I’ve got to tell you, I’ve been so inspired by other bloggers lately. They’ve come up with such incredible recipes, it amazes me. A lot of people in our life think we are excellent cooks, the truth of the matter is that we’re just really good at following recipes. There have been a few duds, but for the most part, most of my “recipes” that my friends and family have come to know and love have made their way into our recipes files through simple trial and error. So I hope you find some inspiration in these recipes, I know I sure as hell did.
