We are having friends over for dinner tonight and I know they are chocoholics so was wanting to make them something that I haven’t made them before.

Grandbabies & Gluten

In the last few days I have learned several things. First of all I learned that you cannot substitute gluten free pasta when making one pot pasta casseroles. They end up like a pot of mush. Secondly, yesterday we learned that no matter how many grandkids you have, there is always room in your heart … Continue reading
