Thirsty Thursday Sweet and Tart

Thirsty Thursday Sweet Tart

Candy is awesome. You know it, I know it – Candy rocks! That’s why this week’s Thirsty Thursday addition is inspired by …drum roll please… candy!

What happens when you combine a popular Thanksgiving side dish with a protein? Why you get a full meal, of course! It’s almost Turkey Day here in the U.S. and I thought I would get a jump start on some fun recipes. The first one is this Chicken & Green Bean Casserole with homemade french […]
