Another entry last week that was very popular was NO BOIL LASAGNA from Kitty’s Kozy Kitchen. Kitty this looks scrumptious!!! This will satisfy a hungry crowd, for sure!

Look at these dinner rolls, aren’t they beauties!!! Camille at GROWING UP GABEL shared a great recipe for SLOW COOKER DINNER ROLLS. With the holidays just a couple of months away this is a recipe to try!

    This weeks menu sounds like another great weeks of delicious dinners.
    I picked up pork tenderloin this week and now I am going to print out your recipe for the apricot glazed tenderloin. Can’t wait to try that and the chicken soup for the chicken carcass.

    Thanks for planning such a great menu.

    I am number 3012 GFC follower! ^_^ I am not into baking that much and I love to bake more this time. I have one question referring to an ingredient called “milk” what kind of milk they are referring to? Sorry I am a newbie in baking ^_^


    • says

      Hi Kim, What recipe are you referring to? If a recipe calls for “milk” I just use whatever kind I have on hand. Skim, 1%, 2% or whole! Hope this helps! So glad you stopped by. Thanks for following!!!

    This is my first time to your blog and I am excited to explore! I love creativity in all forms, but especially with food. Your Constructed Pear Salad caught my eye and that will be my first stop.
