What you need: whole cut-up chicken, sesame oil, soy sauce, … Continue reading »

Daffy apples

I’m not super into Halloween.  Never really have been.  But the one thing that I absolutely love about this time of year, is the fact that my local grocery store starts carrying Daffy Apples.  I was first introduced to them in college, and have been in love with them since. Their red candy apple is … Continue reading »

Sunflower cupcakes
