Finish Your Shopping, Make Cookies & Help a Family!

Tastefully Simple (est. 1995) - The food you love, the time you deserve. (tm)Last week I invited you to help a refugee family while at the same time finishing some of your holiday shopping for your holiday meals and gifts by ordering something from the Tastefully Simple catalog party I'm holding. I thought I'd share a recipe which looks amazing - amazing as far as it would taste and amazing as far as it looks so easy to prepare!

But first, a little info on the refuge family and how you can help -

  • This family of seven was originally from the Congo and had to flee to South Africa because of the violence they all experienced. Sadly, in South Africa they continued to be threatened, so they were accepted as refugees here in the USA. This family has experienced great trauma and difficulty, but are trying to start over and experience a life where they are not threatened.
  • The catalog "party" is open through December 14, 2012. If you follow this link it will take you to the Tastefully Simple site where you will see the delicious items in their catalog and may place an order, if you choose to do so. If you order by December 10, 2012, you will receive your order before Christmas! Should you decide to order something, please enter me, Lynda Freeman, as the hostess and all the hostess gifts will go to the refugee family.
This is the recipe . . . enjoy!
