BEST OF THE BESTIES
(We need and want inspiration from you – both for our own cooking and for this blog.   Best of the Besties will showcase recipes you submit to us; we’ll try them and add our thoughts – but will use your original recipe, tweaked just to conform to standard recipe publishing.   Keep in mind the criteria: fairly quick and simple; enough for 1 or 2 people to have leftovers; freezes and re-heats well; delicious.)
