The Dish on Chia Seeds – Give ‘em a try!

Our resident foodie, Elizabeth Blake, forwarded me this article (http://www.foodandwine.com/blogs/2014/1/6/9-ways-to-use-chia-seeds?xid=DISH010914WaysToUseChia) because she knew that I am a chia fan.  The team is always making fun of me for it, because chia seeds are a bit off the wall.  In fact, my kids openly mock me with “Daddy eats chia pets!” before dissolving into laughter and running […]

July’s Dish Tip: The dish on Summer Orzo Salad

Orzo…what is it? Featured in our Santorini Chicken Kabobs and Summer Orzo Salad, orzo is rice-shaped pasta.  Orzo soaks up the lemony vinaigrette that gives this meal bright summery flavor. Cook orzo the same way as you would any other pasta – in plenty of water. Although typically pasta should not be rinsed after cooking, […]

Now dishing….’Humble Pie’.
