All things hasselback seem to be the current rage. Give Tex-Mex a try with Grilled Hassleback Fajita Stuffed Chicken!

If tacos and quesadillas had a baby, they’d totally be these taco quesadillas! These beef quesadillas are perfect for on the go eating or at home, too.

Desserts with Dairy

I love key limes, and I love my Instant Pot. Instant Pot Key Lime Cheesecake sounds like a match made in heaven, and light enough for spring and summer.

Did you make Creamy Homemade Vanilla Pudding when you were a kid? We did and if you want the real deal, ditch the box and make it from scratch! (Even if you make it from the box, I’ll still love you. I happen to have a box in my pantry, wink-wink).

I may have saved the best for last. Tres Leches Cake is alight cake soaked in a sweet milk mixture and topped with fresh whipped cream and cinnamon. Sounds heavenly, doesn’t it?

Oh, and before I go….one more for you –

Q: Which is the most religious cheese?

A: Swiss, because it is holy
