I don’t really like fruit with meat.
I’ll pass on Duck a L’Orange.
I don’t eat chutney with lamb, grilled peaches with pork chops and you will never find raisins in my beef stew.
There are two exceptions: I love lemon with just about anything, and I like apples with pork.

I wanted different flavors with this chicken, so I added a rib of celery and a carrot for flavoring rather than as an anticipated side dish.
I roasted potatoes and (you guessed it) … Continue reading.....

Okay, I can google it but I … Continue reading.....
