With the mild winter that we had last year, my Rosemary plants came back Full-force. I might not be so lucky this winter. This is good to know. You will never have to buy another Rosemary plant again. Not only that, you can make MANY of these plants and give them to your friends, ~TNF

My friend MaryAnn Hatala shared this recipe. 1 pound of browned breakfast sausage and 1 pkg. of cream cheese. Stuff the mixture into mini sweet peppers and bake... for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
