Check out the feature!

A few weeks ago I was approached by Joyce, who is the author of "Oregon Mom's Empty Nest" as to whether or not I'd be interested in sharing one of my favorite recipes on her blog with her readers. Of course I jumped at the chance and my all-time favorite recipe...Smoked Sausage Jambalaya...was published this morning.

Thank you again, Joyce for asking me to contribute. I was happy to. And to all my readers, please take a gander over to Joyce's website and check out her journal, garden page, and all the fabulous recipes she also has to share!
