Food Friday: White Bean, Bacon, Kale,...


I should really come up with a shorter name for this one, but nothing really does it justice.  It’s essentially my pasta-less take on a minestrone. Back in August when that super cute I-could-squeeze-those-cheeks-for-days nephew of ours was born, we offered to make some freezable meals for my sister and brother-in-law.  Any one who’s been on […]
