- I’m usually a on the rocks no salt kinda girl… then I discovered this AMAZING Sweet Hawaiian Rock and it makes for the BEST Margaritas.
- Candied Jalapeños are sometimes referred to as cowboy candy and they are ridiculously addictive. The sweet heat of candied jalapeños also makes a great little party appetizer served with crackers and cream cheese.
