ROASTED VEGETABLES

One of my favorite ways to eat and make vegetables. Roasted vegetables bring out sweet flavor notes of veggies and they’re infused with the olive oil you drizzle it with. It has been raining here for 6 days straight. It’s supposed to clear up today and we’re supposedly finally going to see some sun. The […]

ONE-SKILLET BALSAMIC CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES

I love balsamic anything. Food coated with a thick, juicy layer of balsamic reduction is my kind of food.
