RECIPE: B&B Balsamic for Salads and Pasta
I had a great assistant in the B&B kitchen for a recent event. My grandson stepped in as sous(ish) chef helping mix some of the ingredients, staging the buffet, and plating help. Some of the best “feel good” moments I ever experience is when someone loves my cooking. I am over the moon when it is someone special like my teenage grandson. So, without further ado, here is ” the only dressing I will ever eat on salad again,” sayeth the Grandson. Note to Self: He has not yet had the strawberries.UTENSILS RECOMMENDED FOR RECIPES
