Winter Veggie Au Gratin

This recipe is the tale of two dishes that left my mouth watering, yet my pants calling for cleaner, skinnier versions. The first inspiration for this dish came from the incredible Butternut Squash and Parsnip Gratin by Amanda Jane over at Seasonally Jane, one of the best food blogs I’ve just recently stumbled upon via Instagram. …

Finger-Lickin’ Good Clean BBQ Sauce

I LOVE chicken. And I love barbecue sauce.
