Pairs Well With
Just did the recipe for my Family. it was a hit and I was a little afraid the wouldn't like it and here's why... It has Anchovies in it. okay don't judge until you have tried it. I didn't tell them I just made it and served it all fancy like. when I tasted it I thought oh no ! they will hate it.but no one said anything. I slowly asked if they like it and they all did to my surprise. My niece Jaimee asked what were the hairy things and I just told her it was a spice. i know I lied. but for a good cause. I told the truth later. Lol
