    1. I would love to see more family recipes. I absolutely love tried and true family recipes ( for Ben to make of course 😜)

      1. It links to a product spelled V-E-Geta. The blog post has it spelled V-A-Geta all through it. So unless there’s another product out there spelled the vag way, then it doesn’t appear to be spelled correctly unless you’re seeing something I’m not. I’m intrigued, lol
