CROQUE MADAME

you’re going to make this sauce and want to use it on everything! it’s so cheesy and decadent. ivan took the leftovers and made mac + cheese with it which also sounds SO good. such a simple recipe to throw together and feels very impressive. i liked mine without the egg, but the egg makes it more breakfast appropriate. the recipe was inspired by on Food&Wine and it’s definitely fun to make when you’re feeling a little indulgent! – joanie

• in a pot melt butter on medium heat, once melted slowly whisk in the flour. constantly stirring for about a minute or until the mixture begins to thicken. add milk and shredded gruyere cheese, continue to stir on low heat for another 3-5 minutes, don’t let it burn! remove from heat.

• we used a cast iron skillet to lightly toast our thick slices of french loaf on both sides but a regular toaster works fine too. next turn broiler on. place your toast on a baking sheet lined with parchment, add one to two spoonfuls of sauce to each slice and smooth to cover the surface, then add the sliced ham, cover with shredded gruyere cheese. place the baking sheet in the broiler and broil until the cheese is golden and bubbly.

• fry four eggs to your liking. add each fried eggs to each of the toast, top with chopped chives and serve with the mixed greens salad. for the mixed salad, we just placed some fresh greens in a bowl with a bit of red wine vinegar and high quality olive oil. add a sprinkle of salt and enjoy!

WEEKEND AT HOME / 102

lately, yellow is taking over my color palette. it’s such a vibrant accent color, and i love how bold of a contrast it lends a space. there’s an overwhelming number of colors yellow works with navy, blush, white, and blackbut my favorite pairing is blush pink with mustard yellow. i’m eyeing so many mustard duvets at the moment and would love to refresh my space with one. rather than a ton of yellow, i prefer subtle ochre textiles as a lovely way to add the pop of yellow to a spacethink mustard hued linens and velvets alongside neutrals. what do you think about adding a bit of yellow to your space?
