I have to admit that while I am a huge seafood fan, I am not a fan of fish or shellfish tacos. But my boys are. So when I spotted shrimp tacos with lime slaw in the Better Homes and Garden Dinner on a Dollar magazine, I knew I needed to try it. As far recipes go, this one… Continue reading
I have to admit when I was looking into colleges, I really didn’t take advantage of college fairs. In hindsight I wish I had.
