Every time I have a party, it’s a struggle not to have the menu be all Smitten Kitchen, all the time. When I threw a party a couple of weeks ago, I think I succeeded—only two of the six or so items I cooked were from her blog. Perhaps not surprisingly, one of those two—these leek toasts with blue cheese—was the tastiest thing there, by my reckoning.
The other one I screwed up, but had I not read “1/3 cup sour cream” when the recipe clearly called for “1 cup sour cream,” it probably would have the second-most delicious thing at my party. Which makes me wonder why I bother trying to limit myself to not-all-Smitten recipes.
Anyway. I love leeks, I love blue cheese, I love toast. I never would have thought to combine them, but someone ingenious did, and I am thankful.
