Welcome Mix and Match Mama Readers!

 I have followed Shay's blogs for a while now and I just love her.  I live in the same area as she does and was fortunate enough to bump in to her one day at Chick-fil-a.  I debated whether or not to introduce my self and I am so glad I decided to say hello!  She is super nice and was genuinely interested in my blogs.  She asked me to email her the links, she visited them, left me sweet comments and now she is directing all of her readers to my little recipe blog.  So Nice, right?!

So, in honor of "Mix and Match Mama Day" on my blog I have posted two of my favorite recipes.  I make Taco Spaghetti A.LOT. during the fall and winter months.  It is just so comforting!  We like it so much around here that I rarely make traditional spaghetti anymore.  Chocolate Cobbler has become a staple in our house.  It is too easy to make.  You can adjust the recipe for a large crowd or a single serving (which can sometimes be a bad thing for my waistline).

I hope you enjoy these recipes as well as others on my blog.  I would love your feedback!  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Thank you again to the Mix and Match Mama!  And to my followers, go check her blog out if you haven't already !  You will LOVE it!

Hi there, I saw your link at mix and match. The spaghetti looks delicious. One question, does the 16 oz of hot sauce make it super hot?

I looked at some of your other recipes and I will definitely be back to visit again!

Your recipes look great! I, too, am a foodie, so I'll definitely be stopping by a lot now that Shay has introduced me to your blog! :)

Amanda said...

Is hot sauce what you call salsa? Surely that's not meaning 16 oz of Tobasco or Frank's red Hot, right?

Lyric Muir said...

Yes it is salsa! Yikes I need to clarify that don't I?!?!
