A few weeks ago my daughter and I went to visit our dear friend Jacklin. We planned a girl’s night out at Jacklin’s new home. We went to the grocery store and pick up all the ingredients for my daughter’s favorite tacos. Upon our arrival we got the tour of her new place. It was decorated perfectly and felt so warm and cozy. Jacklin set a lovely table while I helped my daughter with the cooking. We even made creamy chocolate fudge for dessert. We shared stories and had lots of laughs over what turned out to be a truly delicious meal. Jacklin loved the tacos so much we had to give her the recipe. The crunchy texture of the corn tortilla filled with the perfectly seasoned meat then topped with the cold and crunchy slaw made for a few very delicious bites. This is a quick and easy meal that you’ll want to try.
2 chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes

A few years ago my husband and I got away for a little trip to Lewis, Delaware. We stayed at a lovely bed and breakfast. It was a large old house and the new owners renovated the house from top to bottom. We ate our breakfast on the enclosed front porch. Very romantic! The breakfast we were served the first morning was southwestern scrambled eggs. It was so delicious I had to recreate it at home. I was feeling inspired so I came up with and Italian scramble as well. I call these lazy weekend scrambles. They do take a little extra time but these delicious eggs are worth it.The only thing you need to know about scrambling eggs is they are a protein and need to cook slowly so they don’t turnout like rubber.
