June's Cookbook Club: Tasty Food Blog Picks!

We will start by sharing what we've chosen to cook, and any tips or challenges we had to overcome. This month's pick is to make a dish from the Tasty Food Blog! Feel free to pick any Tasty recipe, whether it’s a dessert, main course or side dish. As we do not want anyone to make special grocery store trips at this time, whatever you have in the house or planned in with your regular grocery shopping trip is fine!
