These sound tasty, but the raw egg in the second one has me worried!

You can always use a bit of cream instead of the egg and that is what I use, I was also told you could get pasturized egg at Walmarts and that would work as well, I am sorry I forgot to add the additional information.


I am working on some Holiday recipes and hope to post in the next day or two.

If anyone has any suggestion please let me know.

thanks so much for reading my post.

I began cooking at the age of 9 with my father and have always loved trying new recipes. Beware: I am fond of onions and peppers! I am diabetic so I do try to cook more healthy dishes these days. My door is always open to trying and sharing new recipes. Let's see what we can cook up with this blog!
