Mexican Tomatillo Soup


| mexican tomatillo soup | I know, I’ve been on a MAJOR sweet bender. Please forgive me.

White Girl Mexican Soup


White Girl Mexican Soup { i’m having an affair } What’s that? An affair you say? It’s not nearly as titillating…my current love is my slow cooker. Steamy stuff, I know. My slow cooker has been sitting, completely ignored and dusty in the back of the hallway closet. He burned me not quite a decade ago. I was making spaghetti and meatballs and thought…
