Tortilla Soup Recipe - 11/30/10 10:25 PM
I love a good Tortilla Soup, but rarely like what is served at various restaurants. Amazingly enough, this quick and simple recipe which I got from my daughter, is one of my favorites. (Quick and easy doesn't hurt either!) I don't know that it is "an original" -- for all I know, it may be on the label of some can of soup. I think she got it from a friend. Hope you will try it. Tortilla Soup Ingredients: Tortilla Chips or Restaurant Style Chips 19 oz. Can of Wild Rice & Chicken Soup 10 oz. Can of Cream of Chicken (12 comments)

Escaping the Recession in Texas - 11/15/10 04:48 PM
I've lived in the Houston area almost all my life - since I was about three years old. I honestly can't imagine living anywhere else. I love to visit other places but am always glad to come home to Texas. The people are friendly, the food is awesome, entertainment and things to do are plentiful - something for everyone - and homes are affordable! Via Ashley Myers (Manning & Company Real Estate): Newsweek's Joel Kotkin wrote an article, published November 8th, about various parts of the country that seemingly withstood the pummel and push of the recession or show early signs emerging as (0 comments)
