QuesoBlanco

Oh wow. If you know me well, or really even at all, you know I have an obsession with queso. The hubs and I never pass up the opportunity to eat queso. We could live on chips and queso for the rest of our lives. We may have some intense digestive issues but I’m pretty…

Tacaritos {Taco-Enchilada-Burritos}

Tacaritos

Yes. Tacaritos are a thing. Why are they a thing, you ask? Why not just make really excellent tacos? Or enchiladas? Or hey, a burrito? Because.  It’s Thursday.  In my mind, making dinner looks like a beautiful apron tied around my waist, a glass of red wine next to the stove, and me peacefully taking…

ChocChipCookie

The ice melted. And then it refroze. We went to a friend’s house this morning, it was 3 hours of pure bliss. There was interaction with a respectable human over the age of 4.

Homemade Peanut Butter & Almond Butter {4 ingredients or less & 10 minutes!}
