Piggy backing off of Lora’s last post, “The Ranch Table” I thought it would be fun to do a post with some recipe favorites! I asked others what their favorites are to cook for their men and/or on a work day and here is what we came up with. I am excited to try some of these for myself. Happy cooking/baking! :)
