Everyone, meet Kristin. Kristin is my go to ‘what should I make for dinner’ gal. I have sent her texts on many afternoons asking just that. She always has a quick, easy idea for me. She is a woman that likes to cook and is not afraid to try new things in the kitchen. She cooks all kinds of things from main dishes to sweets. She admits that she is a bit weak on her side dishes…hmmm I doubt that. Anyway, I have asked Kristin to be our resident recipe expert. You will be hearing from her a couple times a month with some great recipe Yumminess!
Rachel asked me to share a few ‘summer’ recipes. Here are a few that came to mind. I look forward to sharing more recipes with all of you! Next time I’ll post pictures of the finished product 🙂
