Chicken, Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Mexican food. I could eat it everyday, and twice on Sundays. I’m just sayin’. This is one of our household faves, and I thought I’d share it with you. It’s quick and easy if you want it to be, or complex if you want to do it all […]

New Beginnings

Spring is always a time of re-newal and new beginnings on the farm as we plant crops and wait for them to grow and mature into harvest, but this year we have a new beginning in the addition of our third child. It has been quite a year for us.  New house before Christmas, finishing […]

Shredded Beef Enchiladas
