Well with the chill settling in, my cooking (when I do), will get heartier. I love this time of year and making great smells permeate the house. Found this on Facebook from Recipe and Cooking Guide. It will not dissappoint and is worthy of sharing. I hope you enjoy, my family sure did. Photos, Google Images.
