Tender slow cooked short ribs piled inside soft corn tortillas with jack cheese and topped with a mild homemade tomatillo salsa.

I get asked all the time where inspiration comes from.  Generally, just a random idea OR after i've eaten out I want to remake it at home.  A...

Pot roast was my favorite meal growing up.  My mom always made great pot roast, she would cook it in the crockpot in the morning and by dinner time it was ready to eat.  I love a good roast.
