The lovely Anita Cookie joined me for our Football Sunday episode. In this video we made classic Margaritas using freshly squeezed lime juice. Not only preferred for its authentic flavor but it's far less calories than the sugary mixes. Other dishes we made that day were hot wings, quesadillas, homemade popcorn and nachos. I guess it was a Tex Mex day. You can see all those videos on this channel or on our site. When you cook for yourself you can Save Money, Eat Healthier, Live Greener and Have Fun!
