Spicy Turkey Wrap Recipe

Posted June 30, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetI had a the McWrap Sweet Chili with Grilled Chicken at McDonald’s, and really enjoyed it. I didn’t enjoy the 400 calories.

Posted June 20, 2015 By dealinanddishin

Adventures in the Kitchen: The Food Dehydrator

Posted May 31, 2015 By dealinanddishin

TweetPost contains affiliate links to products, but the opinions are my own. I remember as a kid my mom making fruit roll ups in a dehydrator…one time. I don’t know if we didn’t like them, or it is just not our thing to eat a lot of dried fruits. The second is probably most accurate. It […]
