    Simple Weeknight Beef Tacos

    These Simple Weeknight Beef Tacos are one of my favorite things to fix on those nights when you are short on time or too tired to cook. They are so quick and simple to make. I like to buy ground beef when it’s on sale and cook up a big batch of taco meat.

    Kitchen Table Memiors: Beef Bourguignon

    It was in my Mother’s kitchen that my great love affair with food and entertaining first began. She was, and still is, an amazing cook. Gathering inspiration from her many magazine subscriptions, cookbooks and recipes swaps with friends and relatives. No, there was no Google or Food Network back then and the only Chefs that I can recall on television at the time were Julia Child and Justin Wilson (Comedic Cajun Chef). My mother enjoyed cutting out recipes and entertaining ideas from her favorite magazines (Sunset, Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle and Woman’s Day) and pasting them in a big scrapbook to have for a ┬álater day. It was…
