Lemon Chicken and Dumplings

The first time I ever had chicken and dumplings I as probably about 11 years old. We were living in Georgia and a friend’s mom had made a big o’ pot of chicken and dumplings. I’ll be honest…I looked at this bowl suspiciously. It was nothing I had ever tried or found remotely familiar. My 11…

Sancocho (Puerto Rican Beef Stew)

It’s crazy cold outside right now. I never thought that when I moved to Texas the temperatures would dip below 25 degrees!   Cold weather like this calls for a warm hearty stew.  Something to warm the soul and fill the belly.

Spiced Ancient Grain Hot Cereal

I know that 2015 officially started on January 1 (obviously) but, I don’t mentally start the year until the first Monday of the New Year.
