By Heather Solos | October 15, 2010

Heather says: I mentioned a couple of months ago that I was working on getting more fish into our diet. Salmon is our go to, it’s a reliable fish, but like chicken it can go with a number of flavors. With the weather cooling off I find my tastes turn toward warmer flavors.  The toasted…

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

By Heather Solos | May 2, 2011

Heather says: Buffalo chicken sandwiches are my weakness. I don’t know why, maybe it’s the combination of crunch, heat, and the cool of the blue cheese.
