I was living in Atlanta the first time I had calamari tacos. I pretty much had a mouthgasm and my mind was blown. I had just about everything you could think of nestled into a warm pillowy tortilla…but fried calamari just sent me over the edge (the good edge, not the bad one). I had…
Those of you who’ve been following me for years, know that tacos are my little hand-held lovers that don’t require batteries. I effing LOVE a good taco. If I could open up a restaurant, I’d serve brunch, burgers and tacos — I’m so serious. What I love about a taco is that it can literally…

I wanted tacos, and no amount of snow was gonna stop that from happening. You already know how I feel about tacos. They’re my little pieces of heaven in a cruel and cold dog-eat-dog world. Tacos…are everything.
I don’t understand my taco addiction, and I don’t dare try to. I just accept it and roll with it. For those who are unaware, my taco addiction is pretty outta hand.

However, I’ll spare you the weird concoctions for now, and just bless you with some simple and delicious taco recipes that you can replicate in your own kitchen.
If you don’t appreciate nor respect the taco, we can’t be friends. The taco is the greatest culinary invention ever. It’s the cousin of the sandwich. A “shell” that cradles your favorite ingredients, and is eaten with your hands. Everything tastes good in a taco — even spaghetti (I know…I know). Again, it’s the same concept as the sandwich, so you cannot go wrong here folks.
