    I often make the roasted cauliflower…and my scribbled out recipe says your name at the top:) I very very often make the homemade granola bars you linked to once. I have tried lots of your recipes over the years…white bean and kale soup and the gnocchi being ones I love…so thanks:)

    I’m making your honey spiced chicken thighs Friday. It’s the 1st chance I’ve gotten because we’ve been away and I’ve been busy lately.
