First of all, I want to wish my husband a happy birthday! I am going to attempt to make a rhubarb pie (his favorite) for him so hopefully it will turn out & I can blog about it.
I love onion rings so much that I often substitute them for fries at a restaurant even though I know they are fried in oil and not healthy at all. The next best thing? Baked onion rings! I thought these tasted great and have made them a couple of times as side dishes to a meal. Dipping them in barbecue sauce makes them even better! (does anyone else use this condiment for onion rings?)
*I would also like to let everyone know that I have been reading up on photography so I'm hoping that I will have some better pictures on my site! These next few posts will still be pictures I took awhile ago since I have fallen behind on posting.
