One of the things that I love about social media (Facebook in particular) is that when my friends or family come across a recipe that they think might interest me, they take the time to “tag” me in their find and poof – it’s on my Facebook news feed for me to explore later.

My sisters are especially great at finding things that tickle my taste buds. (Love you guys!)
