What you're saying..

Thank you for the great recipes and ideas in your cookbook. I was given Desperation Dinners last year for Christmas and fell in love right away. There are several recipes that all three of my kids will eat without any complaints! Our favorite is Alicia’s Chicken with Olives. I have even made it with ground meat when I was short on groceries.
