  1. Stopping by from SITS to say HI

    It is 1 a.m. and THAT looks soooooo delish!

  2. Thanks so much for trying to link up. Unfortunately, Mr. Linky was working yesterday but went down sometime all around blogland. It's not working anywhere so he has been coming and going. They have been trying to work this glitch out and it's been great for awhile but it just happened again. My apologies. Hope you can join us again next week and he'll be back up and working. :)

  3. Mmmmmm! I'm going to have to try that! I love Mexican. However, black beans freak my kids out! I have a yummy chimichanga recipe that is a definite keeper. I'll post it next week. I'm starving now!

  4. Oh my goodness...this looks incredible. I will have to try this out this weekend! Thanks!

  5. These shells look fantastic. I really think my family would love these. I am so glad I found your blog.
