cream cheese is a prerequisite

I got very little done today because of this...


yes if you've read it you know what I'm talking about. I'm so glad so many of you recommended this book. Now I'm probably the last person to read it, but I finally got to it in my stack and can seriously not put it down. Love it!

Oh and have I mentioned our serious love for all things Tex-Mex! Oh how we love our queso and tacos, but give us a killer empanada and you've made it a fantastic day. Now I won't lie...I really like my empanadas fried but I found a great recipe that eliminates the fry daddy and keeps the flavor. And by who else than the queen of all things tasty with cream cheese, Ms. Paula Deen. Oh, I love the Deen.

Oh yeah. We're talking some seriously good empanadas. Go here for her recipe. But I will tell you that I changed it up a bit for no other reason than I like my beef. Instead of the chicken I cooked up a pound of ground beef instead. Serve it with some guac and queso and you're set.

Actually, I think I'm the last person on earth to read that book! I'm such a slacker. I really need to just start reading it...so many people have recommended it.

And, yum, on the empanadas!
