Mexican Beef and Corn Soup

So the other day, really a week ago, I decided to try my hand at youtube! It has been a busy week, with work, homemaking, blogging and trying to learn how to make videos… I have learned a few things, but my biggest lesson learned is this…. I am not used to talking about my recipes… I am used to writing and still photography. I got that covered, but this talkie movie concept… well, it’s gonna take me a few videos to get comfortable.. This recipe is so good and with not too many cool days left I know that I need to get a few more comfort recipes in before I start working my Spring and Summer “menu”

If you are interested, follow me on youtube!! It’s bound to be comical to say the least!
