Lemon-Sherry Braised Leeks Recipe | Cooking On The Weekends

Whether onions are red and small, golden and large, or green, white and long, we typically think of them as being an ingredient in a finished dish. Well I’m not feeling so typical today (or any day, really ;-)).  I love celebrating onions on their own — as the star of their own dish.  This […]
