My Buttons

Monday, May 11, 2015      19 comments

It all started with a craft idea I saw about 10 or more years ago in a magazine. Some crafty person had made a pin (brooch) out of buttons. They had bought buttons all the same color and sewed them on to a circle form. I thought to myself, co... Read more

First off, the yumminess! I am SO in love with this recipe that I have it once a week! Yes, it is high in fat, but it's a good fat and if you eat low fat the rest of the day, you're ok. It's easy to prepare. And it tastes so, so good!! ... Read more
