    I like almost any recipe that doesn’t have strange ingredients that I can’t find. Or, are expensive and you just use a little bit of it and the rest sits! Need breakfast ideas and maybe some slow cooker recipes.

    • Vicky & Ruth February 3, 2014 at 5:16 pm #

      Thank you for your feedback, we will have to work on some breakfast and slow cooker ideas!
