Great meals are often made up of ingredients that you can’t buy at the store and at Not Your Average Joe’s we understand that. Our menu consists of made-from-scratch ingredients with “not your average” twists on each dish. For the month of February we share with you how to make sour cream with a little extra love. The key to a great meal is the individuality and creativity of each component that makes up the meal. Sour cream is often used for many reasons such as a mixing agent in making sauces, garnishes, dips, and so much more. Impress your loved ones this month with our easy to make recipe that will add a little more to your family’s favorites.
