I also sometimes serve the potatoes with a herb-infused brown butter, […]

Chinese Chicken Salad - an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

Chinese Chicken Salad – an Ageless Diet™ Recipe

I used to love the Chinese Chicken Salad my aunt would make. It was sweet, savory, and 100% addictive. However, it was not ageless.

My new favorite salad, created on the fly using the bounty of Farmers Market corn, zucchini, and crunchy, crispy pickling cucumbers.
