In the kitchen with Sharon this week is my niece, Brandy Roades, with her new recipe she just made. Brandy says it’s a keeper and she will make it again. I hope she makes me some.
Brandy is a great cook and by the way her turkeys at Thanksgiving are the very best. That’s why she always does the turkeys. Thank you Brandy, and I will be waiting for my Mexican corn slaw.
Please send me your favorite recipes, and if you have one, a story and/or a picture to go with it. Send them to [email protected] or call me at 937-393-3456.
Have a great week!
