  1. This sounds really fantastic, Kelly! A treat! I’m away from home right now, but when I get back and can settle just a bit I’d like to look into your cookbook. I love the way you think–and prepare food. 🙂

    • Thanks Lovey! Hope you get to try some of these out! I’ve booked lots of food demos in my area for the summer! You’ll have to give me some feedback on what you think and I’ll send you some to test out for the fall recipes! 🙂 Hope you enjoy them!
