RECIPE BACKSTORY
I picked up a small recipe card from a spin wheel at a local grocery store (I think Brookshire's) and after I tried it for the first time, I was hooked on it's beauty AND deliciousness!! I tried finding that same card again but was unable. Good thing it stayed stuck in my head so I could share it with you fine people. ;)
