Cheese Sauce for Broccoli and Cauliflower
Wonderful sauce! I usually follow directions to the letter the first time I make a recipe and I did so with this one and it was wonderful. Today I made it again to go with my Broccoli Cheese Crepes and added minced garlic to the butter while it was melting. I also used extra sharp cheddar this time as one reviewer suggested and it is beyond good. Now it's the only cheese sauce recipe I have in my cookbook as it has so many variations that you can do with it. Blue cheese, Swiss cheese, so many!

Stacked Tomato and Burrata Salad
OMG! I never thought of using Burrata this way! I usually just scoff it down, slowly of course. This cheese is a bit hard to find and not likely at your local grocery but if you have a Fresh Market or cheese shop near by you should be O.K. It's definitely worth the search and farm fresh tomatoes are mandatory! (In a pinch, fresh mozzarella will work but not as wonderful to eat.) Chef John has done it again!!

Pecan Crackers
I didn't have pecans so I used about a cup of roasted peanuts that I put thru the blender to make a rough chop. I also used organic coconut palm sugar (which tastes like a very light brown sugar) and they were great! Even better a day later. These are more like a candy and everyone loved them! Will make again with pecans but I think the family will prefer them with peanuts. I think I'll go have another one right now!
