By topping parmesan-flavored creamed spinach with a bread crumb topping, creamed spinach becomes a great potluck dish that can be made up to a day ahead and needs just a few minutes under the broiler to be hot, crunchy, and ready for the table.
Recipe: Creamed Spinach Gratin

This fall salad is bursting with color and flavor from sweet poached pears, crunchy macadamia nuts, creamy goat cheese, and jewel-colored pomegranate seeds--very impressive.
