Shrimp Tacos with Cilantro Lime Slaw

Shrimp tacos. Fish tacos. Crab tacos. Any taco with a seafood filling is on the top of my list. I order them in restaurants often but have never actually made any at home. This was my first attempt and I was pleased with the results. This is a perfect summer meal. There are several steps…

Cheeseburger Ring

Refrigerated crescent rolls are like duct tape. They can hold together a tasty dish just as duct tape holds together anything that is in need of repair. Recipes using crescent rolls have increased exponentially over the last 5-10 years and I dare say the recipes have become more tasty along the way. Piggies in a…
