I don’t have a ton to say. I love ramen. I love crunchiness. I love salads. I love tahini. And I really love a soft boiled egg. This is The Crunchiest Ramen Salad. Feel free to add shredded chicken to this recipe for an added protein 

Greek Chicken & Potatoes

Greek Chicken & Potatoes

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. She’s Greek, obvi, and knows how to make the best oven roasted chicken and potatoes in the world. Needless to say, no matter how many times I’ve made this recipe it never turns out like hers. Hate when
