I love that this dish incorporates so many colors, textures, and tastes. Don’t the veggies look so tantalizing there all together? Oh, and the sauce. I could have sipped the sauce alone. I love peanut butter. Love love love it. I even named my dog Peanut Butter. So when I can eat it on pasta, […]

I’m not really one to follow recipes, so when I get in the mood to make something familiar, I do it off the top of my head. As is the case with my deviled eggs. People seem to like them, no matter what I put in them (which varies based on the contents of the […]
