I’m going to go ahead and make a quick confession here: sometimes I go to Whole Foods and I don’t buy anything. Yes, you’re reading this correctly. I window shop at Whole Foods. Just like some people go to department stores, try on a sweater and check back online every few days to see if its gone on sale, I go to the grocery store, cruise the prepared food section for ideas and file them away in the notes section of my iPhone until I’m ready to make something nicer than the yogurt and pretzel sticks that I had for dinner tonight.

Last week, I was doing just this when I spotted a new shelf of ready-to-bake flatbread next to the pizza counter at my neighborhood Whole Foods. I happened to have a bag of dried cranberries and a wheel of brie in my refrigerator so one pre-packaged flatbread and a leek later, I knew what I was making for a gathering that I was hosting.
