Brie Queso

Every once in a while I venture out for a girl’s only night. It usually entails wine drinking, appetizers, lots of food and of course good girl time. This past week since we had company in town we decided to do a girls only family night at a local restaurant. We sat down and...

Southwestern Deviled Eggs
