I hope you will read and try this wonderful recipe from my friend and blogger, Melody. She is the fantastic cook behind the blog, Meals With Mel. Melody creates the most beautiful and delicious dishes; however, she also treasures the simple tastes and heirloom recipes that she grew up with as a child. That’s one of the things I love about Melody and her blog.

I hope you enjoy Melody’s post and be sure to visit her at Meals With Meal.  Thank you!

Have a great day! 🙂
