  1. I made this together with my husband and 3 kids yesterday. It was a perfect family project on a gloomy, winter day. The kids were especially eager to eat it after they had rolled up their own sleeves to make it. We personalized it a bit to work better for our kids – we added some chicken broth to cut some of the wine flavor that may have been too strong for them. We also substituted turkey bacon for the bacon. A delicious and fun afternoon/evening!

    • Thank you for sharing your adventure with us! We loved that you included your family in the preparation and hope you enjoyed your “zen-like” afternoon together! Warmly-
      Meg & Jane
