Mexican Summer Favorites (and a $400 giveaway!)

I hope y’all remember my sweet friend Samantha from Five Heart Home?  Her amazing recipes have been feeding my family for the past two years.  Honestly.

crock pot recipe: amazing (and easy!) chicken and black bean tacos!

Even better, she (along with her delicious Texas-style, home-cooked meals) has been one of my co-hosts for our weekly link party.

AND… (I know, more, really?!) she’s going to be my neighbor soon.  Eek!  I actually got to meet her about a month ago, and it was totally weird not weird.  Even though we’d only met online, it turns out she’s not a crazy stalker.  She and her husband and three kids (there really are 5 hearts in her home 😉 ) are precious, kind, and fun.  And we drank margaritas and ate Mexican food while our kids played on the playground.

Not sure it gets any more Texan than that.
