Beef Stir Fry with Thai Basil & Lime Sauce

I have to admit… I just don’t like more veggies when they are cooked! Raw is fine (I love salads), but I don’t like most vegetable side dishes. I’m a big fan of stir fry because it sneaks more vegetables into my diet. The grocery store had a sale on beef stir fry meat, but […]

If you’ve only ever used dried basil, you are MISSING OUT! Fresh basil […]

Crock Pot Wine Chicken

You may have realized by now that we like wine here at the PinterTest Kitchen. Whether it’s using that wine in recipes, like this Sunshine Cake, or just drinking it on the side, there’s almost always a cork being popped in the evenings at one or the other Boyer residence. So when I saw this […]
