That really cramps my style since I’m not a morning person and not fond of going out when it’s already dark, especially … Continue reading

October’s Best Bites

October’s Best Bites

OCTOBER’S BEST BITES October was a lazy month for me in the kitchen (under the weather), so I indulged in lots of shortcuts and easy meals, including some FreshDirect specialties like their excellent grass fed beef chili and chicken tortilla soup, which I’ve posted photos of previously. The captions below describe some of October’s dishes, … Continue reading
