While brainstorming for ideas, I turned the package over and saw an easy recipe that I thought would be fun to make because it’s so colorful! IContinue Reading

Bacon Fried Rice Recipe

I thought I’d try this!  I’ve had pork fried rice before, but not specifically “Bacon” Fried Rice.

Years later, some of the cooking tips from many of the dishes still lingers in my memory and I try to incorporate them into meals from time-to-time.

Southwestern Pork Tostadas Recipe

As a family, some of our “go-to” weeknight meals consist of something like tacos, burritos…anything Mexican-food related that can be customizable.
