Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Thank you for the free ebook I will definitely be using it as in everyday life things happen and you have to pull back on the reigns or you won't make it.

The Poor Man's Cabbage Casserole is a taste I remember growing up. My mom was 100% Croation and they called it pigs in a blanket, something different than the American version with a hog dog baked in a crescent roll! She rolled up a ground beef mixture into cabbage leaves, but used canned tomato soup for the sauce like this recipe. When the beef juices mix with the tomato soup, it transforms it into a tasty tomato sauce!

The ingredient list is missing Bacon Bits. The original copy of the recipie says 1/4 cup. http://www.julieseatsandtreats.com/2012/08/c == rack-potatoes/

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have updated the eCookbook.

I will try this tonight

they all sound great can't wait to get started
