Roasted Beet and Potato Salad

Lately I seem to have some time on my hands. My new job, while it pays well, is boring to the point of tears. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on who you are) I spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, and that time has been well spent … Continue reading

So I normally love throwing random ingredients together, and usually have the energy (and fundage) to run to the store for one or two ingredients. But today, it was a no-go. I bought a bunch of rolls for this past Sunday. My sister was taking us on a trip a few hours away, as an … Continue reading
