 These bars get rave reviews from my husband and neighbors. They are so tasty! The base is chewy and sweet and the filling is cool, tangy, and such a lovely velvety texture. If you’re looking for more of a holiday bar, I think homemade… Continue Reading “Raw Berry Bars”

Langostino Tacos

While I was looking for wild caught fish that’s easy to deal with at Costco the other day, I ran across Langostino “Lobster Tails”. Lobster? Not really, but they do taste like miniature lobster tails. And after searching “what is langostino” in Wikipedia, let’s… Continue Reading “Langostino Tacos”
