Growing up these were one of my favorites! My Mom would make them for parties to serve as appetizers with those little square rye bread slices to soak up the sauce. Sometimes she would even make them for dinner and we would have them over rice – YUM! Now a days I make them for […]
After months of promising, it is finally here – my first weekly meal plan! As most of you know, I did this a little backwards. Most people blog or post recipes and then write a book. I wrote If I Could Just Cook In My Car and now I am blogging. Just proves the point […]
