Straight from the Kitchen: Sour Cream Casserole

Today’s recipe was an adaption from a recipe I found on allrecipes.com one night. When I came across the recipe I started drooling, but (as usual) I was missing some ingredients. I took inspiration from the recipe, put my own thing together, and when it was done? Even Jellybean asked for seconds (and ate leftovers, which she NEVER does!).
