Talk about a blustery weekend! The weather folks are saying this is going to be a very cold April, so better hold onto those jackets a little longer. Consider making something warm yet light this week, like the detox soup I’m making at home in the crock pot.
If you check out Bucks County Taste’s recipes, you’ll find plenty of options to keep the chill out. And if that’s not enough, this week there is much to do. There are new spring menus and happy hours, a chef cook-off, and other spring treats.
