flush mount fixtures for the hallway

I have an ongoing list in my head of stuff I want to change in our home.  Since I’ve started the great bathroom renovations of 2016, I want to do it all at once.

summer rice and broccoli salad

This salad seems simple but the layers of crunchy vegetables, the heat from the fresno chile and the refreshing flavor of mint makes it complex.  I’ve been making this non-stop since I discovered the recipe in Bon Appétit.  The original recipe has cracked farro but I’m gluten free these days (not by choice, trust me) so I subbed rice....
