One of my favorite staff meals at the restaurant is always these tacos. Anytime I see a cook walk in the door with 3 bags of corn tortillas hangin’ from their hand, I know what day it is, and I do my little happy dance.
Homemade Pizza, the Healthy Way
Is there a time I'm not craving pizza? Spoiler alert: there isn't. Thanks to COVID-19, I haven't had pizza from a pizzeria since March 2020. Seriously. My family is finally thinking about getting takeout, now that we're all about to be completely vaccinated. This would be our first restaurant food in over a year because we took restrictions seriously and decided it wasn't worth the risk. Pizza is very high on our wishlist.

There's always those days that we just can't decide on what to eat. Do we want pizza? Pasta? Burgers? The choices are endless, and so to, it seems, is the decision making process. However, deciding on a meal doesn't have to be so difficult. Sometimes, we just need to have the right inspiration. Perhaps often, we need the right set of instructions to get us from A to B. Sometimes, we just need a bit of smoky, tasty, comfort food. and nothing says comfort like BBQ pork ribs. During those nice summer evenings, or cold winter nights indoors, a hearty and delicious meal can be just what's needed, and believe me, these dishes will not disappoint.

Summer. I love summer. I love to complain about how hot it is. I love being able to jump into a crystal clear pool after sweating out toxins stored over winter.
