Low Carb Chicken Burritos

Nothing, I mean absolutely nothing was going to help this dish photograph well.  Ha.  Nothing.  However, it tasted SO good that we had to make it a few days later.  To be perfectly honest, we considered making it a meal prep, but couldn’t quite figure out how to keep the tortilla from getting too soggy…

My 10 Flavors I Love in Alamance County and Beyond

This was the February 2013 article published in Alamance Magazine. I’m sorry I haven’t been around much. I’ve began a new job since the last time I posted, and I also closed my right hand index finger in my car door. It was broken and horribly swollen. That hasn’t made it very easy to type,…
