Disclosure: I am partnering with Kauffman’s Fruit Farm as a blog ambassador. I have received these Kauffman’s Fruit Farm products for free; however, all opinions remain my own.
This book is full of the history of the Kauffman family and their fruit business as well as recipes that have been handed down for generations. With 144 pages of full color pictures, you'll see how running a family business has changed through the third, fourth and even fifth generations!
This past week was a busy one for us. Ken recently went back to work after a shoulder injury. I'm very thankful he has been able to return to work, but I'll admit that it was very nice having him home every evening with us. It was also easy to get used to him doing the majority of the cooking!
When I got home Wednesday night, it was to an empty house. Nothing was baking in the over or cooking on the stove. I was followed into the house by three hungry bellies and I didn't have a lot of time to get something together. I took a chance on an ingredient combination that popped into my head, and despite Frances' initial misgivings, we all agreed that it turned out quite well.
- 3-4 pounds of chicken thighs
