Zucchini and Tomato Gratin

I'm back! Ok, I have been back since Thursday, but it has taken me a few days to get readjusted around here. I had a wonderful time cookin' with my mama! We made breakfast, lunch and dinner for 25 people for 4 days. It was a roller coaster, but everyone loved the food! I also got to see my aunt Kathy (she is actually Jeffrey's aunt, but I claim her)! She pampered me with a mani and pedi, thank you Kathy!! Then I stayed the night with my best friend, Katie Wheeler! I can't believe it had almost been a year since I had seen her. We had a blast discussing wedding plans for her big day in April. I was really excited to see everyone, but I missed my hubby! He was ready for me to be home, and to cook him some good food!

Here is the awesome kitchen we cook in! I had a blast cooking with so much room!

We made a lot of new dishes that I am excited to share with you. I went to the store yesterday and yummy food will be coming your way soon. This recipe came from Stacey's Snacks Blog. It is sooo good, I already have it on my menu again for next week.

1 zuchini
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes
