This is a special day guys! This month marks 1 year with the Recipe ReDux! I remember how excited and happy I was to be accepted into the wonderful group of foodie bloggers and become a member. These posts are some of my favorites. I love the fun little challenge presented to us each month. The theme for each new months gets posted on the 1st of that month. So when a new month rolls around, the first thing I do is click over to the ReDux site, log in, and check out the ever-awaited theme!
I suggested that our leaders make a Facebook group for all the member many months ago, and they finally did just that a few months ago. So now not only do we all connect each month through our linked-up recipes, but we also get to connect each day sharing our posts and visiting each others blogs. The ReDux ladies (I’m pretty sure we are all women!) are some of the best and most creative foodies. I am so happy to be a part and be able to connect with them! XOXO

Until the above picture happened. My mom had bought some whole yellow mustard seeds thinking she needed them to make corned beef and the packet of spices wasn’t included. Long story short, she never ended up using the little bottle of mustard seeds and it sadly sat there in the cabinet for a while. Until I realized it was my chance to make my own homemade mustard!Read More
