Tater Tot Burger with Sriracha Sour Cream

Paprika Shrimp and Sausage Quinoa Paella

Life’s funny, isn’t it? One minute you’re sitting there enjoying a nice Mother’s Day breakfast that your husband made you, and the next minute you’re talking to The Today Show and agreeing to take a last minute flight to JFK so that you can stand behind a podium for 3 minutes and pretty much say […]
