Does anyone else tend to make the same meals over and over (mine is chicken sausage and brown rice)? I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time for a fresh new shakeup that maybe includes more than two ingredients. Cooking classes, weekly recipes and kitchen gurus are bringing us the ingredients and knowledge we need to break the routine in Birmingham
