I'm Back!!

I really hope this time I can keep up with blogging! Please stick with me!!

Now...before I continue blogging about couponing, my adorable nephews, and more I have decided to first share a recipe! I found it on the Taste of Home website.

I made this recipe for a 4th of July BBQ we had at my sisters this last weekend. I volunteered to bring the side dishes and one that I brought was this delicious pasta salad. I highly recommend you try this - it will now be my go to for BBQ's and potlucks. Enjoy!!
