For all of our sakes I am posting a recipe. That furball below is starting to gross me out. And that came off my dog…just from brushing her…after 10 minutes. I know. Ugh.
So let’s get back to basics. This recipe comes from an old friend…She’s not old. Actually, she’s really young. I’ve just known her for a long, long time. There are some good stories there, but I’ll have to save those for a rainy day. Anyway, this recipe comes to us courtesy of Molly.
“It’s something a little different and I think it goes best with fall and winter foods…but don’t wait ’till fall to make it and try it!!!”
