I will surely be coming back here for dinner ideas! I love to cook with my boys, and my 13 yr. old wants to be a chef. He is already an outstanding cook, and has been cooking since he was 8 yrs. old. I'm your newest follower via GFC . Please stop by and check out my blog. I'm still new, but trying to get my name out there.
