It’s time for another Recipe ReDux post, and this month’s theme is 7 Ingredients or Less. That’s my kind of a recipe, and it ranks right up there with my other favorite category -the One Pan Recipe. Even though I love to cook, if I see a long ingredient list in a recipe, I hate to admit it, but I usually can’t be bothered. Inevitably, I’m out of at least one of the ingredients, or I’ll make the entire thing, and then realize I left one (or more) of those ingredients out because I just couldn’t keep track.
