Old Fashioned Egg Custard Recipe
I love being able to entertain friends and family at my home in a moments notice.
I’ve always wanted to be the type that was prepared with snacks or desserts and drinks to offer anyone that might pop in for a visit.
The reality is that I often forget to stop at the grocery store and usually don’t keep a lot of desserts on hand. But if you have just one simple recipe that you can whip up in not time, you’ll be prepared with something sweet to offer your visitors.
