Crispy Pan-Fried Chicken Flautas

I know, I know. This weekend is the super bowl and all that jazz. To be honest, we’ll probably have the game on. Maybe watch a few commercials. But it’s really not our thing. But I know for many of you, the superbowl is a big deal. And so is the food. And I can...

Cookie Dough Cream Pie

We went four days with no dessert in the house. I managed to scrounge two little squares of Olive & Sinclair chocolate the first night. Then there was nothing. Well, except ice cream.

Cinnamon Chocolate Churro Cupcakes

Taco night is quickly become a tradition around these parts. Hosted by our lovely neighbor, these nights are basically an excuse to get together. Neighbors, friends, new friends… and tacos.
