    That looks like a really yummy recipe! I think I’ll have to convert it to gluten free and try it myself! Thanks!

    Mmmm…Teresa this looks so good! My daughter-in-law and one grandson have to eat gluten free so I’m saving this recipe. Thanks!

      I’m lucky not to have to worry about whether or not something is gluten free. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it.

      I tend to get creative when I have things that just have to be used. 🙂
