Excuse me but, where’s winter? I’ve looked under the bed, on the side of the house and in my purse and I’m not seeing it. I even looked at our Kansas City long range forecast and there’s like, no sign of the old man. I’ve always wanted to say “long range.” I feel so grown […]

Chicken. It’s a win-win. No matter what you do with it, you’re sure to wear giddy pants while eating it. Grilled, seared, stuffed, shredded, poached, baked; honestly, the world is your oyster.
