Last week, I had some of my fellow Eversave co-workers over for dinner and vino.

Each and every one of my three dinner guests (as well as myself) have different tastes in food, so it took me some time to figure out what to make. For example, one of my co-workers doesn't like cheese, eggs or beans - three ingredients I use in 90% of my meals. I had to be creative, while making the meal affordable and elegant.
And what's more affordable and elegant (not to mention versatile and delicious) than puff pastry?
After flipping through several of my cookbooks, I combined my inspiration from several of the recipes I found. The end result: Leeks, tomato, herbs, salt and pepper, all cooked in a puff pastry.

I served the tomato and leek "tart" with roasted potatoes and a simple arugula salad.
The meal ended up being pleasing to all palates at the table - and it was also simple, elegant and ultra affordable.
