April BRC

If you’re wondering whether Rebecca’s Barefoot on a Budget challenge is in place of our regularly scheduled BRC recipes, you’ve come to the right place.  The “Budget” challenge, in fact is not in place of BRC; it is a separate challenge we’ve implemented with the intention of moving through Ina’s recipes a little quicker – 4 is better than 3 right?? – as well as challenging the group to think a little outside the proverbial box.

So without further ado, I present you with April’s BRC winner…


Anne of Anne Strawberry referred the most people to the BB blog in March. Yay Anne!!

She has chosen Savory Coeur a la Creme has her BRC recipe

which should be posted on Thursday, April 16th.
