Mix and Match

It’s that time again – when you’re running low on ingredients you have to get creative. Earlier this week, I found myself left with one chicken breast and some frozen broccoli so my only choice was to use seasonings to make this the best chicken and broccoli dish ever. Here’s what I did: Marinade White…

Eataly

I’ve been to an Eataly once before, and for an Italian girl it’s better than a candy store! The Boston Eataly store opened in Prudential Center in November 2016. I went for the first time on Saturday afternoon and I was overwhelmed, in the best way. There are many counters and aisles of Italian food….
