About

I was digging in the pantry to see what I could make with the food I had available, and trying to find a recipe that would keep me from having to go to the store for ingredients. I found this recipe from Food Network Magazine for an orzo salad that looked great. Turns out, it was really good. All I added was a fresh squeeze of lemon juice to brighten the flavors.
