The game kicks off with a number of pickle recipes. The Cheesy Pickle Taquitos look and sound tasty. Everything But The Kitchen Dink is packed with tantalizing photos that we warn you will make you hungry. Sherri's directions are clear and concise and include short commentary about the recipes that in some cases talk about pickleball.
