Chicken Fajitas

I am a slave to spice.  I live on Frank’s.  Usually dinner is Frank’s with a side of whatever else we’re having.  I literally put that **** on EVERYTHING.  I also absolutely love Mexican food and Southwestern flavors – hence my obsession with Bobby Flay.  And who doesn’t love sangria?

One of the simplest Mexican dishes to master is the fajita, and for drinks, there’s the Spanish sangria.  That’s partly because there’s no real formula for either, save a few basic rules, and because anything wrapped in a warm tortilla or with wine and some hot sauce is – in my opinion – worth dying for.

Perfect Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup

Fall is my favorite season.  Being in Florida, I have to celebrate as hard as I can to make myself feel like it’s fall, because apart from the one day it cools down to 65, there isn’t much to remind you of fall here.  Everyone who loves fall loves that delicious PSL – pumpkin spice latte!!  Here’s a super easy way to make the simple syrup at home, avoiding the long lines and, best of all, the price tag.
