Bruschetta Melts

One of my favorite foods is bruschetta. Sometimes on a Friday or Sunday evening, instead of making dinner, we choose to just have a plate of bruschetta. When I saw this in a Taste of Home magazine from 2015 (ok, I have been kinda busy and am just sitting down to go through some old … Continue reading

Trudicita Makes Salsa

Super Bowl Supplies

We all know what Super Bowl means….food, lots and lots of food; oh yes and I guess football. But for a lot of us, who don’t even really know who is playing or what a football even looks like, food is the central core of what Super Bowl Sunday is all about. I have to admit … Continue reading
