Yummey New Recipe
I made a new southern living recipe that my entire family loved! And believe me when I say I have some picky eaters! One of mine refuses to eat some of the food we make and pulls a Ghandi on us, but we stick to our guns and try to get them to try at least one bite of everything on the table before turning their noses up:) Try it out and let me know what you thought.
