Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

The other day Zachary asked me if my favorite food was soup and I couldn’t exactly say no. I’d be hard-pressed to pick a favorite food (though lahanodolmades and lamb are waaaaaay up there) but I’d have to say that soups/stews are definitely my favorite...more

General Tso’s Chicken

Apple Oatmeal Bread

We recently had a family trip to the apple orchard. As expected, eating the apples was far superior to picking them, as far as the kids were concerned. But, we did end up with well over 10 lbs ....more
