The Chambray Shirt – Three Ways!

chambray shirt The denim chambray shirt has made a comeback in a big way and I don’t see this shirt leaving our wardrobes any time soon, regardless of the season!

Chicken Fajita Quesadilla Recipe

Chicken Fajita QuesadillaDo you love Mexican food as much as we do, but get tired of eating the same burritos and taco salads? My new recipe for Chicken Fajita Quesadillas is loosely based on this one from Better Homes and Gardens. The BHG version didn’t have meat, which is a big  no-no in this house. :) The only things I actually ended up sticking to from their recipe was spraying the tortillas with cooking spray, and using cilantro and lime juice. Everything else I came up with on my own.
