Parmesan and Basil Orzo


This is a household favorite. It calls for very few ingredients and is adaptable for picky eaters. Cooking with orzo is really fun and the flavors in this dish are fantastic. I sometimes add ground turkey to make it a meal. Easy. What’s better than that? (more…)

Still, we love picnics, and I plan to do as many of them as possible this summer. That will require an arsenal of go-to picnic foods. This one was a bit of a last-minute throw together, but it turned out wonderful! The baby might not have been able to enjoy it, but I like to think that she would have if she could have. (more…)
