Fiesta Bacon Corn Dip

Superbowl Sunday is right around the corner. To me this means time to find the best appetizer recipes I can. I couldn't care less about who is playing.

When we were in Austin we loved our dinner at Moonshine. The Green Chile … [Read more...]

After our binge eating in Texas we wanted to just enjoy some lighter dinners. To me that means salads all week long. But I can get pretty bored with lettuce salads since I eat those for lunch most days also, so for filling but light dinners I turn to vegetable … [Read more...]
