Appetizers

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Anyone who has received butter lettuce in their Bountiful Basket knows that it can be a little unsettling to put something that claims to be “alive” and comes with a dirty root ball into your refrigerator. We also know that it’s delicious. Both times I’ve gotten it, I knew I […]

Apple Nachos

I think I am in LOVE! I know I am on a sugar high/rush since I haven’t had much over the last few weeks. My friend Lizabeth was talking to me the other day and I’m not sure how we got on the topic of food since we are both […]
