I absolutely love Asian fusion!

Today I bring you probably one of my best creations ever.  Browsing through my mom’s Better Homes and Gardens magazine I stumbled across a recipe for Sesame Garlic Beef Tacos.  Now, anyone that knows me, knows I enjoy tacos and I especially enjoy anything Asian style.  Bringing my two loves together was a match made in Heaven.  This quick meal is easy to out together as apetizers or when you’re a busy person like I am and always on the go.  Check out episode 2 of “Cooking for Bae with A.
