Dinner for Two: Rosemary-Apple Chicken Burgers + Slaw


This post is sponsored by Safeway. Thank you, friends, for letting me partner with brands to help fund the costs of recipe development on this site! I’ve got my eye on the grill these days. It’s warming up outside, but it’s still too chilly at night for me to relegate all cooking duties to my husband on the grill just so I can sit inside with

The minute we got home from New York, we finally realized that we had a baby on the way and maaaaaaybe we should think about getting a nursery ready. Let’s not talk about how I just made a baby registry last week…at
