Mushroom-Onion Truffle Pesto Pizza {Recipe ReDux}

As I mentioned yesterday, this month’s Recipe ReDux theme was Pizza Party. I certainly got in the pizza making mood and made a couple of variations.

But I came across a rice recipe that sounded really good and worth a try. It’s the best rice dish I have ever made and it’s become a favorite in my… read more »

Chicken Vegetable Udon Soup {Recipe ReDux}

As you’re getting ready for the end of 2013, you may be thinking about what lies ahead for you in the coming year. Some people have a custom of wearing red on New Year’s Eve to bring them good luck in the New Year. Other people give gifts on Near Year’s Day to bring good fertility or prosperity to friends and loved ones. And as we take time to reflect on the previous year, we often make resolutions for bettering ourselves in the year to come. One tradition I wasn’t familiar with was the concept of “go… read more »
