This soup is incredibly adaptable.  I usually always have carrots and celery in […]

Sweet and tangy baked beans from scratch from The New Moosewood Cookbook.  Delicious! These beans may not be the prettiest things, but they are super tasty.  If you want a boring, bland recipe this is not it.  These do take some time and if you choose to use dry beans you’ll need to soak them […]
