Today's recipe comes from The Seasoned Mom hosted by Blair. You can look at the original recipe here. She has lots of other recipes and she writes, "Hello I'm Blair! I believe in the power of a simple homemade meal to bring a family together. That's why I share easy, quick-prep recipes that eliminate mealtime stress!" A great reason to go back and read more of her recipes, and also to see what tips she has for this one. Thank you Blair!
