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 […]

Asparagus and Eggs – Two Ways

My latest food crush grows in ditches and tastes like summer. I always hated asparagus growing up, but have come to really like it as an adult. In my early married years I tried baking it a few times, and even enjoyed success with it when I had it smothered in sauces. My white Béchamel […]
