Well, I hope everyone is thawed by now and has sufficient water for a shower. What a memory to start the year.
In this issue I share with you three more recipes I think everyone will want to try.
One more thing: Please remember to support MONTROSE STAR advertisers as many were hit hard financially by the ice storm.
