Super simple sassy Spanish sauté! (don’t punch) I’m not kidding when I say this one is seeeemple. The legwork (if you can even call it that) is all in the prep.

Oh that’s right. With real life Fritos and everything. I wanted to call this “Totally Healthier Frito Pie,” because it really kind of is. With the use of ground turkey, fresh veggies, some good kidney and pinto beans, some termaters, spices, corn, a piece of your heart, lightly salted Frito chippies and some good cheddar […]

Come on girls. Do you believe in love? ‘Cause I got something to say about it. And it goes something like this. Oh wait. Wrong forum! Or is it? On second thought, I DO have something to say about this, and it goes something like this: Can we just put beer in everything already? Who’s […]
