grass. So I keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.
With my recent efforts to find gluten free recipes that everyone will like, I've been scouring the internet and food blogs to find ideas. Last night I made this pesto zucchini tomato gratin from Karina's Kitchen blog. My god it was fantastic.
The crumb topping made from waffles was perfect - you'd never guess if you didn't know. The combination of the zucchini, tomatoes and artichoke hearts was delicious and the whole thing went together quickly. This got thumbs up all around and is something I will definitely be making again.
