Easy & Very Cheesy Fajita Nachos

This adopted recipe comes from when I was single. I wanted something quick and easy for dinner. Something hardy! Less than 10 simple ingredients and I had very cheesy fajita nachos on the table. I dislike soggy chips so this recipe eliminates that issue.

Skillet Pasta Carbonara

JD is such a sexy man cooking pasta alla carbonara! I love it in its many forms and variations. Luscious and wonderfully indulgent, it takes him as long to prepare as it does for the pasta to cook. Simple, high quality ingredients make all the difference and when you add a pinch of nutmeg the fans rave. JD uses a recipe at Simply Delicious as his base and let’s his imagination soar with his scarlett skillet in hand.
