{Giveaway Closed} I have a delicious recipe and a fun giveaway for you today.

Last week I was talking with my good friend Deb who lives in Michigan.  Deb is an amazing cook.  She was having dinner guests that evening and was describing the menu to me – if Deb was making it I knew it would be good.  So of course I asked for the recipes. My parents were coming for dinner last Sunday so it was the perfect opportunity to try out one of Deb’s recipes – Dulce de Leche and Apples. I am a big dulce de leche fan since our [Continue Reading...]
