Steak Fajita Taco Salad

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! So this is my attempt at a homemade Costa Vida or Cafe Rio Salad! I won’t say they taste identical…but it just is one delicious meal! The beauty of this recipe is that if your “men folk” don’t like salads…they can wrap that tortilla up and call it a “man-urrito”!

Creamy Chicken and Herb Dumplings

My Aunt Janie was an AMAZING cook! The first time I had Chicken and Dumplings was sitting at her small kitchen table. It was one of the most delicious dishes I’ve ever tasted. The soup was creamy and full of flavor, the dumplings big and fluffy. Over the years I’ve added a few of my own twists…like herbs, to those big fluffy dumplings. This is a great winter one pot meal that my entire family loves!
