I’m gonna try something new over here at the Whole Smiths. I’m going to start giving you flash recipe posts. The recipes are going to be easy peasy and I’ll keep the commentary to a minimum. Although, the senseless, irreverent jokes are kinda the best part, right?
This way, I can give you MORE recipes to choose from. I have a stash of recipes to share with you that I know you are going to love! All of my flash recipes will be ones that you can make easily with just a few ingredients and obviously loaded with flavor.
But again… I’ll keep the stories and jokes to a minimum. It’s going to be hard not to ramble and be goofy but I think I can do it. For you.
Without further yipping and yapping from me…
