Hi Lark & Linen readers, this is Chloe from Boxwood Avenue back visiting with an easy fall recipe that makes for the perfect hostess gift!
I live on a cattle ranch in northern California where my husband works as the fifth generation to run his family’s business. Since moving, I have learned so much about food, where our food comes from, and the people that grow it. We have a farm in Sacramento, California where we grow tomatoes, sunflowers, alfalfa, wheat, and many other crops.
