21 Mar

Summer Rice Salad is simple to prepare and the flavors go together so well, giving you a delicate flavor that you wont find in any other dish on the picnic table this summer.

There is nothing I like better then eating homemade soups, stews, and chowders.  I love how the longer ingredients simmer the more the flavor develops, and you can get completely different tastes from similar ingredients depending on how they are combined.  Soups are multi-talented, they can be served nearly any time of the day.  They can be hearty and warm on those cool days, or they can be chilled and light when it’s warm out.  Soups are simply fabulous!
