Mouth-Watering Lemon Potato Stir Fry
Good things happen In the kitchen when you consider flavor “affinities" or ”foods that compliment each other in a recipe". Common affinities are lime, cilantro and chili; tomato, basil, and vinegar.

So here is my newest recipe. It's simple, delicious, and full of delicious, multi-colored vegetables. And when you cook this up, be sure to let us know at connect@smallkitchenBIGTASTE.com
