Chicken Taco Twist

cttwist11

Yep. Pretty obnoxious, isn’t it? And I don’t even have an excuse. So embarrassing! One minute I was craving tacos (shhhhocker) and the next I was stuffing two French breads with this spicy chicken taco mixture with cheese and beans and chipotle peppers. And then I started twisting it up all like some harebrained villain […]

Kiss me, I’m  . . . hyper? Wait, that’s not it. Actually, my maiden name is Blann. Might as well be O’Blann, right? O’Blann of the Thistle and Shamrock. O’Blann and the Four-Leaf Clovers (that would be my band). O’Blann’s dancin’ her fifth jig out there, lassie! Top of the morning to her face! So […]

I . . . don’t even know where to begin. Perhaps that reejankulously long title? It’s because I couldn’t leave any word out! And believe me, this is watered down from what it was before. I was going to call it Shrimp Arugula Garlic Ginger Green Curry Paste Coconut Sugar Double Pepper Naan Cilantro Lime […]
