Tracking PixelThis post is sponsored by Foster Farms chicken locally grown in the Pacific Northwest, but all opinions are my own.Those of you who are long-time readers of this blog know that I love cooking with locally grown and produced foods. I also tend to adopt the flavors indigenous to the place I live. When I lived in Arizona, we ate Mexican food. When I lived in Florida, we ate Southern food and seafood.
