Chipotle-Sesame Beef Tacos with Cotija, Avocado and Cilantro

El Picosito Copycat

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post and I’m proud to be working with the Beef Checkoff. I would have shared this recipe with you regardless, so the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is a perfect partner (since I already use Beef at home every week). Also, you need to know, that although they did provide me […]

March IG Challenge, Desktop Wallpaper, Holidays, and Cooking Tips

Hey you! Yeah, you the one that’s wrapped in a fleece blanket with your heater cranked up and the news on (to see if your husband will be able to get to work tomorrow after the freeze). There’s hope that spring will eventually thaw this icy planet. I’ve got a few minor reminders and a […]

Taste of Spain – Easy Dinner Recipes for Entertaining

9222322353_050aa89347_z

I’m participating in Carbonell Olive Oil’s #DareToCarbonell campaign – highlighting their three distinctive flavors of Spanish olive oil – number one in Spain since 1866, and sold in more than 50 countries. I used all three versions of oils in these recipes, and although I didn’t use the correct ones for the correct things in […]

Authentic Italian Risotto with Chicken and Rosemary

Risotto is one of those mouth-watering comfort foods that you just have to love. It’s like a glorified chicken and rice dish that is all grown up. It may not be that pretty, but hardly a grain is left in the pan after everyone fights for the last spoonful. I learned how to make it […]

Everyone loves taco night. Especially in my family. We’ve been making tacos for twenty years of our married life… and we’ve used McCormick Taco Seasoning for almost every beefy plate-full. I figured most everyone was doing the same thing, so I never thought about sharing my “recipe” for tacos. But who knows… maybe there’s someone […]

Sprittibee’s Enchilada Soup

I got a recipe on paper passed to me by someone at an office I worked at back in the 1990’s. It was called “Chili’s Enchilada Soup”, and apparently, at some point, it sprung up as a copy-cat recipe for a soup served at Chili’s restaurants. Never having eaten the soup it purported to re-create, […]

Sesame Chicken Fingers

Chicken is a staple meat in our home. We eat Beef and Fish less than chicken. Lately we eat deer also, which proved to be a leaner and much more cost effective meat than beef… and the way I cook it, you can hardly tell it isn’t beef! Besides Mexican, Greek, and American foods, we […]
