Mandarin Orange Chicken

Sometimes comfort food means cooking what your mom used to make when you were a kid.  Today’s recipe is just that.  She didn’t make it too often but I was always excited when she did.  If I had my way, I would have just eaten the rice and the sauce.  Of course now that I am an adult and I run my own household, I can do what I want, but I admit nothing.  Nothing!Mandarin Orange Chicken ~ Living the Savory Life Continue reading

Chuck Steak Shepherd’s Pie
