Be a kitchen forager, use leftovers!— Ashly Christen
Save those scraps!
An important tip I learned from my mother. Save those scraps when making homemade meals, such as those few extra carrot, celery, onions scraps etc etc. Place in a zip lock and freeze, then add to it as the days go by, creating a stockpile for quick and easy access for future recipes, soups, stocks and more! These scraps are perfect for a recipe such as pot pie!
Pot Pie has always been a favorite dish of mine. I love the way the crust crumbles into the rest of the pie, soaking up all that gooey goodness! It warms you up from the inside out, leaving behind the feeling that can only come from that good ole comfort food!
