What' Cooking?

The bigger four each cook once a month. It can either be something from a recipe they choose, or something easy. The point is that they help out here and will be able to cook for themselves later. Here's what they made in November.

Tyler made fettuccine and Alfredo sauce, corn in butter sauce and brussel sprouts.

Jessica made green bean casserole and baked corn.

Doesn't the baked corn look good?
