I’m part of a monthly ladies’ supper club. Surprised? I thought not. Each woman brings something they have never made before and to begin our meal, we each talk about the item we’ve contributed. Not only is it hard to figure out what new item to make, we also cater to several food intolerances. At first, this was hard. Gluten-free, dairy-free, andddd a brand new recipe?
