When I decided to start blogging full-time, I knew that the cooking section of my website HAD to include my Fun-In-Laws, Dan and Kathy Owens. Their entire lives revolve around their large extended family and they are amazing hosts. I’ve attended countless get-togethers at their home over the years. The food and the company are always amazing. When I approached them about helping me with the cooking section of my blog, they responded with the same graciousness, hospitality, and humor that is customary in their home. I’m so excited to share their recipes on My Mom’s Junk and letting my readers get to know this amazing couple.
My blog has been up and running for a whopping 2 weeks. I’m new and building up a following (Everybody has to start somewhere:) So it says alot about about my family when they are willing to spend the bulk of their Saturday morning cooking and photographing food for my blog. Best. Family. Ever. They even took the time to stage the photos for me. Look at the quote by Tolkien on the cup. Love it!
Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
