A few weeks ago I got an email from an Editor at InRegister, a Baton Rouge Magazine, asking if I would want to share a recipe with their readers. Of course I said "yes!" and was excited to share a project I had been brewing up for awhile.

Cooking can seem intimidating at times but the more you do it, the more forgiving you realize it is.

Through that I have created a base recipe that allows me to alternate some of the vegetables I add based on what I have and what we are in the mood for.Read More
