Pollo Asado with Rice & Beans

It messes with my work flow and having good light in the late afternoons. Now, there […]

by Amanda Martin on November 6, 2014

I’m all about making life as easy as possible. Especially in the kitchen. This one-pot meal requires little attention from the chef unlike traditional risotto, but still tastes and looks so elegant. The borlotti beans are an Italian brown bean that can be replaced with pinto beans. It offers great color contrast. But I’ve made […]
