Creamy Jalapeno Salsa

When you receive an email asking you to come try out burritos, chips, salsa and queso at a local Tex-Mex restaurant you say, YES. Plain and simple. We loaded up the car and headed to our local Freebirds restaurant for a nice little family

Pull Apart Cheddar Pesto Bread

Most Americans were gathered around their TV sets last night listening to the Presidential results. I sat on the couch, praying for our country that whoever won would do a great job leading this country for the next four years.
