Dr. Camilla’s Bonfire Stew [video]

by admin

Dr. Camilla says: Start out not using too much of the spices, but figure out what is savory to your taste buds. The sea salt the key to help bring out the flavor. This recipe is enough to feed a family of four and leave some leftovers, which helps keep me from going crazy tyring to keep up with Stephen, who eats like a ‘food combine’. Try to always cook enough for next day’s lunch – this is a vital behavior!
