Chive & Walnut Dressing

May 9, 2015


Life is currently a little chaotic. We are getting our kitchen remodeled, and without a kitchen to play in, I am feeling very lost. Plus, living on takeout food is expensive, boring, and downright unhealthy. I am counting the days until I get to cook and prepare my own food again.
