It's a New Year! Start it with some bread.

Wow.  Last year was a busy and trying one.  So much so that I have not been at this blog in months and months.  I want to change that and start working on it again. I love social media.  All of it.  It keeps us connected with the world around us.

I like Facebook but one of my pet peeves is when people share those wonderful recipes, you cannot post it onto Pinterest.  Facebook does not arrange things in any particular order except by time.  So even if you share a recipe, it is hard to find it ever again without looking through everything.

I love Pinterest.  You can arrange the great things and ideas you find onto boards and then have easy access to them.  I have tons of recipes.

I found a great one today on Facebook but once again, cannot pin it to Pinterest because it is not allowed.  So, I'm going to repost that recipe here for you.  And then pin it to Pinterest.  I haven't tried it yet but it looks and sounds yummy.  I would love to give credit to whomever shared it first, but I haven't the foggiest idea.  So I apologize if I stole someone's recipe.
