Welcome to Thursday Thirteen and the blogging world! Great list. Yes, there is lots we can do in the kitchen in 15 little minutes. We can also make rice a la Julia Child. She tested, retested and timed it down to 12 minutes. Perfect every time!
Happy Thursday!
Do you bake pies? I have a fall pie roundup coming up Nov. 14th. Some foodies could be introduced to your new blog (& vice versa).
