From the Show Mom’s Cooking

I was watching the show “mom’s cooking” and saw them make these recipes. The banana bread looks awesome and had some great tips. But Antoinette and Rockie made these turnovers with such ease I had to come post it! How easy and cheap to make and you can also do your own filling and make these ahead of time. Everyone wins with these recipes. I’ll post back with my reviews soon. This will definitely go in my list of budget meals. Way to go Mom’s cooking! Special thanks to Antoinette and Rockie for the recipes and for making this look easy. If you want to see the video go to the website.
