It is hard to believe that 2018 is more than half over. Yet, here we are in the middle of August. This particular post is written for a … Continue reading.....
We’re coming into another prime leftover season and, in my opinion, there is no better way to use up the odd bits than risotto.
I used chicken in this but you could easily use ham, turkey or anything else left in the fridge.
Or leave the meat out and add more veggies.
I would serve the cranberry sauce on the … Continue reading.....
Everyone knows Beef Barley Soup but why not Chicken Barley Soup?
I love barley, in soup, salads, as a side dish….
