Beef Picadillo Nachos

What is your favorite thing about football? The thrill of competition? The sportsmanship? An exciting game between rivals? For me, it’s the snacks. Not that I don’t enjoy the game because I do like football. But I reallllllly enjoy the snacks. These Beef Picadillo Nachos […]

Beef Stew with Creamy Baked Grits

It’s January. Holiday cheer has been replaced by routine, holiday weight, the common cold, and frigid temps. It is easy to dread the short days and long winter ahead. But I think this is the best time of year to cozy up, slow down, catch up on some […]
