St Patrick’s Day Muddy Buddies

I was putting together a missionary package the other day and needed some easy treats because my ankle is still not 100% so these muddy buddies fit the bill and besides, who doesn’t love muddy buddies?  The recipe comes from “Frugal Mom Eh!”.  I doubled the recipe and it made a full Ziploc gallon bag … Continue reading

Shepherd’s Pie

This recipe came to me in an email from Food Network, by Melissa d’Arabian.  It is easy to make but time consuming however you can tell by the taste (which was excellent) that it was made from scratch and slowly.  I read online that this actually isn’t truly Shepherd’s Pie because Shepherd’s Pie has lamb … Continue reading
