Micro Greens Chicken Salad 2

UPC’s Micro Greens Chicken Salad It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post. For that I apologize. I’ve lost a bit of my “mojo” recently. Part of that is because I’ve just got too much on my plate in the real world. Of course, I simply need to […]

Bacon Scallop Tower 1

UPC’s Bacon Scallop Tower Scallops are an amazing food! They have a subtle delicious flavor, which borders on a rich meat, but without the complexity that you get out of red meats. I love to combine other subtle but delicious flavors, like the Lemongrass Coconut Scallops that I did some […]
