I'm cooking dinner this weekend for my family and I was looking for some new recipes to try. They're pretty particular and love the traditional dinner we do, so I don't want to stray too far, but I thought one or two new things would be great. I asked on my facebook if anyone had any no fail, super yummy recipes and this is one that I got back from my friend Jenal! She was such a doll to send it to me (in the facebook comment section no less)! I thought I would share it with all of you!
Thanks so much Jenal! I'll let you know how it turns out! xoxo
