    Altho these look so delicious I’m drooling, gonna have to pass. We’re both trying to watch our weight. Hubs tummy getting bigger and well, my butt and thighs don’t need any more added to them. But oh girl, so good, I’ll just have to think about them and pass. Not even going to pin this cause I know if I do I’ll be printing out recipe to make them. You really know how to tempt a person, lol.
