Tamale Ring ~ Easy, Quick and Delicious

A few weeks ago an online friend sent me a recipe to try.  It sounded so good I tried it right away and it was delicious! I asked her~Julia~ if I could share her recipe and she said yes.  I could hardly wait to share it with you.  This is a quick, easily and delicious meal that everyone in our family absolutely loved and we all want it again.  Julia told me how good the leftovers are but we almost never have leftovers in our house so I will trust her with that.

Julia doesn’t have a blog but she does have an Etsy shop and an Ebay store  and if you have men in your life, big or little, they will love the Military dog tags that she and her husband make.  Their favorite material to use ~ “anything we can recycle or upcycle”.

And now for the delicious recipe!

      Thanks for stopping by, Sherry ~ sorry to hear you couldn’t pin it….I think it’s fine on my end (but you never know!) ~ it may have just been a pinterest fluke.
