My favorite part of Thanksgiving has to be the pie, and I make a lot of pies for the occasion. Invariably, I have quite a bit of scrap crust dough leftover.

This grain does not get mushy when cooked. If it seems too chewy for you after cooking, you may want to consider soaking them overnight (although I enjoyed the texture). When you make this salad, you’ll think […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
