Top Review by Cooking Virgo

I am adding this recipe to my main cookbook, I haven't yet tried it but I absolutely hope to come spring. : D I wanted to leave you a message, but because I am not a premium member, no luck. I am from Lincoln, IL and my family is from Macoupin County, I just wanted to say that I was fun looking at your profile because I completely know the area and of course, it's fun seeing people close to home :D Bye.
