More Good Eats from Meals Made Simple

I am thoroughly enjoying Danielle Walker’s new cookbook, Meals Made Simple and posted last week about Peruvian-Style Chicken.  I especially love Danielle’s “making it simple” section of the cookbook, and tip #3: stretch it.  Instead of mundane leftovers that are simply reheated (although I am often happy doing just that), she has a bunch of […]
