Hearts of Palm Street Tacos

So, guys.  Gals.  Friends.  We need to talk.

This taco is LIFE.  CHANGING.

I’m not one to be overly dramatic (haha…no, seriously) about food, but holy-fried-middle-of-a-palm-tree-leaf, this is a tasty, tasty taco.

It’s pretty yum.

It’s also one of those dump-everything-in-a-bowl and mix recipes.  Sometimes, those are the best kinds.  Actually, who am I kidding?  Those are ALWAYS the best kinds.

Yup.  Another bundt cake. I have to confess, I'm a little bit obsessed with the bundt cake lately.  I think it's because they're way easy.  There are no layers, no lug-out-the-KitchenAid frostings, no fuss. And right now, I'm all about no-fuss. What is it about this time of year?  It's SOOOOO ... read more
