"Grocery List Refresh" is a simple way to update your pantry with must have ingredients in cooking a certain cuisine. Why is it important to refresh your grocery list? Because if you have the ingredients on hand you will be more likely to try out a brand new dish, or infuse new flavor into your staples. Think of it like traveling at your very own kitchen table...!
Earlier this month, we challenged you all to do 3 simple things to help you live like you're traveling. One of these is to celebrate a holiday from another culture. I decided to introduce my family to Chinese New Year and so I enlisted Amy, our neighborly expert on asian cooking.. and together we picked out a special Chinese New Year's Menu to cook up for the celebration.
